Eager Beavers 2018 - 2019

Miss Tither

Welcome to Eager Beavers

Hello, my name is Miss Tither and I’m the teacher of Year 3 and Year 4 children in Eager Beavers' class.  Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs. Jones with our volunteer Teaching Assistant, Mrs Whalley-Smith. In Eager Beavers we aim to build upon the knowledge and skills learned in Busy Bees.  Each half term we choose a new theme that interests the children.  We make sure that learning is as active as possible and that children always know their next steps of learning.


We manage this through the following:

  • Focus group teaching
  • Valuing each child
  • Class size - 26
  • Learning outside the classroom
  • Activities are differentiated to meet the needs of each learner

Class News

This half-term, the topic in Eager Beavers is ‘Hunted'.  In Literacy, we will be reading 'Peter and the Wolf' to ultimately write our own folk tales. In Science, we will be learning about living things and their habitats, in particular those which live on our school grounds. In Design and Technology, we will be learning about healthy eating and how to achieve a balanced diet, as well as learning about what food grows in different climates. The children will design, make and evaluate their own healthy meal for a stranded sailor! The Year Four children will also be going on the four-day trip to Min-Y-Don this half term; Miss Tither will also be going whilst Miss Duffy is teaching the rest of the class at school.

Please have a look through the news and blog section in the coming weeks to see what the children have been doing.

Reading – 4 times each week for 10 minutes and written in their reading record.

Mathematics/Literacy Homework – Homework given out every Friday which alternates between Mathematics and Literacy.  Occasionally, I also set online homework on www.activelearnprimary.co.uk or on www.spag.com.  All children have their own personal login details for these websites.

Homework should be completed and handed in by the following Wednesday.

Spelling Test – Eager Beavers have a spelling test every Tuesday and new spellings to learn are given out at the end of the test to be learnt for the following week.
