Eager Beavers 2020 - 2021
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 and Mrs Taylor, and we have a special support Teaching Assistant Miss Duffy, with our volunteer Teaching Assistant Mrs McManus. On a Tuesday afternoon, during teachers' PPA time, Mrs Jones leads the class.
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.
This half term, our topic is 'Hunted'. In Science, we are learning about living things and their habitats and in DT we are trying to cook our own healthy, savoury meal. We are reading 'Peter and the Wolf' in English. The topic for RE this half term is the Lord's Prayer.
We manage this through the following:
- Focused group teaching
- Valuing each child
- Class size - 34
- Learning outside the classroom
- Activities are differentiated to meet the needs of each learner
Please have a look through the news, blog and gallery sections to see what the children have been doing.
Reading – recommended 4 times each week for 10 minutes and written in their reading record.
Times tables - regular times table practise is recommended for Y4 pupils, in preparation for the Multiplication Tables Check.
Mathematics/Literacy Homework – Homework is given out every Friday which alternates between Mathematics and Literacy and is due back the following Wednesday.
SeeSaw - regular updates about our learning will be posted on SeeSaw. This is also the main point of communication between Miss Tither and parents.
PE kit is required for Tuesday and Thursday.
