Eager Beavers 2020 - 2021

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 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 'Sparks Might Fly'. In Science, we will be learning all about electricity, linking with our DT work where we will be making our own wire loop games. Our class novel is 'The Firework-Maker's Daughter'. The topic for RE this half term is Harvest, which links with our preparation for the Harvest festival. In Music, we are learning about Gospel music, in particular looking at the song 'Lean on Me' by Bill Withers.


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
