Eager Beavers 2018 - 2019

Mr Hunt

Welcome to Eager Beavers

Hello, my name is Mr. Hunt and I’m the teacher of Year 3 and Year 4 chidlren in Eager Beavers' Class.  Our Teaching Assistants are Mrs. Jones and Mrs Showering.  In Eager Beavers we aim to build upon the knowledge 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

  • Teaching Assistants - Mrs. Jones and Mrs Showering

  • Activities are differentiated to meet the needs of each learner.

Class News

This half-term, the topic in Eager Beavers is ‘Rock and Roll'.  In Literacy, we will start off by reading Stig of the Dump by Clive King.  In Science, we will be learning about Rocks and Soils.  We will be comparing and grouping different rocks based on their properties and we will be exploring how and why they may have changed over time.  To start our History topic we will be visiting the Eco-Centre in Southport to learn about The Stone Age.  Afterwards, we will be learning more about how and when the people of The Stone Age lived.  Our P.E. this half term is Dance so please provide indoor P.E. kits.  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.
