Eager Beavers 2019 - 2020

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 we have two special support Teaching Assistants, Miss Duffy and Miss Canavan, with our volunteer Teaching Assistants, Mrs Whalley-Smith and Mrs McManus. On a Tuesday afternoon, during teachers' PPA time, Mrs Showering leads the class, assisted by Mrs Walmsley.

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 - 25
  • 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 ‘There's No Place Like Home'. In Literacy, we will be reading 'The Tin Forest' to ultimately write our own narratives about changing the world into a better, cleaner place. After that, we will be learning how to write a biography about a famous local person. In Geography, we will be learning how to locate where we live on different types of maps, as well as the natural and man-made structures in our community. In History, we will be learning about significant events in our locality. We will be visited by a member of the Lathom Park Trust and we will be taking a trip to the local church to learn about what Westhead was like in the past. 

Please have a look through the news and blog section in the coming weeks 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. Information about the homework will be put on SeeSaw.

SeeSaw - regular updates about our learning will be posted on SeeSaw. This is also the main point of communication between Miss Tither and parents.

Forestry clothes are required for a Tuesday afternoon.

PE kit is required for Tuesday and Thursday. This half term we are working on striking and fielding. 

Swimming kit is required for Wednesday mornings of this half term.

Children might find the following link helpful with their maths homework, or just for a little bit of extra maths fun at home.
