Eager Beavers 2017 - 2018

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 - approximately 24

  • Learning outside the classroom

  • Teaching Assistants - Mrs. Freestone, Mrs. Jones, Mrs. Walsh and Mrs. Taylor

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

Class News

This half-term, the topic in Eager Beavers is ‘How Does Your Garden Grow'.  In Literacy, we will be reading Charlotte's Web.  We will be acting out parts of the story and considering how certain characters are feeling as we go through it.  We will also be taking a look at the presentations the children have produced for their World Cup country.  In Science, we will be learning about Plants, particularly focusing on the parts and their functions.  We will also be carrying out a number of investigations into water transportation, seed dispersal and photosynthesis .  Our P.E. this half term is Gymnastics 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.
