Hello everyone and welcome to Class 3 2020/21. The Class Teacher is Mr Meadows and there are currently 29 pupils in this class. This class is supported by Miss Thompson.
I am Mr Meadows, and I am one of the Year 4 teachers at Consett Junior School. I have been a teacher for twenty-two years, and I have taught in all year groups across KS2. I work as Numeracy and Forest School subject lead. In school I am a loyal member of Aynsley (blue house). Go Aynsley!
About Class 3
In Class 3 we are lucky enough to be supported by Miss Thompson, and on a Tuesday afternoon she will teach us in the foundation subjects (RE, Art and Music) while I have my PPA time. Miss Thompson and I are both Harry Potter super fans. If you are not a Harry Potter fan now, you will be by the end of Y4.
In lower KS2 we follow the Jane Considine approach to delivering writing. Our English work will be based around Lock and Key House; The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe; Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone; and Tell Me a Dragon.
In Maths we use three main schemes. We follow White Rose Maths, Abacus and Classroom Secrets. In Y4 we work hard on learning our multiplication facts by heart, as we need to know all of the times tables up to 12×12 by the end of Y4.
Our Y4 Science topics are All Living Things, Animals Including Humans, Sound, Electricity and States of Matter.
History topics in Y4 are Roman Britain and Ancient Greece.
What can we discover about Europe? When the land meets the sea; and Why does Italy shake and roar? These are our Geography topics in Y4.
Children in Class 3 will do PE every Monday and Thursday afternoon. Until restrictions to allow children to bring in their PE bags, they can attend school wearing their PE kits on these days.
Children will be set spellings to practise at home every Monday. Their spelling test will also be on a Monday.

Lockdown Time Capsule
Hopefully before the end of term we will bury the time capsule in the school grounds. The capsule is part of a project run by Mark Wilkinson Photography. Photographs Mark has received will be printed and placed in the time capsule which will be buried for ten years. To accompany the photographs we are asking the children to write a letter and place it in a sealed envelope. The letter can be about time in lock down, things children did, how they felt, anything they feel relevant. We do want the children to include the date, their age, their class teacher and their first name. But they must not include surnames, phone numbers or their address.
In 2030 we will dig up the capsule and all contents will form part of a history event for our future CJS children.
