Hello everyone and welcome to Class 3. The class teacher is Miss Beesley-Peck and there are 31 pupils in this class. Mrs Shield and Miss Waters support our class, and Mr Moore teaches on a Wednesday.
My name is Miss Beesley-Peck and this will be my first year at CJS having only recently moved to the area. I was a private tutor in Austria, before becoming a teacher in Surrey where I taught at both Infant and Junior schools. I love teaching Year 4 and am really looking forward to getting to know everyone in the class!
In the evenings, I enjoy playing Badminton and, as the nights draw in, curling up by the fire with a good book. I also love to cross stitch and have recently taken up bobbin lace making.
This half term we will be using film as our inspiration for our writing and will focus on writing non-chronological reports. To help us develop our writing further we will be recapping and learning some new grammar.
We will continue to use Spelling Shed (which can be accessed from home) to help us learn our weekly spellings, Accelerated Reader to improve our reading and VIPERS to develop our comprehension skills.
We follow White Rose Maths, which builds upon prior learning and looks to develop a range of skills in Mathematics. This half term we will focus on column subtraction as well as progressing onto multiplication and division.
We will continue to use Times Tables Rock Stars (which can be accessed from home) to develop our times tables knowledge.
