Eagles Class Teacher
I am extremely excited about teaching in Year 4 again this year. We have a wonderful array of Power of Reading books which facilitate fun and engaging lessons. The topics we cover are brilliant to teach as they always captivate the children’s imagination. We will start the year by making our classroom immersive, in line with our first book - WILD. We will then begin exploring Ancient Egypt and move through the Arctic, to mythical Icelandic lands! As a Year 4 teacher, I will ensure children develop the process of independent thinking, learning and decision making- taking responsibility for how, when and where they learn best.

Having spent most of my career teaching older children, it has been a breath of fresh air coming into Year 4. The sheer level of enthusiasm and creativity is contagious. We are lucky to have a magnificent array of books in Year 4: Tutankharmun's story, The Ice Bear and Wild to name a few. They all take us on wonderful journeys into different cultures and are gateways into exciting new worlds. Being able to combine English, Art, DT, Geography and History in completely immersive environments means that Year 4 is a truly inspirational year. It is also a pleasure seeing our children developing and refining their independent learning skills to be the very best learners that they can be.
Hawks Class Teacher (Weds-Fri)
After being off on maternity leave, it is so lovely to come back to Year 4 this year. It's a big change to be teaching part time but I now have a gorgeous little toddler at home to take care of on my days off. The books we base our learning on in Year 4 are so exciting and moving. I love seeing the children inspired to ask questions and have ownership of their learning too. My personal favourites being 'The Ice Bear' and 'Croc and Bird'. Science and History are by far my favourite subjects to teach which we link to our power of reading books too. The children are often enthusiastic about these subjects and I love watching their learning unfold and curiosity grow though hands on, practical exploration.
In Year 4, our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Trett and Mrs Hearsum.
Mrs Eldred will be running Forest School sessions with Year 4 throughout the school year. Each child in Year 4 will receive at least half a terms Forest school sessions on a Friday afternoon.
When your child will be having these sessions will be communicated to you via DOJO.
