Hi, I am Miss Thompson, I have worked at Consett Junior School for 8 years. I started as a teaching assistant; I enjoyed it that much I decided to train to be a teacher. I love to sing, and getting involved in anything crafty, especially if it means getting messy! I spend most my spare time with my family and friends, going on adventures in our VW camper with my dog Lee.
I hope your excited for a very magical year in y4! We start by visiting exciting worlds in Lock and Key House, then we help a little lonely dragon on the run up to Christmas. After Christmas we enter the wizarding world of Harry Potter and discover some very interesting magical creatures. Finally we discover the secrets about the monsters living under your bed! Throughout all this excitement we will be practicing our literacy skills and having a weekly spelling test on a Friday morning.
We love times tables in Y4 and practice these dilligently throughout the year. We also take our mathematical skills to the next level – working on place value, column addition and subtraction, division and multiplication. We also hone in our reasoning and problem solving skills on a daily basis.
