Welcome to Beech Class
Key Stage: Two
Teacher: Mrs Justine Hamer
Teaching Assistants: Miss Joni Mansell
Mrs Hamer, class teacher
Mrs Hamer has been a teacher for over 20 years, having worked at a number of primary schools on the island and the mainland. Since joining Northwood Primary in 2011, she has worked across both key stages and is now enjoying the challenges that Year 3 has to offer
Mrs Hamer Says:
“There is never a dull moment in class! Every day offers new challenges and the children’s enthusiasm for their learning makes it all worthwhile. There is nothing more satisfying than witnessing that “Light Bulb” moment when a child understands a new concept.”
Beech Team is a happy, energetic and exciting year 4 class. Our learning is active, wherever possible, and the children have the opportunity to develop their skills through creative and stimulating activities. Our aim is to challenge the children at every opportunity and we are strong promotors of the “Growth Mindset”. We encourage our students to have the confidence to share their ideas, and we are never afraid of making mistakes; in fact we celebrate them as a means to helping us learn. A typical day will see the students consolidating and developing their skills in Literacy and Numeracy, each new skill is broken into little steps allowing every child to succeed and achieve their potential.
We believe that “Challenge” is one of the most important words in our class vocabulary and will always push ourselves to be the best that we can be. During the Autumn term, we will be learning about “The Water Cycle”, the Spring term will focus on “Explorers” and our Summer Term learning will center around “The Romans”.
We would like to introduce you to the staff who work in the Class.
Miss Joni Mansell
