Welcome to Chameleon Class - Year 4
Hello! I am Ms Bradshaw and I am thrilled to join St Benedict’s School this year! I grew up in and around Street and know Glastonbury well; my sister even attended St Benedict’s many years ago!
I really enjoy teaching all subjects; particularly everything creative and I have a great love of the outdoors and really enjoy taking our learning outside.
My great passion is in computing, I have taught computing for many years, even before I trained as a teacher, so you will often see us thinking about computing and maths in everyday life, thinking about those magic real moments where education comes to life. Our Wonder Wall in the classroom has sparked some interesting thoughts and ideas to explore and investigate.
Miss Branton assists us in class and as a fantastic artist and organiser is helping individual children within the class, running intervention groups as well as being there to listen to any problems the children have.
This year we will be continuing our journey through history from the Iron Age to the Normans! You can rely on the staff to create some exciting, hands on activities to explore and understand our past.
We also have a strong focus on the environment, through science and geography, and will get outside and hopefully out and about to investigate the area we live in and our natural world
In English, we are really focusing on developing our reading skills. We love to read and will be sharing a wide range of texts and tales as we develop our literacy skills.
In Maths there is a big focus on learning our times tables as year 4 children take a statutory times table test in the summer. Any help with practising and becoming fluent is much appreciated as knowledge of times tables is vital.
P.E is on Thursdays and Fridays, so remember to wear your P.E kit those days as well as bringing weather appropriate clothing.
I am always available to contact on Class Dojo, so feel free to message me there and I will try to reply as quickly as possible.
Finally, thank you for the warm welcome I have already received from those parents I have spoken to at the end of the day.
