Y4 - Mrs Catlin 2017 - 2018

Mrs Catlin

Hello I’m Mrs Catlin -Year 4 class teacher. 

I have been here at Northway since September 1995! I have had the privilege of teaching so many wonderful children over the years and I remember all their names and faces!  My time at University (John Moores, Liverpool) seems a long time ago now and I studied a BSc (Hons) Child Psychology followed by a P.G.C.E. for teaching ages 3-8 years.

As well as teaching my class I am also responsible for leading Geography throughout the school and promoting Eco issues and outdoor learning. I thoroughly enjoy taking groups of children out for Forest School activities and we’re lucky to have such super, safe grounds to work in all year round. Please look at our Eco and Forest School pages to find out more.

Our class PE days this term will be Tuesdays and Fridays. We will be learning how to play Basketball this term and develop our team skills. We are showing good levels of talent already! The children have asked when they will be going swimming again as they enjoyed it so much in Y3! It will be our turn just before Easter but the children will be informed nearer the time. Please make sure a full PE kit is in school, named of course and that earrings are removed and hair is tied back.

Music during the Autumn term   Gareth from Musical Minds visits Y4 each Thursday afternoon to teach us Samba drumming. The children are fascinated to know that Gareth plays his own drums in a rock band! He's a real musical genius we say! Over the last couple of sessions we have learnt how to follow simple beats and rhythms and work together to create short pieces of music. We have been introduced to 4 different drums, all of which have a different sound. Thursday afternoons are one of the highlights in our week and we feel lucky to have such experiences on top of our already super timetable. Gareth has told us we might be able to perform to our friends and teachers in other classes and even for our parents if we improve at the rate we are doing. We are really looking forward to doing this and it will give us something exciting to aim for.
