Welcome to the LKS2 (Hedgehogs) Class Page!

 

We are looking forward to all the exciting oppurtunities, trips and learning of our connected curriculum this Autumn Term. 

Please see the downloadable mindmap and knowledge organiser at the bottom of this page - 'Bright Ideas - Invaders and Inventions.'

Please follow the 'hedgehogs' Class on our dedicated Twitter page: @hedgehogs_ stoswalds

We are very excited about getting to know your your wonderful children and all the exciting learning opportunities ahead.

 

Year 3/4 Staff:

We are very lucky in the Y3/4 class to have the following staff to support and help the children in their learning:

Miss Boulton and Mrs Agnew: Y3/4 Teachers.

Mrs Lycett, Mrs Chapman, Mrs Shaw and Miss Holdsworth We are really lucky to have a fantastic team of Teaching Assistants who will be supporting and leading children in their learning. 

Mr Dooley: Teaching PE to the class on a Tuesday morning and Wednesday afternoon. 

Mr Birch: We are fortunate to have Mr Birch on a Friday afternoon to teach P Brass instruments to the Year 3/4 class. 

Information:

P.E Sessions:

During the Winter months children will need to make sure they have the right clothes and footwear for all weather. It is likely they will still be outside in the Autumn term where possible and will need to bring appropriate footwear. PE kits are to be brought into school on a Monday and left in class for the whole week in case PE sessions change due to the weather. PE kit is red polo shirt, blue / black shorts, socks and trainers. Warm tracksuit / sweatshirt is allowed for the cold weather conditions. 

Tuesday AM:

With Mr Dooley and include a variety of different team sports. 

Wednesday PM:

With Mr Dooley - A mixture of team sports and indoor and outdoor games. 

Music:

We are lucky as we will  be having weekly ‘P type’ (Plastic) brass lessons which will  take place on a Friday afternoon. It is essential that the children bring in their instruments every week on a Friday and practise their brass instruments at home every week ready for the next session.

Homework Explained!

Creative Learning Projects:

These will be ‘creative project’ based on topic work taking place in the classroom and will be handed out every two / three weeks to give children enough time to do a good job! These missions are aimed to give children more time and more say in how they present their homework. Each child will be given a personalised Learning log that will include their mission brief, options on how they can present their homework and the date it is due in. We will NOT be writing corrections or comments over their homework in order not to ruin their beautifully presented work, however, will write comments and award merits on a ‘mission de-brief sheet’ in the back of their learning log.

In our experience, children seem to prefer these types of homework and henceforth produce some high quality work.

English Homework:

SPAG based homework based on what they have been learning in class. This will involve a focus on either punctuation or grammar sentence / word level activities.

Weekly Spellings:

10 spellings handed out weekly on a Monday and expected back in on the following Monday showing they have practised at least 4 times during the week. These spellings will be tested on a Monday.

 

Maths Homework:

This will also be handed out on a Friday and expected in the following Wednesday. This might be a worksheet type activity or problem-solving question related to maths work they have been undertaking in class. In addition, the children in Y3/4 class are expected to be regularly logging onto Mathletics and ideally achieving 1,000 points per week – this equates to roughly 30 minutes work.

Times Tables:

Your child will be given a login for Times Tables Rockstars, an exciting online tool to help them to learn times tables. Your child will have a weekly timestables test on a Friday and we thank you in advance for your support in helping them to prepare for this. 

Reading:

Your child has a school reading book which is either a colour banded book or a free reading book. They also have an individual reading journal. Please can we encouage as much reading at home as possible and a comment written from you when you can. Thank you.
