Welcome to the Hedgehogs' Class Page! 

                    

Welcome to the Hedgehogs' class page. It is a brand new year, in a new classroom with a new teacher and amazing TAs.

This term we are heading back in time with a history topic exploring questions and answers about the Stone Age:

Questions and Aswers about the Stone Age

Have you ever wondered why the Stone Age was called the Stone Age?

In Y3/4 Hedgehogs, that is what we plan to find out this term as we explore what life was like during the Stone Age and Iron Age.

We will be trying to asnwer this question through our history, geography, art and DT lessons. We will be developing our knowledge of the Stone Age and how different life was back then. We will be researching the lives of the first hunter gatherers and why it is hard to gain lots of knowledge about this point of prehistory.

Please see downloads below to download this term's topic map and knowledge organiser. 

English: This term, we will be exploring diary entries using 'Stone Age Boy' before moving onto poetry.

Maths: In maths, we will be looking at number and place value. We will be exploring the value of each digit.

Science: In science, we will be looking at the properties of rocks and how fossils are formed. We will then be moving onto sound.

 

Year 3/4 Staff:

We are very lucky to have a brand new staff team working in Y3/4 to support the children help them grow:

Mrs Croft: Class teacher. 

Mrs Hislop, Mrs Lawes and Mrs Stephenson: We are really lucky to have a fantastic team of Teaching Assistants who will be supporting and leading children in their learning. 

Mr Barton: The fantastic Mr Barton will be back leading PE sessions on a Tuesday afternoon.

 

Information:

P.E Sessions:

For the Autumn term, we ask that children can please come to school in their P.E. kits on P.E. days, which are on  Mondays and Tuesdays. 

 

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 half term 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.

Weekly Spellings:

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

 

Maths Homework:

This will be handed out on a Friday and expected in on the following Friday. 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 Rock stars, an exciting online tool to help them to learn times tables. Your child will have a weekly times tables 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 encourage as much reading at home as possible and a comment written from you when you can. Thank you.
