Welcome to the Hedgehogs' Class Page! 


Welcome to the Hedgehogs' class page. We are heading into Autumn half term 1 and are setting off to the coast:


UK Coasts

Would you rather live on an island or in a city and why?

In Y3/4 Hedgehogs, that is what we plan to find out this half term as we explore the islands and coastlines around the UK. We will be exploring life on Mull and life in Portsmouth.

Maths: In maths, we will be looking at place value and number before moving onto the four operations.

Science: In science, we will be looking at animals including humans.



Year 3/4 Staff:

We are very lucky to have our amazing staff team in Y3/4 to support the children and help them grow:

Mrs Stephenson: Class teacher.

Mrs Croft: Class teacher. 

Mrs K and Miss Ollerton: We are really lucky to have a fantastic team of Teaching Assistants who will be supporting and leading children in their learning. 




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

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:

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. 


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.
