Welcome to Hedgehogs!
Miss Simmons and Mrs Hibberd would like to welcome you to Hedgehogs class page!
In Year 3 a wide range of books and genres of writing will be covered. As a year we will have a look at features of different text styles, as well as learning to write in a particular style of writing. We will also focus on spelling, punctuation and grammar and making sure it is fluid in the children's writing. Reading will also be a core focus, looking at fluency of reading and decoding skills as well as emphasis and pronunciation. In Year 3 our common exception words are very important as well!
In Year 3 we will focus on maths topics learnt in Year 2, ensuring progression, as well as introducing new topics. The range of topics covered are: place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, decimals, measure, time, perimeter and area, statistics, shape, and problem solving. There is also a huge focus on times tables and properties of number, allowing children to understand and recognise patterns in number. This year we focus on our 3, 4 and 8 times tables. At Midfield we have adopted a maths mastery approach which ensures that children have mastered the topic before moving onto a new one. This is challenging but effective and allows secure knowledge of the topic being learnt.
At Midfield we embrace the outdoors and love to get outside. We are lucky enough to have Forest School, Outdoor Adventure and Eco garden lessons. Not only that, but we like to get outdoors in as many lessons as possible. We brave the wet and the cold to explore the outdoors to find interesting ways to learn!
