When you step into Year 3 you are always greeted with a smile and a friendly atmosphere where Huttoft's school values shine through every day. The children take pride in their classroom and their learning is evident through the displays on the walls.
Miss Mullen and Mrs Crouch are the teachers in Year 3. Miss Mullen teaches us on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Mrs Crouch on Thursdays and Fridays. Mrs Willows is our Teaching Assistant.
It is the first year in the Juniors and although many things are the same there are a couple of new changes - learning French as a Modern Foreign Language and doing Athletics as part of the PE Curriculum.
In Maths we use the White Rose scheme to develop our knowledge and understanding of Place Value (Hundreds, Tens and Ones), Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Division (using the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables), Money, Statistics, Measurement (Length, Perimeter, Mass and Capacity), Fractions, Time and Shape. We get ample opportunity to recap previous learning, learn new skills, practise them often using practical resources like Base Ten and Numicon first before applying our new knowledge to help us solve problems and show our understanding in various reasoning questions.
Literacy and the Foundation Subjects:
We follow the Cornerstones Curriculum like the rest of the school which covers Literacy, Science, History, Geography, Computing, Art, DT and Music which are linked together through termly projects allowing us to learn and embed key concepts over a 6 week period.
Our projects for 2020/21 are: Urban Pioneers, Rocks, Relics and Rumbles, Tribal Tales, Mighty Metals, Gods and Mortals and Predator.
Each project begins with a Memorable Experience which really gets the children interested and involved in the projects from day one!
French, PE, RE and PSHE follow separate schemes and are taught weekly. All 6 world religions are taught in RE and in PSHE an awareness of mental health and emotional wellbeing is covered as well as the importance of establishing good physical health. Children learn that families are all different and what good friendships should be like as well as how to keep safe in different scenarios. In French we learn vocabulary for basic greetings, numbers, animals, body parts and family members. PE takes place twice a week indoors and out to cover aspects of Dance, Gymnastics, Games and Athletics across the year.
