Miss Mullen is the Year 3 class teacher and Ms Stapleton and Miss Whitham are our Teaching Assistants. We have other adults who come and work with us throughout the week too.
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 and by their enthusiasm when talking to them.
It is the first year in the Juniors and although many things are the same there are a couple of new changes - such as, 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.
English, Science and the Foundation Subjects:
We follow the National Curriculum through Cornerstones Projects which cover English, Science, History, Geography, Art and DT which are linked together through termly projects (listed below) allowing us to learn and embed key concepts over several weeks. Computing, RE, PSHE, Music, MFL (French) and PE are all covered through separate schemes with weekly lessons and more details of what is covered can be found on our Curriculum Sheets. We also have daily Mindfulness and Daily Mile sessions which along with our classroom culture ensures that an awareness of good mental health and emotional wellbeing is established as well as the importance of establishing good physical health.
Our projects for 2022/23 are:
Autumn Term - Through the Ages
Spring Term - Rocks, Relics and Rumbles
Summer Term - Emperors and Empires
Each project begins with a Memorable Experience which really gets the children interested and involved in the projects from day one!
