Hedgehog Class Y3

Welcome to the Summer term in Hedgehog Class

Our Class Stars of the Week - Well done all of you for being such great role models!

We had a fantastic Iron Age Day making roundhouses and shields and learning how to barter with other tribes.

As it's nearly Easter, we created mindfulness colouring Easter bunnies. The best boy and girl each won a prize. Alice and William both did a super job - well done!

Our class superstars this week

We've been learning about the Bronze Age and discovered that they were the very first people to use fleece from sheep to make clothing and blankets. We had a go at spinning fleece into wool. Thanks Callum for bringing the fleece in.

This week we have learnt how to use Jamboard to share ideas, found out about some fascinating creatures like the Axolotl and the Cabybara and have used tally charts and bar charts to display all our class favourites. We had a great joke competition for Comic Relief Red Nose Day and were very pleased to be able to celebrate our class superstars who have worked hard, presented work beautifully and read many many books this year. Well done all of you!

Our class’s favourite joke...

It's been fantastic to have all our Hedgehogs back to school after their winter hibernation!


This week, we have been creating time capsules, working together as a team to get back into the learning zone and catching up with each others' news.


Our class stars this week have worked so hard and have set the pace for the rest of us. We are so pleased to be able to celebrate their hard work.

A number of children have asked whether they can do quizzes on their Accelerated Reader books at home. The good news is, that this is now possible. Copy and paste the following link to take a quiz:

Then, ask your parents to save it onto your desktop so that it's easy to find next time.


Please remember to practice your Year 3 spellings each day and your times tables.

Please remember to read each day. If you have run out of books at home, please look on Oxford Reading Buddy. 

Hi Hedgehog class


Hopefully I have set up a new meeting on Teams to check in with you all. This is mainly a test to see if Mrs Lawrie has got it right! The meeting will start at 2.30pm and the link can be found on the post section of the channel.


Don't worry if you can't sign in at this time or even if you have problems. This is the whole point of the meeting to see how we all get on.  More information will be available about live check in times once the teachers' debug any issues.


The meeting should last around 15 minutes. (Ignore the half hour slot given.)


Look forward to seeing some of you.


Mrs Lawrie

We have been learning about the importance of protecting our eyes from strong sunlight. We decided to design sunglasses that help block some light. Do we look cool?

Our class superstars this week are kind and caring members of our team and can always be relied upon to be doing the right thing.

We have a handwriting superstar who always produces super work!

We have had a mighty mathematician in our class with a determination to make excellent progress!

We have been learning about the special food Jewish people make as part of their Hanukkah celebrations. It was fun making it and trying out new flavours and textures.

Our class superstars this week are two enthusiastic learners.

We enjoyed a calming yoga session this week.

Another pair of super stars with a fabulous attitude to learning!

Today, we joined in with Children in Need by participating in Joe Wicks’ 24 hour workout and then running laps in our whole school challenge. Each dot on our hands was one lap. It was fun but tiring!

We are learning about forces and magnets in Science. Today we investigated friction.

We are so pleased to be able to celebrate the fantastic role models we have in our class. What a super start to Year 3!

We have a maths superstar to celebrate this week. Well done William!

Wow, we have had some fantastic writers in our class this week. Well done both of you for well-deserved certificates.

We enjoyed pressing apples to make apple juice and making willow wands today.

What wonderful role models we have in our class! Two more superstars with a great attitude to learning. Well done both of you.

We have been learning about the Somerset Levels and why it floods. We had a go at creating our own towns and flood defences. Not all our houses survived the flood undamaged!

We were very lucky this week to receive a gift all the way from Mrs Lawrie's mummy in Ireland. Our very own, very special painting of Sidney the Hedgehog.

Our featured author this half term is Anthony Browne. We have enjoyed reading his books together.

What fabulous role models we have in Hedgehog Class!

We are reading a book in English called Flood. This afternoon, Year 3 evacuated their classrooms before the storm arrived. We realised a flood could be a pretty exciting but scary experience!

We’re very proud to introduce our first class stars. What a great start to the year you’ve made - well done!

We had fun working together to create the first letters of our names. Can you guess the letters!
