Welcome to Year 3 & Year 4 (Lower Key Stage Two)
Children have now made the transition from Key Stage One and continue with a new, and equally engaging, curriculum. We encourage greater independence and individual responsibility, children go on their first overnight residential, they are able to join the school choir, and our expectations of good behaviour and high standards of work are made clear from September. We have three classes in Lower Key Stage Two and always welcome parents popping in. Our Yammer feed below will give you regular updates about life in our team.

Overview – Summer Two
Welcome back. Over the half term, the children are going to be extremely busy. We have the Summer show to prepare for.
Within English, the children will be learning about Peter Pan to link with our history topic. They will use their prediction skills, focus on sentence structure and descriptive language and eventually create a narrative based on the Peter Pan story. We will also be creating non-fiction pieces of writing and finish with poetry.
Within maths we will be working on our mental calculations, revisit telling the time with 12 and 24-hour clocks, continue focussing on times tables, use factor pairs and commutativity law, along with various problem solving and reasoning activities.
During our history topic of ‘What would you have done after school 100 years ago?’ the children will be learning about what activities were available for children, they will research other past times activities, comparing a sport’s team and create a silent movie.
Homework will be handed out on Fridays and returned to school on Wednesdays which will include spellings, maths and an additional English piece. Please make sure your child’s PE kit is in school at all times. As reading is extremely important in children’s education, we expect them to read on a daily basis which will contribute to their 100 reads over the course of the year. Thank you for your support – Team 3/4
