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 – Autumn Two
Welcome back after the half term break. This is going to be a busy term for the children. Along with their lessons, they will be rehearsing for their Christmas production.
In English, we will be learning about how to create newspaper reports, the features of a newspaper, Greek myths and creating our very own. We will be focussing on sentence structure, using homophones, prefixes and suffixes and learning how paragraphs are used to structure writing.
In maths, we will be learning about what a fraction is, equivalent fractions, how to add and subtract fractions, finding fractions of numbers and shapes and their properties,
Our new history topic is ‘Has Greece always been in the news?’ Within this term, we will be learning about Alex the Great, the Ancient Greek Gods, the Olympic Games, researching and tasting Mediterranean foods and designing a Greek vase. In Science we will be participating in various investigations.
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.
