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 One 2018
Welcome back, we hope you’ve all had a great Easter break. We have another busy term lined up for everyone. During Maths the children will be learning: how to use negative numbers, to use division and remainders, to use fractions and equivalent fractions, decimal numbers and rounding numbers, converting measurements and finding perimeter and area.
During English, we will be learning what a travel brochure is and its features, what persuasive writing is and how to create a persuasive piece of writing which will be based on the Mediterranean. The children will create a play script which will be recorded linking to their topic work. We will continue to work on prefixes and suffixes, improve vocabulary, using homophones and sentence structure.
During our Geography topic about the Mediterranean, we will be learning about countries that are in the Mediterranean, understand the climate, historic landmarks and artists of the area.
During Science about light, we will be learning how: light and darkness are created, how reflection works, why it is important to be protected from the sun and which items are classified as opaque, transparent and translucent.
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
