Year 3 & Year 4

Holly Primary School-64

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.

Spring Two Overview

Welcome back after the February break. This term we will be working on a new topic of artists and playwrights.  Within this topic the children will be learning about various artists, create biographies and portraits based on different artist styles.

This term our English work will be based on the book ‘Why the crayons quit’.  Within this topic we will be focusing on different reading skills, planning and creating newspaper reports. In addition, we will be learning about playwrights including William Shakespeare. The children will read Romeo and Juliet and create their own play script based on the story.

In science our unit is states of matter where the children will learn: the characteristics of solids, liquids and gases, how to classify items, how the water cycle works, use a thermometer and explain melting points and what evaporation is.

Thank you for your support – Team 3/4
