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 One Overview

Welcome back after the festive break – we hope you have had a great Christmas!  This term we are starting our new topic of ‘Toy Story.’ With a design technology and computing focus, we’ll be making moving monsters, creating stop frame animations and looking at the school network and cloud-based systems.

In English we will be using Toy Story as the stimulus for our work. The children will be creating a diary based on a section from the movie, a letter of application to NASA and a narrative.

In Science, our topic is sound, and the children will learn: how sound is produced, how it travels, how the human ear works. The children will conduct an experiment with a string telephone and understand what sound waves and vibrations are. To complete the unit, the children will learn about volume, pitch and which materials absorb sound effectively.
