Year Three & Four

Welcome to Lower Key Stage Two (Y3 & Y4)

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.

Extra Information & Site Links

All children will have key words to learn on a weekly basis as well as mathematics and literacy/topic themed homework. The children are also expected to read everyday and each time the diary is filled in, the children can move along the reading stars track to gain their first 100 reads award. As we all know, reading is the key to learning.
