Year Three & Four

KS2 – Year Three & Four

A broad and balanced curriculum provides children with the skills, knowledge and understanding they need to develop into well-rounded, informed individuals.

Welcome to Y3/4

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.

The new term of 2020 will allow the children to experience our new ‘Dragonology’ topic, where the children will learn about the different types of dragons from around the world and design their own dragon, Chinese New Year, St George and the dragon, Dragonese language and dragon art and design work.

In English, the children will create an information text about the anatomy and physiology of a dragon, a retell of the story of The Dragon Snatcher, instructions, letter writing to the curator of the Natural History Museum.

In Maths the children will learn their 3,4, 6, 8, 9, 7, 11 and 12 times tables, multiply 3 numbers together, learn the formal written multiplication and division process for multiplying 2 and 3 digit numbers by a single digit. They will then move onto measurements.

Our Science unit is ‘Animals including humans’ here the children will learn about nutrition, the different skeletons, the function and importance of the skeleton, naming human bones and why muscles are important.

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.
