Lower Key Stage 2

Welcome to years 3 and 4!

Welcome to KS2! We are children aged 7-9. There are three classes:  year 3, 3/4  and year 4. In the mornings we have reading workshop, where some of us read to a teacher in a group. Other groups read,  practice grammar and punctuation or work on maths activities. We also have a computer programme that helps us to practise the parts of maths that we find tricky. Every month, the children who have made the most progress on Maths Whizz get certificates. After reading workshop we have English or Maths.In the afternoons we have lessons with our class. We have different Topics and do lots of exciting things. All children in year 3 and 4 follow a broad and balanced curriculum. We provide our children with new and exciting opportunities to widen their learning experiences, capturing their interests and making each day challenging and engaging. Teaching the basic skills of English and Mathematics is our first priority. We encourage pupils to use these skills independently in all aspects of school life. In addition to the core subjects we offer a rich and varied curriculum around the following subjects: RE, ICT, Geography, History, Physical Education, Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education, French, The Arts – Music, Art and Design Technology and Science. These subjects are taught individually, or as part of The Creative Curriculum. Pupils have many opportunities to develop higher order and thinking and questioning skills. The children are encouraged to work individually, in a group or as a whole class. Co-operative teaching and learning styles are used. We believe that a good attitude to work and consistent effort are important for children to achieve their targets. We value the importance of parents’ involvement and the impact it has on their child’s learning.


In Year 3/4 we get the following homework: 1. We need to read at home at least 5 times per week. An adult needs to sign our homework planner to show that we have been reading at home. 2. We will have spellings to learn every week. These come home on a Friday and are tested the following Friday. We also practice our spellings in class during the week. 3. We get alternate English or Maths homework on a Friday. This is then due in the following Friday.
