Here we begin the first year (Year 3) and second year (Year 4) of Lower Key Stage Two.


We always look for the positives in your child’s learning as well as the choices they make with their behaviour. We are keen to turn a negative into positive as a way of moving forward.


At this stage of your child’s education, we encourage children to develop their independence. This can range from organising their own equipment to tying shoe laces! We feel this is an important skill for them to develop for later in life.

Kindness and empathy

We promote kindness towards each other and to be respectful towards other people’s opinions and beliefs. We also ensure equity for all, regardless of their needs and backgrounds.

School day

Every morning we teach an English and maths. In the afternoons, we teach science, history, geography, art, DT, RE as well French and music, which are taught specialist teachers. We believe it is important to offer a board and balanced curriculum, whereby everyone’s strengths can be recognised. We focus our learning on many topics throughout the year. We offer exciting trips and arrange for interesting visitors to come in. This is so the children gain first hand experience of real life scenarios.

Topics for this academic year: Battles involving Britain, Farming, Physical Geography & Natural Disaters.

We base our English lessons on particular books, these are just some of them:

Year 3 will be using the following books and more.

In the Ocean Phase we love maths. To understand how maths learning progresses in year 3 & 4, visit the White Rose website to see details of questions and concepts. https://whiterosemaths.com/for-parents/

But it is not just English and maths. These images represent a variety of subjects and topics we discover in the Ocean Phase.
