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.
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: Cultural Heritage, The Mesozoic Era, A local study: Portman Road, Waters of Plastic.
