Lower Key Stage 2

Class 4 (Year 3/4) - Miss Winstanley

Class 5 (Year 3/4) - Mr Fisher (Key Stage 2 Leader)

On this page you will find all the information you or your child will need to help them keep up to date with Year 3 and 4 news.

Should you have any problems or concerns regarding your child, or would generally like more information, then please don’t hesitate to come in and see your child’s teacher.

We are very fortunate that we have some super support staff who work alongside our teachers in Lower Key Stage 2. 

Mrs Hamilton - TA 

Mrs Franks - 1:1 TA 

Mrs Brown - HLTA (PPA cover and Management cover) 

Mrs Fisher - HLTA (PPA cover and Management cover) 

One of our key aims in Lower Key Stage 2 is to help the children to develop greater levels of responsibility and independence. Children should enter the school building on their own and get themselves organised independently - this includes making sure they have all of their equipment for the day, such as reading books, PE kits, spelling sheets etc.

For Big Maths, children also need to continue to practice their ‘learn-it’ facts and work on the quick recall of these.

Reading

We request that children read at home at least 3 times a week and children have a reading record book to keep a count of these reads. Children are rewarded within school for completing their reading homework at home. Please click the books below for some questions you can ask your child while listening to them read. Answering questions on a text is a key skill required at the end of Upper Key Stage 2, please encourage your child to practise this at home.
