TEAMGA (Year 3/4)

TEAMGA (ID 1047)

 Welcome to Lower KS2! We are very excited about having Year 3 and 4 working in partnership to help coach each other, challenge each other and have a lot of fun in our learning! For the Year 3 children, this is a very important year as it is their leap into KS2 and they will gain lots more independence and skills they can build on from KS1. For our Year 4 children, we will be working on strengthening those skills from last year and diving deeper into all areas of our curriculum and progressing our skills. 

 In Maths, Year 3 and 4 will be looking at the same topics throughout the year but with slight differentiation. Year 4 is focused particularly on times tables with a national times tables test at the end of the year. All children will have plenty of opportunity to focus on their fundamental maths skills and rapid recall of their times tables facts. In English, The children will be exposed to lots of genres of writing across the year and they will be working on writing creatively, and on spelling and grammar skills. 

 Science is a really exciting topic in lower Key Stage 2, and the children will be working with experiments in order to find out more about the world around them. They will work on key scientific skills such as organising, recording, observing, testing, enquiring and investigating. History and Geography is taught alternatively every half term and we have some fascinating topics that the children are going to be learning about, ranging from Mountain Explorers, to Vikings, Royals and International Travellers! 

 As a proud Church of England school, RE will be consistently focused upon each week, with the children taking part in a daily worship and weekly RE lessons.

We are really excited for a positive year of learning, playing and helping each other be the best we can be!
