Welcome to Lower Key Stage 2! We are very excited to welcome you all back to school.
There's plenty here for you to explore. Please check regulary for updates and important dates for our classes.
We are looking forward to the Autumn term and sharing our exciting learning journey with you.Autumn 1 This half term we are working hard to learn our times tables. In June, our Y4 children will take a times tables check and all children in Years 3 and 4 can practise for this here: TIMES TABLES CHECK You have 5 seconds to answer each question so you need to be quick AND careful! Can you improve your score each time you play? Don't forget to use TT Rockstars and battle your friends and other classes!
In Maths we will be learning all about place value... Use Hit the Button to become experts with our timetables. This is essential for our place value knowledge.
Reading - We read or share texts at least 3 times a day at school. We have a text that we base our English work around and this half term it begins with Griffin Gate for Year 3 and Crowfall for Year 4, both by the amazing Vashti Hardy. Tweet her and see if you get a reply! We alsohave a book that our teachers read to us on a daily basis and we have a guided or shared reading session.
We will continue to work hard to ensure our learning enters our long term memory by recapping and retrieving previously learnt knowledge. Our History and Geography 'We Love Where We Live!' lessons will allow us to recap all about The Beatles and our local area. We will have special visits from local music artists to help us celebrate the incredible music from the North West.
Our children have Break the Mould teaching this term to support our children with their leadership skills. They will be working with the coaches to become mentors on our yard. They will become play leaders by the end of the term and will be used as an example in our phase.
Please ensure that you come into school dressed appropriately - white t-shirt and black shorts or a plain jogging suit.
