Years 3 & 4
“All things are possible”
In Year 3 and 4, we aim to support a smooth transition from Key Stage 1 into Key stage 2 by engaging children in lessons and experiences within school. We build on previous knowledge in a safe and secure environment, learning to be courageous advocates, grow in confidence and start to understand the importance of education and its impact on their own lives now and in their future success.
Our PE lessons are currently on Wednesday afternoons with Commando Jo’s and Thursday’s with Mr Gibson.
Please come to school in full PE kit both days.
