Years 3 & 4

“All things are possible”

Luke 18:27

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.

PE Lessons

Our PE lessons are usually on Monday and Wednesday afternoons. However, these days may change to accommodate other events so your child should have their PE kit in school for a full week.

Homework

Each week, your child will be given the following homework:

  • One piece of English or Maths (alternate weeks)
  • A reading book
  • Spellings (tested on Wednesdays)
  • A choice of activities from this half term’s Topic Grid (optional)
