Years 3 & 4
“All things are possible”
In Year 3 and 4, we 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. We look forward to all the amazing things we will learn this year together.
Our PE lessons are currently on Monday’s with Mr Gibson and Thursday’s.
Please come to school in full PE kit both days.
Each Monday a new quiz will be launched on Teams, to be completed for the following Monday.
Spellings for the half term are on Teams, your child will also be given a list on a Monday and will be tested on the following Monday.
