Year 3 & 4
Key Stage 2 is broken down into Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2. Lower Key Stage 2 (Years 3 and 4) are streamed by ability in Literacy and Maths. We also operate a ‘Nurture Group’ for some periods of the day to support those children who need to be taught in smaller groups or need a personalised curriculum.
Phonics is continued for those children that require it, but once they can decode, they move onto our Accelerated Reader Scheme. Children read at home and at School and then complete a quiz to test their understanding. Timestable Rockstar is a fierce competition in Y3/4 where children are competing constantly to improve their score.
In Year 4 children complete a Multiplication Check in the Summer Term.
Children in Y3 and 4 are also offered a one night residential to prepare them for Y5/6 residentials.
All children in Y3 and Y4 have a 1-1 iPad to help support them with their learning.
Children all get the opportunity for Enrichment which take place on a weekly basis. Our PSHE Scheme is complimented through our assembly programme which teaches our children about British Values, global citizenship and the protected characteristics through stories. This is then then discussed in detail in the classroom at an appropriate level specific to their year group.
