Welcome to Lower Key Stage Two

In our key stage the children are aged between 7 and 9. From September we will have three mixed Year 3 and Year 4 classes. Each class will be lead by a class teacher with support staff shared across the phase to support the needs of children. This means that support staff will work in more than one of the classes with a range of children. 

Start and finish times for each class. Please can we remind you to bring and collect your child at their allocated time to avoid a build up and adults and children on the school grounds.

Please support us in school by listening to your child read at least four times a week and record this in their reading log. Reading logs can be brought into school from a Wednesday to be stamped in class. Once a child has 4 stamps they will receive a sticker on the reading chart and after 10 stickers each child will receive a prize.


Please help your children practise any spellings sent home these can also be practised using spelling shed. Find below a list of year 3 and 4 statutory spellings that children are expected to know.

Maths Resources

In school we use White Rose Maths planning to support our teaching and learning. Below is a link to a series of lessons for each year group.

In June the year 4 children will complete a timetable test. At the end of year 4 the national curriculum states that children should know all of the multiplication facts up to 12 x 12. Children all have a login to practise these using Timetable Rockstars. The format of the test is very similar to the sound check area on Rockstars. Children in year 4 will be tested weekly using this to ensure they are familiar with the test format and help them to continue to improve their scores.
