Welcome to Lower Key Stage 2
Welcome to the Yr3/4 Team in Lower Key Stage 2!
For the academic year 2017/18 there are 3 classes within this lower key stage. Each class is a mix of Y3 and Y4 children. All 3 classes have a mix of boys, girls, age and ability.
The teaching team comprises:
Mrs Lee Class Teacher 3/4L Y3/4 Progress Leader
whole school PSHE leader
member of the whole School science team
Mrs Kirby Class Teacher 3/4K
Miss Bashford Class Teacher 3/4B
Mrs Tolland Teaching Assistant
Other adults who may work with your child
Sometimes, children are supported by adults other than those who are based solely within the Y3/4 Team. This might include: Mrs Thornhill (Higher Level Teaching Assistant), Mrs Morris (Social Inclusion Co-ordinator) and Ms O’Loghlen (Family Support Adviser)
The Y3/4 Curriculum
You will regularly receive a Curriculum Newsletter that informs you of the learning that will be taking place over the next half term, the LCC focus, PE arrangements and trips etc. It will also remind you of arrangements for Home Learning. At some point in the year, the children will take part in swimming lessons over a 5 week period; they travel by coach to the pool at Ely. Music lessons are taught every week throughout Years 3 and 4 by the Cambridgeshire Music Service; children will follow the National Curriculum for Music and will also learn to play the recorder. Year 4 children will have the opportunity to take part in a residential visit.
What to do if you have any queries or concerns
In the first instance, please see your child’s class teacher-you can catch them at the end of each school day when they come onto the playground with their class; if this is not possible then pop into, or ring, the School Office and leave a message- the class teacher will contact you as soon as they are able.
