Welcome to Lower Key Stage 2!
(Years 3 & 4)
Year 3 - Maple Class Year 3 & 4 - Silver Birch Class Year 4 - Willow Class
Summer Term 1 - Adventure & Explore!
Welcome back to school for an exciting summer term! Our whole school theme this half term is ‘Adventure & Explore!’. We have already starting exploring our new novel ‘The Highland Falcon Thief’ which is part of the Adventures on Trains series. It promises to bring excitement as well as adventure to our learning as we follow the main characters, Hal and Lenny, on their bid to uncover a jewel thief on board the Highland Falcon.
For our three Lower Key Stage 2 classes (Maple, Silver Birch & Willow), the theme is driven by our history curriculum.
As historians, we will be learning about the start of the first railways and the impact of the steam train. We will look at how transport changed in the 18th century and the effect that that had on in industry in Britain.
Our planned Art lessons also have a railway theme as the children study the artist L.S Lowry and re-create his painting ‘The Railway Platform’.
Please read our curriculum newsletter letter below for more information and keep looking out for photographs of our learning on our class page on the school website!
Years 3 & 4 set sail on an epic adventure during week 4. With their tickets in hand and their finest outfits, they boarded the Titanic for what was billed to be a journey of a lifetime.
