‘Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.’ – Harriet Tubman

Hello and welcome to Lower Key Stage 2.

This year your children will be in one of three classes; Y3S, Y3/4K or Y4H.

The school day starts at 8:50am with the classroom doors opening at 8:45am. Registration is at 9:00am and learning starts immediately after. The school day ends at 3:05pm and children will need to be collected by an adult from the classroom door.

If you would like your child to be collected from school by someone other than yourself then a form will need to be filled in to advise school who your child/children can leave with. Forms are available from the office or from the classroom.

Please ensure your child has a water bottle to keep in the classroom. This can be taken home every day and filled with fresh water.

Reading books and reading journals will be sent home daily, and it would be beneficial if children read at least 3 times at home during each week. Reading diaries should be kept up to date by children and then signed by an adult.

Spellings will be tested on Friday and new spellings will be given out with their homework on Friday. Homework is due back into school the following Wednesday.

PE day for 3/4K and 4H is on Wednesday and 3S is Thursday. The children will require appropriate indoor/outdoor PE kit according to our PE policy.

Our topic for this term, is ‘Who were the Vikings?’ Within this topic, children will be finding out what life was like as a Viking and we will also be having a visit from a Viking!

We have lots of exciting things planned and look forward to the year ahead.

Best wishes,

The Lower KS2 Team
