Welcome to Lower Key Stage Two!

Years 3/4 - Autumn 2021

How do we know the truth about the past?

Welcome to our Years 3 and 4 classes! Our class names are Daisies (Y3), Poppies (Y3), Buttercups (Y4) and Sunflowers (Y4). Our learning always starts with a big question. We are planning some interesting, memorable experiences to enhance our learning. We will conclude our term with a 'Big Picture' sharing event, and this is an opportunity to share our learning with an audience. 

Autumn is our 'Discover' term. History is our starting point, and other subjects link to our theme wherever possible. We use Knowledge Organisers to give an overview of the specific curriculum content children will cover this ter,.

Learning Together

An Example of our Memorable Experiences

Each term, we aim to provide children with a memorable experience to support and inspire their learning. Recently, for example, we visited Magna Science Centre in Rotherham. We were able to learn about a variety of scientific concepts from experts. 

Learning Together

An Example of our Authentic Outcomes: Working with Visit Lincoln, Lincoln Central Library and The Collection

Our learning about transport involved a focus on our amazing city, and some of our school councillors visited attractions to find out more about them. Members of the Visit Lincoln team came to speak to us about promoting Lincoln, and set us a challenge of producing brochures to advertise places of interest. For our final exhibition, we invited people from our city to review them and give their feedback. This included guests from Multisport Pro and the New Theatre Royal. In the Summer Term, our art gallery has been on display at Lincoln Library and visitors are invited to comment on our work. We produced a history brochure about Lincoln which we shared at The Collection Museum.
