Welcome to Lower Key Stage Two!

Years 3/4 - Our Spring 2020 Big Picture question:

How do we overcome challenges?

Welcome to our Years 3 and 4 classes! Our class names are Frogs (Y3), Lizards (Y3), Adders (Y4) and Grass Snakes (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. 

Spring is our 'Explore' term! Geography is our starting point, and other subjects link to our theme wherever possible. We use Knowledge Organisers to show specific vocabulary and information that children will learn during the term.

Our Learning Plans and Organisers 

We enjoy learning together! Here are overviews of our termly plans, our knowledge organisers and our suggested reading lists for children in Years 3 and 4. Please take a look at what we have been doing!

Learning Together

Memorable Experiences

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

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. In Autumn 2019, we produced a history brochure about Lincoln which we shared at The Collection Museum.
