Lower Key Stage 2

Lower key stage 2: Year 3 & Year 4

Welcome to lower key stage 2! For some of you, we know this will be an exciting change as you move across school from key stage 1. We are so excited for the year ahead and we hope this page gives you lots of information about our wonderful key stage!

This year might be a little different for all of us. You will be working in class ‘bubbles’ (pretending there is a giant bubble around your class will help!). This means that you will not mix with other children from different bubbles. This is to make sure we all stay safe and healthy, so we can keep coming to school each day. All the teachers will work really hard to make sure you get to do all the usual fun activities that we do each year, even if some look a little different!

Who are the staff in Lower Key Stage 2?

Our Key stage leader is Miss Rennison

Homework

Things are a little bit different this year in school. You will get weekly homework in year 3 and year 4, but this will be set online on our Seesaw app. Your teachers will make sure you know how to use this at home. If you have any questions, or are finding this tricky, don’t forget to ask!

Reading at home is part of your homework. Try and read to an adult at least three times a week. When you have read 50, 100 and 150 books, you will be given a certificate and prize:

  • Reading 50 books – Children are awarded a certificate and a book of their choice.
  • Reading 100 books – Children are awarded a certificate and a bookmark.
  • Reading 150 books – Children receive a certificate and a book voucher.

House Teams

You will stay in the same house teams that you were in in year 1 and year 2. If you have any brothers and sisters in the school, they will be in the same house team as you. Here is a reminder of the house teams, the forest they are linked to and the house team leaders:

  • Green team – Guisborough Forest – Mrs Richardson
  • Red team – Danby Forest – Mrs Armes
  • Blue Team – Grizedale forest – Miss Wallis
  • Yellow Team – Hamsterley Forest – Miss Rennison

If you demonstrate our school values in school, staff will award you a team point for your team. The winning team at the end of the year will go on a whole school trip to their forest!

Pupil of the week

Every Friday, we have a celebration assembly to celebrate all the amazing things we have done in the week. Each teacher will pick a ‘Pupil of The Week’ and they will get a certificate and a prize. This year, celebration assemblies will be in your classes, to make sure we are staying in our class bubbles.
