Routines and resources
In LKS2, we start each day with an early morning task. This may be finishing off, responding to marking, spellings, handwriting or a maths or English activity. We then have English and SPaG before assembly and maths after break time. The afternoons are for topic, PE and science lessons.
Outdoor Learning will take place on rotation on a Monday. Year 3 will have Outdoor Learning in Autumn 1 and Year 4 will have it in Autumn 2. For Outdoor Learning, children need to wear appropriate clothes for the weather which are able to get muddy!
PE for Juniper and Cherry is on Monday and Tuesday.
PE for Maple is on Tuesday.
PE for Pine is on Tuesday.
PE for Mulberry is on Wednesday.
All equipment needed is provided by the school, however pencil cases may be brought in to use when agreed by the teacher.
Year 4 multiplication test
From 2020, the Year 4's will be taking a national multiplication test which will test them on their times tables. The expectation is that they know all their tables up to 12 x 12 and can answer them within 6 seconds.
In preparation for this, all children will be given a login for an online program called Times Tables Rockstars in Year 3. This program supports our learning in school and allows the children to practise their tables and improve their speed in a fun way. The program will be used at school and can also be accessed at home for extra practise. You can access the website via the link below:
