Lower Key Stage 2 - Y3 and Y4
Each class teacher will upload a week of activities for you to do across the week. The activities will be on one document and include a selection of activities from all areas of the National curriculum. These are just for guidance. There is no pressure from us for you to complete every single one.
We recommend children in Y3 & 4 spend, each day, 20 minutes on English, 20 minutes on maths and 1 hour on other curriculum subjects plus 15 minutes of reading and 20 minutes of exercise.
We would encourage you to email completed work or photos of your child learning to your child’s class teacher. It will be marked, and feedback or comments provided via the email address you sent the work in from. Teachers will provide feedback every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Tuesday and Thursday will be used by them to prepare the work for the following week.
Please email your child’s class teacher with any queries or if you would like share any of your child’s learning. We're always on the end of an email, so please make contact with us. Everything that you do with your child will make a difference so thank you.

Top tips for learning spellings
Look, Cover, Write, Check
1. Look at the spelling word
2. Cover the work with your hand
3. Write the word
4. Uncover the word and check you have spelt it correctly
Make it fun!
Choose some cheerful coloured pencils and copy the words out in rainbow writing.
Try putting the words into sentences to make sure your child understands what they mean and how to use them.
