Lower Key Stage 2 (Lower Juniors)

Learning in Year 3 and 4

In Year 3 and 4, projects are taught over a 2 year cycle.

Every Advent (autumn) Term is a History based project; every Lent (spring) Term is a Geography based project and every Pentecost (summer) Term is based around Art/ Design and Technology and/ or the wider world.

Some subjects sometimes link in with the main ‘topic’ – such as science and computing; others stand alone – such as French, PE and PSHE.

Year 4 take part in the ‘Wider Opportunities’ music partnership for their music learning for the year and children learn either the violin or cello.
