Key Stage 2 - Year 4 & 5
In upper Key Stage 2 children are expected to take a more mature and independent approach towards learning. These skills are developed throughout the year during a variety of tasks and lessons and provide the key foundations that prepare our children for the next stage of their learning.
It is important that all children continue to read to and discuss texts with an adult on a regular basis. Children should aim to read for at least ten minutes every night and at least once during the weekend (Friday to Sunday).
Weekly spellings will be given out, and should be practised at least 4 times per week. Children should also continue to learning their multiplication tables and division facts at home. All children have login details for Spelling Shed and Times Table Rock Stars in their Reading Records.
In the summer term Year 5, along with Year 6, are invited to go on a 2 night residential trip to a specialist outdoor pursuits centre. This represents a fantastic opportunity for our children to develop their resilience and further skills that they may not have even discovered yet. We are currently planning a trip for Year 4 students too.

We had a great time exploring flint tools as part of our Stone Age topic in Cedar class.
