Lower Key Stage 2

Years 3 and 4 are critical stages in a child’s development. The Academy ensures a smooth transition between Key Stage 1 and Lower Key Stage 2, which ensures all children are well-prepared for any changes in the timetable and curriculum. Children in Lower Key Stage 2 are provided with a range of practical, sensory and creative experiences which allow them to gain a deeper understanding of concepts through application and reasoning. Children are provided with the opportunity to work within groups, pairs or independently throughout the day.

Knowledge Organisers

A Knowledge Organiser identifies the key facts and information that pupils need to know and understand about a topic. They include key vocabulary, images and diagrams and make connections to pupils’ prior learning. Each one has been written by our class teachers to support the delivery of our school curriculum.

Pupils have a copy of the topic Knowledge Organiser in their exercise book and can refer to them during lessons. They support pupils with retention and retrieval of knowledge.

The Knowledge Organisers for our Autumn 1 topics can be found below:
