Lower Key Stage 2

Welcome to Lower Key Stage 2! My name is Mr Goodwin and I am the phase leader for both Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2.  I teach in Year 6.  This year in Year 3 and Year 4 we will be learning about fascinating topics in lots of exciting ways.  In Year 3  we have Mrs Drysdale who is a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT); in Year 3/4 is Mrs Smith and in Year 4, Mrs Will is the class teacher.  There are two teaching assistants across the phase; Mrs Moores and Mrs Riley. We aspire to be active, independent, resilient and creative learners. In our phase we are proud of our achievements; we encourage one another and work as a team.  Throughout the year we will continually develop our ability to take risks, question, persevere, solve and reflect through a variety of exciting topics.  We will be authors of own super stories using our wonderful writing skills and maths wizzes by practising our very catchy times tables songs.  I look forward to the challenge and excitement that Year 3 and 4 will share together.

Assessing Attainment

Assessing children’s attainment in maths, reading, writing and Science in all Years is against a set of skills which are known as Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s).   There are sets of KPI’s for all year groups and at the end of the school year your child’s class teacher will analyse the attainment and progress made by your child against every KPI so that they can award them an overall Grade.   The KPI's in the statements are highlighted in BOLD

Please see the links below on the Year 3 and Year 4 Statements to view relevant KPIs for your child.
