Hotham Primary

Lower Key Stage 2

Lower Key stage 2 compromises of four classes, two classes of Year 3 and two classes of Year 4. We ensure a smooth transition between Key stage 1 and Lower Key Stage 2 which is tailored for all children so that they are ready for the change in timetable and curriculum.

During the school day the children in Lower Key Stage 2 are provided with a range of practical and first hand experiences. Whilst engaging in creative and challenging activities and lessons, the children are provided with the opportunity to work within groups, pairs or independently throughout the day.

We have a dynamic curriculum which has cross curricular links with all of the subjects including the humanities geography and history, art and science. We cover 5 topics a year which immerse the children in topics such as the Tudors or Antarctica.

Some subjects are taught discretely, such as PE which is taught by qualified specialised instructors and includes tennis, basketball, multi-skills, gymnastics and swimming.  In Lower Key Stage 2 all children are also given the chance to learn a musical instrument and perform a concert to the parents.

Literacy and Numeracy lessons are taught daily ensuring that all lessons are tailored to suit the needs of individuals by differentiated, enjoyable and engaging challenge.
