Ashton (Y3), Morgan (Y3), Coopers (Y4) and Gatcombe (Y4) 

Welcome to our Lower Key Stage 2 area for the year 2023-24! We hope that you will find this area of the website useful as we build in documents and photos that will help you understand our curriculum and also see what the children have been up to. Please also check out the youtube links to some of the times table videos we learn in class. 

In Year 4, Mr Lewis (Gatcombe) and Miss Swinson (Coopers) are the class teachers. In Year 3, Miss Roy (Ashton) and Miss Taylor (Morgan) are the class teachers.  To support us all in class are Jean, Sam, Jo and Julie. Mr Ashdown works on occasions in both Gatcombe and Morgan classes whilst Miss Holloway is on her teaching studies in Gatcombe class for some of the year. 


October 2023 – Paignton Zoo

In October, the whole of Year 3 and 4 were able to visit Paignton Zoo for the day. After an hour on the coach, we were met by the Education Team and given an introductory talk about the zoo and its centenary before we all split into smaller groups to tour the zoo. We had a talk from staff, outside the giraffe house, about Habitats, giraffes, ostrich eggs and snake skin and saw so many animals in every corner. This included rhino, orangutan, gorillas, cheetahs, lions, tigers, red pandas, all sorts of monkeys, the brand new sloth, small insects and amphibians, lemurs and so many more! We all had a fantastic time though were extremely tired by the end!

Knowledge Organisers 2023-24

Please have a look at our documents below which explain some of the key knowledge and learning we will be completing across each non core academic area. These are produced each half term and posted on ClassDojo too. We reference these in class and they prove to be extremely useful in helping the children to understand the most important parts of each topic area. Please read through them with your child to triangulate these.  If you wish for a paper copy please message the teacher.
