Lower Key Stage 2

Welcome to Lower Key Stage 2! 

Our Lower Key Stage 2 is taught in three classes:

  • Year 3- Chestnut class
  • Year 3/4- Birch class
  • Year 4- Maple class

In LKS2, the children will cover a wide range of interesting topics, interwoven through thematic and linked learning. Each topic will give the children a chance to embed and expand upon their learning throughout Richard Wakefield so far.

As they work their way through LKS2, the children will take increasing ownership over their learning. Children will be given more opportunities to challenge themselves in a safe space and feel more comfortable asking increasingly complex questions about the world around them.
