Welcome to the lower key stage 2 information area.
Don’t forget to keep up to date with your child’s learning by accessing Class Dojo. We try to regularly update Class Dojo with photos and information about everything that’s happening in KS2.
Keep your child practising their times tables by using Times Table Rockstars and other areas of maths by playing Prodigy Maths.
Don’t forget to keep logging in to DB Primary for lots of educational games. Your child has a personal login that they will need to access the site. The site is woodley.suffolk.dbprimary.com
Things to remember

We will learn about ancient Greek warfare and find out about the beliefs of the ancient Greeks. Our current topic webs can also be found on the website.
There are 4 main purposes to writing: Writing to inform, writing to persuade, writing to entertain and writing to discuss. Your child will read a range of texts around these purposes and produce writing for each of the purposes. Below is a link to guidance notes for the four writing purposes in KS1 & 2.
We have a whole class reading approach to reading in LKS2 where your child will read and experience a range of text types and be answering questions about them.
The expectation in LKS2 is that children must regularly practise their times tables and weekly spellings. We also expect that children read at least 15 minutes a night. Reading is at the heart of our school and we have made a pledge to read to your child for 10 minutes each day. We kindly ask that you reflect this at home too. Research has shown that modelled reading makes a huge impact on a child’s own ability to read, plus enthuses and promotes a love of reading.
