Welcome to Lower Key Stage 2.  We have three Y3/Y4 classes; Falcons, Harriers and Kestrels.

Social Stories are a social learning tool that supports a safe and meaningful exchange of information for all children to share with their family.

They support communication skills through the use of precise  information about everyday events that your child may find difficult or confusing, but also help a child who may be feeling anxious about a new situation.

Please contact Mrs Ibitoye if you need any help accessing the social stories.

Whenever children are engaged in electronic communication, establish and reinforce messages about using technology safely, respectfully and responsibly.
