KS2 Language Base

Welcome to LB2

Mrs Teasdale, Mrs Bryan and Mrs Underhill


Welcome to the LB2 web page. 

On this page you can find:

- Class information including spellings and home learning;

- Information about our curriculum and learning, including an overview of our current topic.



Within Lickey Hills Language Base, each curriculum area is adapted to the needs of the current cohort of pupils. This creates a flexible and bespoke curriculum which changes annually. Additionally, many Language Base pupils access mainstream classes for some areas of the curriculum. Visit the mainstream Year Group pages for curriculum overviews.      

Year 3                   Year 4                   Year 5                   Year 6


English -  Our reading and writing in English will be inspired by the brilliant book, 'I was a Rat’ by Philip Pullman.  Our focus in writing will be using subordinate clauses for our diary entry and inverted commas to show direct speech which we will apply to our newspaper report! We will also continue to practise our retrieval and inference skills using extracts from this book weekly.

Maths -  Y3 are telling the time and comparing and ordering fractions. Y4 are practising times tables as well as looking at money, length, mass and volume.  Y6 topics in Maths are percentages, geometry, position and movement, and measurement.  In geometry, the children will learn to recognise different types of angles and begin to use a protractor to measure and draw angles.

History - In our Y3 and Y4 History topic, we will be thinking about, 'What was life like in Ancient Egypt compared to Ancient Britain?' Our Y6 children will be joining mainstream for their afternoon lessons including Humanities, so please see the Y6 webpage for their curriculum overview.

Science - We are looking at how  living things can be grouped in a variety of ways and trying to recognise that environments can change and that this can sometimes pose dangers to living things.

Art / Design & Technology - Children are in mainstream for art and DT and will follow their year group curriculum. Please see the relevant class page for more information.

RE - Y6 and Y4 are in mainstream for RE and will follow their year group curriculum.  Please see the relevant class page for more information. Y3 remain in LB2 for RE. We will be thinking about, 'What is it like for someone to follow God?' 

Music, Computing,  PSHE- Children are in mainstream.

PE - Children are all in mainstream for PE and games and will follow their year group curriculum.



Spellings will be sent out on Wednesdays to practice at home before the tests on the following Monday. Current spellings can be found online on the link to the right

Maths homework (usually based on times tables and number facts) are also set on Wednesday and due back by the following Monday. We also strongly encourage the children to read at least three times a week at home for 20 minutes a time.

Please make sure you have your PE kits in school for our sporting activities:  Please send your child to school in their kit on their PE day - where PE lessons are outdoors, you may wish to consider your child having a tracksuit for the day. Mainstream PE lessons are marked on your child's timetable in the front of the communication book - Y3 Monday and Wednesday; Y4 Swimming Wednesday and PE Friday; Y5 Tuesday and Wednesday; Y6 Thursday and Friday. Please make sure all earrings are removed or covered with tape before school on these days.
