Welcome to the LB2 web page. If you have any concerns or queries, do not hesitate to get in touch with the school.
On this page you can find:

This half term, Summer 2, we will be learning about...
English - We will continue to be reading The Bluest of Blues by Fiona Robinson for biography/non fiction texts. We will be writing to instruct/explain and inform. After this, we will be using The Bluest of Blues to inspire poetry. In the second half of the term we will be splitting into two groups with our older children studying The King of the Sky by Nicola Davies and our younger children looking at rhyming texts starting with Hairy Maclarey.
Maths - We will be looking at aspects of shape, geometry and statistics .
Geography- We will be becoming map experts and learning to use ordinance survey maps and grid references. Our older children will use their skills to apply these creating their own maps.
Science - Children will be exploring the wonderful world of plants.
DT and Art - Children are mostly in mainstream for art and DT and will follow their year group curriculum. Year 3 children will be learning about levers, pivots and mechanisms in order to create their own litter picker.
RE - Most children are in mainstream for RE and will follow their year group curriculum. Please see the relevant class page for more information. Year 3 will be looking at how and why people try to make the world a better place.
Music - All children are in mainstream for music.
Computing - Children are mainly in mainstream classes for their computing curriculum. Year 3 are looking at media and desktop publishing in LB2.
PSHE - All children are in mainstream .

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 children are in mainstream classes for some areas of the curriculum. Visit the mainstream Year Group pages for curriculum overviews.
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. Please make sure all earrings are removed or covered with tape before school on these days.
