Key Stage 2
“The quality of teaching and classroom support … is good with examples of inspiriting and thought-provoking practice.” (OFSTED 2014)
KS2 lasts for four years (Years 3-6) until the children transfer to secondary school at the age of eleven. In KS2 the children study the National Curriculum as well as RE and a modern foreign language. More teaching at this stage takes place in traditional subjects but topics remain an important part of our teaching and learning as we strongly believe that the cross curricular approach helps children make connections and apply their learning. In May of their final year the children are assessed by their teachers using a combination of teacher assessments and national tests in English (reading, writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar), mathematics and science with the results being reported to parents and carers.
In order to inform and support parents and carers, we have produced a range of handbooks to explain what your child will be taught in the key subjects of maths and English (writing, reading, grammar, punctuation and spelling) together with advice on you can help your child when working with them at home.
To download and/or read copies of the booklets relating to your child’s year group, please click on the link to get to their year group page and then download the documents from there.
Each term we will send out ‘Curriculum Newsletters’ to inform parents and carers of the learning that will be going on in their child’s class during that term. These newsletters can also be downloaded by clicking on the link.
