Key Stage 2 - Years 3 - 6
What is it like to be a learner in Key Stage 2?
As children move into Key Stage Two (KS2), the style of learning becomes more formal but remains focused on inspiring experiences and opportunities for children to collaborate together.
Children enjoy rich opportunities across all subjects. Classic children’s literature inspires writing and a love of reading, scientific enquiry deepens children’s thinking, individual sports and team games provide physical challenge, music and art allow children to express themselves creatively, journaling and meditation supports children’s well-being and gives them time in a busy week to reflect.
We have invested in technology to support children in becoming modern, global citizens. All children in Key Stage 2 have access to their own Chromebook which they use in school as part of their day to day learning, but can also take home should the need for remote learning arise.
We also use this technology to support our work with our Global Collaboration partners. Our Year 5 children are paired with children in schools in America and Spain and they work on collaborative projects over the year.
Our curriculum is organised so that children deepen their understanding by regularly revisiting key knowledge and concepts at increasing levels of complexity and challenge.
