Key Stage 2

Key Stage 2

Years 3, 4, 5 & 6

Key Stage 2 (KS2) covers Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 of primary education. KS2 pupils progress from the KS1 curriculum to the second stage of a child’s primary education to engage in a more formalised style of teaching and learning and they begin to explore subjects in greater depth, following a balanced thematic curriculum which is now embedded across the school. Learning in this way enables children to remain engaged and motivated, make clear links between subjects and to apply a range of skills across all areas of the curriculum. 

Throughout the school the children work towards building our learning profile skills: creativity, resilience, risk taking, team work, independence and reflection. We are passionate about helping our children develop and build on these vital skills.

In Lower Key Stage 2 (Year 3 and 4) the children are taught in mixed ability groups. Offering smaller sized classes allows us to set high expectations as well as fully supporting them to reach their potential through our carefully planned thematic curriculum and differentiated lessons. 

In Upper Key Stage 2 ( Years 5 and 6) the children are set by ability for English and maths to enable more effective and efficient teaching by narrowing the range of pupil attainment in a class. 

The children in KS2 focus on the following themes:

Year 3

Autumn Term: Amazing Ancients

Spring Term: Magic, Mystery and Mayhem

Summer Term:  The Great Outdoors

Year 4

Autumn Term: Invasion of the Isles

Spring Term: Home and Away

Summer Term:  Empire Building

The children in KS2 focus on the following themes:

Year 5

Autumn Term: Law and Disorder

Spring Term: Victorious

Summer Term:  Epic Journeys

Year 6

Autumn Term: In the Wars

Spring Term: Innovation

Summer Term:  Our Changing World
