Upper Key Stage 2
Throughout the school, we believe that education must develop every child's personality, talents and abilities to the full. To this end, the children experience a varied but balanced curriculum that addresses: science, history, geography, ICT and music through a topic based approach. Throughout the curriculum we seek opportunities for performance (music and drama). In addition, we teach discrete sessions in Maths, English, Phonics, French, Computing and Physical Education.
Upper Key Stage 2 consists of Years 5 and 6, we have designed an exciting and creative topic-based curriculum. Wherever possible, we link in as many subjects as we can to ensure that the children have continuity and a purpose for their learning. We begin with a 'theme' for the term, then hold a planning meeting, during which we ensure the National Curriculum requirements are being met and that the work done throughout the different year groups is challenging and progressive. Each theme is 'launched' with an exciting activity designed to capture the children's imaginations and give them a thirst for more!
