What will my child be learning in Key Stage Two?
It is a very exciting transition for our KS2 children as they more the the 1st floor! Year 3, 4, 5, and 6 will begin to explore more about education and careers and will continue learning through exciting topics and texts. In Key Stage 2 children will go on trips and in some year groups they will have the fantastic opportunity to go on a residential!
Our curriculum for Key Stage Two is based on the National Curriculum. As children continue to develop their reading skills and love for reading, they will access the following programmes of study:
- Design and Technology
- Physical Education (PE)
- Religious Education (RE)
Alongside this, children will continue to develop their skills in; Yoga Sanskrit, PRE
By the end of Key Stage 2, we aim for all our pupils to have the confidence, resilience and increasing maturity to deal with changes in school and at home, whatever they may be. We expect them to have developed: a love of reading; a thirst to enquire, ask questions and find out; positive relationships; good behaviour; and key maths, musical and artistic skills to prepare them for their next phase of education.
Our compassionate and caring pastoral approach, based on the teachings of Hindu scriptures, will encourage all pupils to reflect on their own faith or belief system, to explore their spirituality and enter the Secondary phase of education with a reflective, critical thinking and compassionate mind. We want them to understand the impact of their choices on themselves, on others and on their environment, both locally and globally. We expect them to be positive contributors as British and World citizens.
