Key Stage Two caters for children aged between seven and eleven years old. We currently have five single-aged classes with five teaching staff, five paid teaching assistants and several adult volunteers.
Key Stage Two appears to be a big step up from Key Stage One for some children with additional responsibilities and an expectation that children begin to take even greater control of their learning. A selection of children from all Key Stage Two classes are given positions of responsibility. Additional opportunities for the children in Key Stage Two include being part of and running the School Council; belonging to the Primary Enterprise Group; encouraging and supporting playground games as a ‘Buddy’, and developing the provision of school sport as a member of the Sports Council.
The academic work is rich and varied. Each class explores a different topic each term in which learning takes place through a variety of various cross-curricular activities – all supporting excellence and enjoyment. Visits out of school and the use of visitors into school are integrated into the curriculum on a regular basis to enrich the topics being studied.
