Key Stage 2

In KS2, all children continue to be taught the enhanced National Curriculum subjects as well as ​Wellbeing which includes the Government recommended provision for personal, social, health, economic and relationships education.

  • Science: 3 hours 
  • PE: 4 hours.

In English, key texts or excerpts are taught throughout each year to ensure coverage of the full range of genre and skills. We teach discreet spelling, grammar, text level and comprehension lessons.

In Mathematics, mathematical knowledge/ concepts are applied to everyday situations. Multiplication and division skills are developed and applied to finding unit and non-unit fractions to multiply them by whole numbers.

Children who are more able and those with additional educational needs are identified and interventions are put in place to help address their needs. Children needing further encouragement and support may also work in small groups with our team of learning support teachers.
