Learning in Primary Key Stage Two
Using English National Curriculum best practice, we teach Science, History, Geography, Art, Design Technology, Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE), Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), Music and Physical Education (PE) through a topic-based approach where learning is integrated into child-centred activities. Teachers ensure that the topic themes are broad and balanced, so as to provide continuity and progression across the year groups.
Teaching through inspiring and exciting topics allows us to present an inquiry-based approach to the curriculum. We encourage pupils to become independent learners and allow them to take ownership of their learning and progress.
We create a learning environment where pupils are pushed to extend and challenge their learning, to analyse and reflect, to take risks and to develop intellectual confidence. We strive to ensure that all children achieve at a high level. We plan learning and development around the individual needs and interests of each child, using modern assessment methods to ensure that every child makes continuous progress.
