Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 make up Key Stage 2, where students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and become more independent, as they prepare to join senior school.
Personal and social skills are a big focus of Key Stage 2; to help them prepare for the academic rigors facing them in their future schooling, students are given the chance to lead and manage groups, run class meetings, give presentations and use their initiative. Reflection, self-assessment and target setting also start to become part of our students’ learning, as they are encouraged to explore their own independence.
Rapid progress is made in our students' English language learning, as they begin Key Stage 2 recognising and learning some of the patterns of English grammar whilst continually enhancing their vocabulary, and leave it as confident, talented English speakers ready to flourish in our senior school.
Our students make the most of more extra-curricular opportunities as they reach Key Stage 2, with more after school clubs, sports and school trips available to them. Their language learning also increases dramatically, with the opportunity to take on either French or German, additionally to their English language learning, or to continue their Czech learning if they are Czech natives.
