Key Stage 2

The British School Warsaw provides a dynamic and energetic learning environment, which aims to nurture outstanding academic achievement, whilst also supporting our students to develop critical skills for lifelong success.

Lower Key Stage 2

In lower Key Stage 2 (Years 3 and 4), we aim to provide a positive, stimulating and challenging learning environment which builds upon the children’s experiences from Key Stage 1. Children are encouraged to become independent and high-performing learners who take pride in their study and want to do well. We also expect them to begin to become more independent in other areas, such as taking responsibility for bringing what they need to school.

Our curriculum provides many opportunities for collaborative working which, as well as supporting the children academically, continues to develop their social skills. We want our children to value and respect themselves and each other, as well as to show consideration for the wider community.

Our year group teaching teams share the preparation of work, drawing on different experiences, knowledge and expertise to ensure that our lessons are relevant and well-matched to meet the needs of all of the children. We want each child to experience and actively participate in a relevant and enjoyable curriculum which inspires them.

We aim to integrate the children’s learning through engaging topics. Throughout the year, our topic work covers History, Geography, Science, Art, Design & Technology, PSHCE, and where possible, Literacy and Maths. Weekly specialist lessons include Polish, Music and P.E. Our curriculum is enhanced by trips and special guest speakers.

Reading daily is still important in lower Key Stage 2 and children’s reading books are changed on a regular basis. In guided reading, we focus on developing their comprehension skills and ability to talk about the text. As the children become fluent readers, we promote reading for pleasure. Their weekly library session gives them access to a wide selection of books and we encourage parents and children to share books together at home.

Throughout the year, the children have many opportunities to present and perform to a range of audiences - their classes, the whole school, parents – which builds their confidence and allows them to share their many talents. Performances include the house singing competition, class assemblies and a Year 3 performance at the end of the autumn term, along with Year 4 joining our KS2 production.

All our students are important to us and we delight in celebrating their many successes, both academic and personal, at this stage of their education.

Upper Key Stage 2

The curriculum in upper Key Stage 2 (Years 5 and 6) builds on the importance of knowledge, skills and understanding already established in lower Key Stage 2.

We focus on key subject areas and cross-curriculum priorities designed to support future learning, growth and active participation in an international learning community. Subject areas taught include Literacy, Numeracy, Science, Information Technology, PSHCE and weekly sessions of Physical Education and Music. We follow a theme-based approach to History, Geography, Art which encourages a creative thinking curriculum.

As a leading school with an international community, our curriculum takes our local and global culture and environment into account. Productions, residentials, excursions and theme days are a great asset and students find these a rewarding way to explore their world.

Students in upper Key Stage 2 are encouraged to become aspiring leaders. They gain a sense of responsibility and purpose in their roles as senior students, taking on roles such as house captains, student council representatives and global campus leaders. Students are actively involved in real life scenarios, situations and projects that enable them to build on and implement ideas that create change and make a difference in their local community.

A Nord Anglia Education initiative, Challenge Based Learning, is one avenue we use for students to action change and become enterprising learners. Students are asked to develop a big idea linked to a global issue and to create guiding questions that direct their learning towards an outcome that is measurable and makes an impact to those around them.

As our students mature socially and emotionally, we recognise their potential and provide a wealth of opportunities for collaborative working and risk-taking. We encourage an open-mind as we support them both academically and socially.

Global learning and awareness are a strong focus in upper Key Stage 2. Using key learning principles of and modern technologies, our approach to teaching and learning consistently promotes creativity, inquiry, collaboration and communication. We create an environment where students are asked to extend and challenge their learning, to analyse and reflect on their achievements and to celebrate success and confidence. The Nord Anglia Education Global Campus is a vital tool in which our students develop these skills and share their knowledge and abilities on a worldwide scale.

We ensure a smooth transition into secondary school life with students feeling positive and supported as they move forward in to the next phase of their learning. Tours, parent information sessions and a transition day provide an opportunity for students to experience lessons, familiarise themselves with timetables and facilities, and to make connections with future learning.
