At our school, the Key Stage Two team build on skills taught and learnt in Key Stage One.
We aim to produce independent and curious learners, who go forward to secondary school with a love for learning.
In Years 3 – 6, children are taught by their class teacher, sometimes in smaller groups for the core subjects. Children are taught English through the Talk for Writing approach and mathematics is taught using the Maths Mastery approach.
Each year group has many interesting science, history and geography topics to cover. We follow detailed schemes of work for all National Curriculum subjects and ensure that a broad and balanced curriculum is followed. We also have many visitors to our school who enhance our curriculum.
We like to continue broadening our children’s experiences by taking them out on trips to places such as Hampton Court, The Imperial War Museum and Chelsea Physic Garden. We also introduce dedicated music teachers to pupils in year 3 and year 4 who learn the recorder and trumpets.
Year 4 take part in a concert at the Royal Festival Hall to celebrate the musical skills they have developed throughout the year. Year 5 take part in a Wandsworth’s A Brighter Sound Concert which is a singing project involving over 1000 pupils in Wandsworth every year at the Royal Festival Hall.
Key Stage Two is where competitive sports competitions really take off for our children and they compete against other schools in the borough in a number of different sports. They also take up swimming during Key Stage Two.
We also invite Wandsworth Borough cycle trainers in to the school to teach our Year 5 and Year 6 pupils cycling proficiency level one and level two every year.
Our Year 6 children have a residential trip at the beginning of their final school year. This is an opportunity for them to sample new activities they may not have done before, build their confidence and foster a team spirit amongst themselves for their final year at primary school. For the last three years we have taken our Year 6s to PGL Centre Windmill Hill.
