Key Stage 2
The emphasis in Key Stage Two is on "learning how to learn". Learning is seen as a process; education as an adventure and a journey that is both exciting and rewarding!
Aged between the ages of seven and eleven, KS2 children are encouraged to be receptive to new concepts and to evaluate their own progress when dealing with them. They have access to a wide range of information and media and are taught the value of effective communication as a tool for furthering understanding.
We aim to build on and enhance the wide variety of knowledge, skills and experiences that the children bring to SCIPS and to equip them for the future. Activities are differentiated to meet the needs of individual children. Across all curriculum areas we hope to foster these attributes:
Currently we have over 200 children in Key Stage Two, who speak many different languages between them. All of our lessons (with the exception of Modern Language classes) are conducted in English and we are very proud of the rapid acquisition of English that the children make.
At present we have 11 classes in Key Stage Two, each one being led by an over-seas trained teacher. However, the children also enjoy working with specialist teachers for subjects such as music, modern languages, library and physical education.
In Key Stage Two homework is given on a daily basis and serves to reinforce class teaching. There is a balance and range in homework activities with no one subject being given preference.
