Key Stage 2 – Overview
At Poringland Primary School, we strive to teach active, informative lessons that inspire children to learn. We look to ensure that the whole of the curriculum requirements are met by the time the children reach the end of Key Stage 2. From September 2018, Key Stage Two children will be taught in single-age classes, with a two-year rolling program of topics in Years 3 and 4, and a a two-year rolling program of topics in Years 5 and 6.
Each term focuses on one topic and this topic interlinks the subjects across the curriculum. This means that learning makes sense to children and teachers find innovative ways of linking different areas of the curriculum to one central theme. Two year groups follow the same topic so that assemblies and activities make sense and the children can share their learning experiences with children in other classes.
Our teachers have a wide range of skills and expertise and we utilise their strengths and knowledge across the Key Stage. We share good practice and exciting ideas, it is very much a team effort. Trips that children go on link to the topic and we shape our topic and vision with parents at the start of each term.
