KS2 Learning (Yr 3-6)
Maintaining a healthy balance between different ways of teaching and learning ensures wider levels of interest and boosts children’s confidence and happiness.
Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6)
Alongside the core subjects of Maths, English, Science and French, we teach the Humanities throughout the Prep. Balancing your child’s school day, the children also have lessons in Art, Music, Drama, PE and Dance as well as PSHE. We are focused on accelerating languages and have specialist teachers with German, Spanish, and French all on offer All pupils study Latin in Years 5 & 6. All children are set in Maths.
Computer Science is taught as a stand alone lesson in Years 3-6 so that children can develop digital literacy and skills, including programming. Interactive methods of teaching are used increasingly in learning. We aim to ensure that all Prep pupils are aware of and ready to take on the challenges of the fast-moving digital world with personal access to Microsoft surface pro’s in Years 5 & 6 to prepare for Senior school.
We work to prepare the pupils academically to formally sit for entry into the Senior school in Year 6, and ongoing pupil support is given throughout the Prep years with both informal and formal assessments to keep the pupils on track, along with continued parental communication.
