Key Stage 2
Key Stage 2 is often known as the juniors. The children in Key Stage 2 have four years to complete the stage rather than two years like the infants/ Key Stage 1. During these school years the curriculum content is new and exciting. The children travel further a field to seek new knowledge and skills to aid them back in the classroom. French is taught and many children choose Frunch - 'French before Lunch' when Madamme Frunch is running the club. Yr 6 experience a Residential trip, away with their peers and teachers, joining Curridge Primary. We have been to camps in the UK, France and Isle of Wight. We use Jigsaw to support PSHE and Cornerstones to provide the excellent, rich wider curriculum. It is on a two year rolling programme and teachers ensure each year we have completed a gap analysis and audit for training and resources.
Mr White began his career here in September 2015 under the leadership of the previous Headteacher. He is the class teacher in Year 5/6. Over time he has led on the improvements in spelling and grammar in the juniors. He ensures we are keeping up to date with changes in PSHE and relationships, and physical and mental wellbeing. Mr White is a natural performer and enjoys using digital literacy to develop and inspire children's writing. He currently is co-ordinating the use of video and digital platforms during national lockdowns.
