Key Stage 2

Category: Uncategorised Published: Sunday, 26 January 2014

 

There are four classes in Key Stage 2, one Year 4 class, one Year 5 class and two Year 6 classes.

 

NEW--------We have a short video tour of Key Stage two. Please click here to view in Youtube

Before starting in KS2 a member of staff will visit each pupil in their Primary school, find out a little about the pupil and discuss what school will be like when they join Priory. Transition visits are then organized. Before the pupil starts in September, the pupil will already be familiar with their form tutor, their new classroom and some of the other new pupils starting.

KS2 is organized on a six period day. Each lesson is 45 minutes long and is delivered by a subject teacher. Form tutors usually teach their own form English and Maths so that they get to know the pupils in their tutor group. Most parental contact is with the form tutor.  There is a parents evening each term and in the Summer term parents are invited into school for an annual review. Teachers are always happy to discuss concerns outside these planned meetings and an appointment can be made to see a teacher by phoning the office or writing a note in the pupils’ home/school diary.

All National Curriculum subjects are taught. There is swimming every Friday afternoon and in Year 6 there is an opportunity for pupils to attend the local RDA Centre for horse riding lessons on a Tuesday morning. We aim to enhance learning and independent living skills with trips and outdoor activities. There will be a variety of trips throughout the year and at the end of the Spring term we have our annual residential trip to the Kingswood Centre on the North Norfolk Coast. These trips are built into curriculum planning and provide first hand experiences to support the development of both academic and social skills.

Pupils in Key Stage 2 are required to wear royal blue sweatshirts which can be ordered from the school office.
