Welcome to Upper Key Stage Two!

In Upper Key Stage Two we strive to support children in their journey to become independent and responsible members of our community. To ensure this, we tailor learning to be purposeful and relatable to the wider world. For example, we encourage children to take greater responsibility for their learning and encourage independent problem solving across the curriculum. Children regularly evaluate their progress, successes are celebrated and mistakes seen as an opportunity to grow.

Heart Dissection 23.1.24 

UKS2 have thoroughly enjoyed their hands on science investigation dissecting hearts and getting to grips with the different parts of the heart. We were so impressed with the children’s resilience and their enthusiasm for giving it a go even when they were feeling a bit unsure about it.

Autumn 1 

What a fantastic start to our UKS2 journey. We have been so impressed with the work produced by the children throughout Autumn 1 and are so proud of how much we have already achieved. We have produced excellent writing based on Jurassic World, create our own version of Roald Dahl classics, performed brilliant Harvest poetry, cooked pizzas, learnt all about the changes in Britain throughout the Stone Age and Iron Age period and completed some amazing maths work. We are really looking forward to continuing our learning next half term and seeing what our children can achieve throughout.
