Upper Key Stage 2


Key Stage 2 Curriculum

Throughout the school, we believe that education must develop every child's personality, talents and abilities to the full. To this end, the children experience a varied but balanced curriculum that addresses: science, history, geography, ICT and music through a topic based approach. 

Throughout the curriculum we seek opportunities for performance (music and drama). In addition, we teach discrete sessions in Maths, English, Phonics, French, Computing and Physical Education. 

In Years 3, 4, 5 and 6, we have designed an exciting and creative topic-based curriculum and use the Cornerstones programme to support our curriculum.

In addition to Reading, Writing, Maths and PE, our curriculum is linked to the following themes:

Year 5

Autumn 1: Off with their head 
Autumn 2: Pharaohs
Spring 1: Stargazers
Spring 2: Alchemy Island
