At Lindsworth School, our aim as a KS2 team is to deliver a high quality curriculum that allow learner’s to both enjoy and achieve. Our key goals include:

  • A safe and positive learning environment where pupils feel secure in being able to express themselves.
  • A learning environment that promotes respect, tolerance and equality.
  • Developing social skills through a range of different experiences.
  • Achieving successful outcomes based on the individual needs of our pupils.
  • For pupils to be proud of both their own achievements and those of others.

 

In 2018-19, KS2 have achieved these goals. Student’s have flourished under our ethos, developing their social skills and confidence through appropriate challenge in lessons, positive promotion of respect and tolerance in school and opportunities for enrichment activities outside of school, including sledging, horse riding and water sports.

 

Curriculum

In KS2, our thematic cross curricular approach provides different challenges and learning opportunities for our pupils. Learning is interlinked, encouraging pupils to learn and apply different skills across a range of lessons and tasks. Our pupils also have the opportunity to take part in an educational trip each half term for each topic.

 

Below are our curriculum themes for 2019-20:

 

 

What you can do to help at home

Reading: It is vitally important that our pupils are reading as much as possible. Reading diaries will be sent home to encourage pupils to read and log the amount of time they have spent on this. An encouraging ear for this is so important. Further reading interventions that can be accessed at home include Bug Club, an online resource to support development of reading and spelling. Each week, pupils will be sent home with key spelling words for their age group; it is vital they practise these so that they can be successful in class!

 

Maths: As a school, we have access to multiple online platforms that allow learners to develop all aspects of their numeracy skills, including My Maths, Manga Maths and Times Tables Rockstars. Using these at home can only help your child progress further in Maths.
