We love project based learning in Key Stage 2. Each term we plan a new project with a purposeful outcome. Autumn term is linked to a historical event, Spring term is linked to 'around the world in a term' and Summer term is linked to 'Inventions and Discoveries'. Our project outcomes are either an exhibition, a publication or a performance.
In Key Stage 2 we ensure that the following lessons are taught daily:
SUMMs ( supporting the understanding of mental maths)
We also ensure that during our project based learning children have the opportunity to develop skills in the following areas:
PE is delivered weekly by Active 1 Sports Coaching and this allows our staff to have PPA.
In order to plan exciting and challenging learning experiences for the children in Key Stage 2 we use Maths and Literacy programmes of study ( see Maths and Literacy link pages)to underpin learning. We also use Chris Quigley essential skills to ensure rigour and progression in history, Geography, Art Music and Science ( see link pages)
