Key Stage 2 Curriculum

Literacy

During Key Stage 2, pupils learn to change the way they speak and write to suit different situations, purposes and audiences. They read a range of texts and respond to different layers of meaning in them. They explore the use of language in literary and non-literary texts and learn how language works. Teachers ensure that work in the three areas of ‘speaking and listening’, ‘reading’ and ‘writing’ are integrated into their Literacy planning.

Numeracy

During Key Stage 2, pupils use the number system more confidently. They move from counting reliably to calculating fluently with all four number operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). They always try to tackle a problem with mental methods before using any other approach. Pupils explore features of shape and space and develop their measuring skills in a range of contexts. They discuss and present their methods and reasoning using a wider range of mathematical language, diagrams and charts.

Physical Education

In Key Stage 2, pupils enjoy being active and using their creativity and imagination in physical activity. They learn new skills, find out how to use them in different ways, and link them to make actions, phrases and sequences of movement. They enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other. They develop an understanding of how to succeed in different activities and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.

Art

During Key Stage 2, pupils develop their creativity and imagination through more complex activities. These help to build on their skills and improve their control of materials, tools and techniques. They increase their critical awareness of the roles and purposes of art, craft and design in different times and cultures. They become more confident in using visual and tactile elements and materials and processes to communicate what they see, feel and think.

Music

In Key Stage 2 (P3-P5) pupils sing songs and play instruments with increasing confidence, skill, expression and awareness of their own contribution to a group or class performance. They improvise, and develop their own musical compositions in response to a variety of different stimuli, with increasing personal involvement, independence and creativity. They explore their thoughts and feelings through responding physically, intellectually and emotionally to a variety of music from different times and cultures.

Information, Communication, and Technology (ICT)

At AISJ we aim to integrate ICT into other curriculum subjects. This is often through using computers as a vehicle for research projects or to support subject teaching through educational programmes and games. Each classroom is equipped with a computer linked to a screen so that educational programmes linked with Numeracy, Literacy or IPC can be shared with the whole class. This provides a visual learning tool for students.
