Throughout their time in KS2, children flourish into resilient, engaged and motivated learners through a rich, creative and broad curriculum. Our KS2 curriculum gives children a wealth of opportunities and experiences to fully engage in cross-curricular teaching and learning in a safe and stimulating environment. Children feel valued and hold high expectations of themselves and others and are not afraid to make mistakes in their journey to success. Our ‘Keep Up Not Catch Up’ philosophy and use of mixed ability teaching means that the Dringhouses Team do ‘whatever it takes’ to ensure that every children can succeed and that no child falls behind. Below you will see a flavour of the learning that takes place in KS2, but it you have any further questions, please feel free to contact Miss Swiers, Assistant Headteacher and KS2 leader, via the school office.
Our Learning project for the Autumn Term is ‘What a Wonderful World’. As part of our projects, we are using high quality texts as the driver for our learning. LKS2 are using ‘The Pebble in my Pocket’ which is facilitating learning about different landscapes, Geographical features and locations. UKS2 are using ‘The White Giraffe’ which is leading some facinating learning about savannahs, game reserves and hunting. The texts and being used across the curriculum in exciting and creative ways. As part of our project, the children will take part in a number of Enrichment activities including trips to Magma and The Yorkshire Wildlife Park, workshops in school and opportunities to present their learning.
