Welcome to Lower Key Stage Two

In Lower Key Stage 2, staff work together to ensure that the children have a comfortable and smooth transition between Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. In doing this, children are given a wide range of activities that develop and grow their independence and resilience, whilst nurturing their talents in all subject areas. Throughout the year, we actively encourage parental engagement, inviting parents to workshops three times per year to take a vital role in their child’s learning and experiences. Our half-termly newsletters will inform parents of our broad and balanced curriculum coverage.

Autumn 2


Discover the dangerous and ferocious world of natural disasters and glimpse their savage and deadly effects. Visit the ancient city of historic Pompeii, frozen in time, then create your own blistering explosions from model volcanoes that fire foamy lava.



Pull on your wellies and wade right in... How deep does it go and how fast does it travel? What soil types can you find by the riverside? Which animals make their homes there?

Urban Pioneers

Summer 2

I am Warrior!

I am warrior! I am strong, brave and powerful. Meet me in battle. Draw your sword, wield your axe and challenge me if you dare! Invade and attack, Romans verses the Celts, the fight is on...
