Key Stage 2: Nurturing Growth and Development at Kigwa Ridge School

Key Stage 2 represents a pivotal period in your child's educational journey. At Kigwa Ridge School, we understand the importance of this stage and are deeply committed to providing a nurturing and academically stimulating environment. In Key Stage 2, comprising Years 3 to 6, children typically range from 7 years to 11 years old.

Year 3: Building Strong Foundations

Year 3 marks the transition from the more play-based learning of Key Stage 1 to a more structured curriculum. Building on the foundations of literacy and numeracy, children deepen their understanding of core subjects like:

  • English: Enhancing reading comprehension, writing skills, and grammar.

  • Mathematics: Developing fluency in problem-solving, arithmetic, and geometry.

  • Science: Exploring the world around them through investigations and experiments.

  • Other Subjects: History, geography, art, music, design and technology, computing, and physical education remain integral.

Year 4: Expanding Horizons

In Year 4, children become more confident learners. They begin to explore more complex concepts and tackle increasingly challenging tasks. Our focus includes:

  • Critical Thinking: Developing reasoning skills across subjects.

  • Independent Learning: Fostering responsibility and time management.

  • Collaboration: Learning to work effectively in groups and teams.

Year 5: Growing Confidence

As students progress to Year 5, their independence and ability to tackle complex ideas increase. Key areas of development include:

  • Advanced Literacy: Analyzing literature and honing persuasive writing skills.

  • Mathematical Fluency: Problem-solving with fractions, decimals, percentages, and more.

  • Scientific Inquiry: Designing and conducting in-depth experiments.

Year 6: Preparing for the Next Step

The final year of Key Stage 2 is a culmination of the skills and knowledge children have acquired. With a focus on solidifying concepts and preparing for the transition to secondary school, students at Kigwa Ridge experience:

  • SATs Preparation: Specific guidance ensures students are ready for the end-of-Key-Stage assessments.
