In Key stage 2 our aim is to make learning fun. The basic skills of maths, reading and spelling grammar and punctuation form a very important of our daily teaching however we try to make this as interesting and enjoyable as we can. We use stories to inspire our learning. This allows us to give purpose to our Literacy and work and supports us in planning activities creatively to cover all aspects of the curriculum in an interesting and meaningful context.

This half term we are reading The Boy in the Dress by David Walliams. The text is inspiring work on friendships. Reading the text has motivated us to find out what makes us all different and we will be investigating different religions. We are also studying the human body. This will include finding out  what makes us healthy. The children are particularly looking forward to planning and cooking a healthy meal. 

Each half term the children enjoy an enrichment activity of their choice which takes place weekly, on a Wednesday afternoon. Activities available include mountain biking, animal care, Lego technology and catering. The children continue having swimming lessons every week. They develop water confidence, stroke techniques and water safety skills.
