Swans Class

Key Stage 2 – Years 5 & 6

Upper Key Stage 2 starts in Year 5 and finishes when the children leave primary school at the end of Year 6. Emphasis in this class is still placed on a balanced and creative curriculum, but one that also encourages independence and self-organisational skills. By the end of Key Stage 2, the children will have had the opportunity to take part in a number of transition activities (so they feel more prepared for High school), will have had the opportunity to take part in a week-long residential trip and they will have also taken their Key Stage 2 SATs tests.
