Key Stage 2

Welcome to KS2.

There are eight classes in KS2 ranging from Year 3 to Year 6. As we are a large school, each year groups is split into two separate classes. However, children in KS2 work closely together to share experiences, share resources and to share ideas. In KS2, we develop a caring culture, older children will often work with younger children to offer a helping hand and support wherever they can. The school council is an excellent forum for the children of Fens to have a voice and to suggest ways we could improve the school for everyone.  

Our curriculum is packed with exciting opportunities. We have had a modern foreign languages week where children have experienced food from other cultures, developed their language skills and shared their work with other year groups. Our art week was a huge success. The week culminated in a celebration evening that was very well attended by parents, grandparents and children from right across the school. There are lots of exciting events like these planned throughout the year. Keep an eye on our website to find out more.   

Assemblies in school are times where we can get together to celebrate our achievements, worship together and to think about ways we can improve our lives and the lives of others. Each week a different class puts together a class assembly and presents it to the rest of the school. This is an excellent way to develop children’s confidence, develop their presentation skills and to get children thinking about important events and issues that are happening around us.

In KS2, children begin to develop links with the local secondary school (Manor Technology College). Children in Year 3 and 4 begin their swimming lessons which are taught by teachers from Manor at Manor. As children progress through KS2, the links develop. Children will be able to take part in sporting activities; they will have access to specialist equipment (when working with the technology department) and will be able to spend time getting to know the school and staff during various induction days. This will hopefully make their transition into secondary school that much easier.
