KS2

We have nine classes in our Key Stage 2 building, two in each of the four year groups.  The children are aged from 7 years to 11.  

KS2 is led by Ms Potts who is also the Deputy Headteacher.

Key Stage 2 Curriculum

The Key Stage 2 curriculum differs from Key Stage 1 only in the addition of Modern Foreign Languages.  At Bengeo, we teach French from Year 3 to Year 6.  The core subjects of maths and English are taught every day (usually in the morning).  The other subjects are science (also a core subject), information & communication technology (ICT), history, geography, art, design & technology (D&T), physical education (PE), religious education (RE), music and personal, social and health education (PSHE).  The subjects are taught, as much as possible, through topics (eg. Space) as the linking of ideas & knowledge enhances meaning and understanding for the children.
