Key Stage Two
Key Stage Two pupils have a daily English or Maths session and a weekly Computing, Science, Art, Music, Physical Education and swimming session. Religious Education (RE) and Personal Social Health Education (PSHE) are delivered on a half termly rotation. History, Geography and Design Technology is delivered on a termly rotation.
Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) at Key Stage Two:
Our adopted MFL is Spanish!
We have focussed sessions periodically during the year where we engage in multi-sensory and experiential activities related to the Spanish language and culture. This leads to an introduction to vocabulary as appropriate to the level of understanding of each pupil.
Phonics in the Primary Phase:
We follow ‘Letters and Sounds’, a systematic, synthetic phonics programme that is used to support children with their reading and spelling.
Phase 1: All pupils will experience aspects of this phase as appropriate to their needs, for example experiencing sounds during stories, music making and body percussion.
Phase 2: Is used with individual pupils who have reached a secure P4 in reading moving towards P5.
Further phases are used with individual pupils if appropriate.
Other resources may be used to support the teaching of phonics:
Emphasis is always on the MAKATON alphabet signs
