Key Stage 2
Key Stage 2 is made up of four classes; Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6
In both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 we assess children’s learning and progress accurately and regularly, ensuring that children know how well they have done and what they need to do to improve. In addition to our day to day assessment, National Curriculum tests in English and maths, completed at the end of Year 6, are designed to test children’s knowledge and understanding of specific elements of the Key Stage 2 programmes of study. They provide a snapshot of a child’s attainment at the end of the key stage. In addition to children completing written tests in English and maths, teachers assess children’s attainment in English, mathematics and science. These teacher assessment judgements are also reported to the Department for Education as well as to parents.
Homework gives children the opportunity to lead their own learning and parents the flexibility to manage home learning around family life. Make sure you check the termly letter from your child’s class-teacher for the details of when homework is set and when it needs to be returned to school.
