Curriculum Maps (KS2)

Aims of the curriculum -   Every school must offer a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based and which:

  • promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and
  • prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
  • The national curriculum provides pupils with an introduction to the essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizens.
  • The national curriculum is just one element in the education of every child. There is time and space in the school day and in each week, term and year to range beyond the national curriculum specifications. The national curriculum provides an outline of core knowledge around which teachers can develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school curriculum.

English Curriculum (KS2)

English has a pre-eminent place in education and in society. A high-quality education in English will teach pupils to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others and through their reading and listening, others can communicate with them. Through reading in particular, pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Literature, especially, plays a key role in such development. Reading also enables pupils both to acquire knowledge and to build on what they already know. 


Aims
The overarching aim for English in the national curriculum is to promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written word, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.

The national curriculum for English aims to ensure that all pupils:

1. read easily, fluently and with good understanding
2. develop the habit of reading widely and often, for both pleasure and information
3. acquire a wide vocabulary, an understanding of grammar and knowledge of linguistic
conventions for reading, writing and spoken language
4. appreciate our rich and varied literary heritage
5. write clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style in and for a
range of contexts, purposes and audiences
6. use discussion in order to learn; they should be able to elaborate and explain clearly
their understanding and ideas
7. are competent in the arts of speaking and listening, making formal presentations,
demonstrating to others and participating in debate.

Maths (KS2)

During key stage 2 pupils use the number system more confidently. They move from counting reliably to calculating fluently with all four number operations. They always try to tackle a problem with mental methods before using any other approach. Pupils explore features of shape and space and develop their measuring skills in a range of contexts. They discuss and present their methods and reasoning using a wider range of mathematical language, diagrams and charts.


Knowledge, skills and understanding


During the key stage, pupils should be taught the Knowledge, skills and understanding
through:

  1. activities that extend their understanding of the number system to include integers,
    fractions and decimals.
  2. approximating and estimating more systematically in their work in mathematics
    using patterns and relationships to explore simple algebraic ideas.
  3. applying their measuring skills in a range of contexts
  4. drawing inferences from data in practical activities, and recognising the difference
    between meaningful and misleading representations of data
  5. exploring and using a variety of resources and materials, including ICT
    activities in which pupils decide when the use of calculators is appropriate and then
    use them effectively
  6. using mathematics in their work in other subjects.
