Key Stage 2 allows us to hone our children’s ability to read and write. Our aim is for our
students to leave on par with, if not exceed, the level of their peers in the UK in just a
fraction of the time. We want to equip our pupils with an excellent command of the spoken and written word by the time they leave.
In Key Stage 2, children are taught to communicate their ideas, organising them coherently for a reader. Emphasis is placed on audience awareness, purpose and context of a text. We try to expose children to an increasingly wider vocabulary. Children are also taught how to plan, revise and evaluate their writing. Alongside the written objectives, we encourage children to read frequently and we aim to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.
