A WARM WELCOME
FROM THE HEAD OF UPPER KEY STAGE TWO
Years 5 and 6 sees the culmination of the primary stage of education for pupils where they will leave the phase with self-belief, determination and the confidence to face new challenges in the Senior School.
A very warm welcome to Upper Key Stage 2.
In Upper Key Stage 2, pupils are encouraged to continue to take more responsibility for their own learning and take pride in all they do. We help our children develop the skills for independent learning, reflection and self-assessment as they prepare for the move to Senior school. Children are given the chance to lead and manage groups, give presentations and use their initiative in completing independent projects to enhance their personal and social skills.
With a hybrid approach to teaching and learning, modern technology supports our teachers in promoting high standards of achievement through creativity, inquiry, collaboration and communication. Technology is used in all areas of the curriculum and each child must provide their own electronic device. Pupils learn how to collaborate on projects, manipulate images, text and film for a variety of purposes and programming skills. E-safety is a highly important aspect of using technology which is embedded within all areas of the curriculum.
In Years 5 and 6 we provide many opportunities for children to learn beyond the classroom and develop new skills through participation in productions, educational day visits, residential trips, themed days, enrichment and after school activities. Every child is encouraged to make the very best of their skills and abilities and flourish into confident young adults the Sherborne WAY.
