Key Stage 2 KS2 (7-11 years old)

In Key Stage 2, we teach an adapted British curriculum with International elements integrated throughout. Children’s learning is centered around exploration and pupils beginning to find their own independence, applying key skills that will help them develop into a global citizen.  This includes combining teacher led activities with self-discovery and team building, both inside and outside of the classroom. As we are a culturally diverse school, our ethos emphasises the importance of global citizenship throughout Key Stage 2, encompassing world matters such as environmentalism and current global affairs.

Literacy is focused around not just their writing ability, but their creativity. Using objectives set in the British curriculum, children are exposed to range of texts and how to write them effectivity. Maths again follows the British curriculum but here at One International School we focus on their problem solving skills, ensuring children are able to understand the mathematical skills but are also able to apply this effectively outside of the classroom.  Science  has a major focus on exploring and experiments, getting the child to be active in their own learning. The Project Based Learning approach used at One International School is designed to aid the children in becoming global citizens; they study a range of topics important to them and their surroundings. Previous examples have included Climate Change and Saving the Ocean. Children lead their own learning in these projects, focusing on issues that are of interest to them.

Across all core subject areas, each child has personalised targets tailored to their needs. Our small class sizes in Key Stage 2 enable teachers to cultivate a close working relationship with the children often working on a one to one basis and truly understanding the needs of our pupils. We find these personalised core targets are best achieved when mixed with stimulating lessons that go beyond our international curriculum.

Thanks to our beautiful surroundings, we are lucky enough to spend many of our lessons learning about such matters outside, surrounded by our wonderful tropical environment.

It is with this mixture of academic and creative learning that makes Key Stage 2 a splendid platform to encourage independent, creative thinkers.
