Key Stage 2 is innovative, engaging and designed to meet the needs of all learners
Following Key Stage 1, children are immersed in a bespoke Key Stage 2 curriculum, which is based on the National Curriculum for England. It is innovative, engaging and designed to meet the needs of all learners. There is a strong focus on the core subjects of English, Maths and Science, where teachers skillfully plan to make cross-curricular links and provide opportunities for children to think at a deeper level by developing critical thinking skills. Where possible the learning is taken beyond the limits of the classroom to ensure learning is meaningful and to increase opportunities for the application of skills within a real life context.
Social Studies and Moral Education is integrated across all curricular areas. Focusing on local culture, local issues and encouraging students to become more responsible citizens of the UAE and the world.
Assessment for learning is used to inform planning and adapt lessons to meet the needs of all children, as well as providing opportunities for children to reach their full potential. At WPS we aim to develop confident and imaginative risk takers who work collaboratively to solve problems and can take on challenges at every level. This continuous learning journey prepares them for the next stage of their learning to ensure a smooth transition to secondary school.
