Key Stage 2

Welcome Key Stage 2

A very warm welcome to the Key Stage Two Department of The English Academy, Kuwait.

My name is Miss Dobbins and I am very proud to be the Head of Department and the lead for this dynamic and ambitious team of wonderful teachers. Here at TEA, we follow the English 2014 National Curriculum, adapted to meet the needs of our students. Our team strives to enhance the quality of teaching and learning, providing fun, interactive and learning environments for each and every child.


Our department consists of twenty classes from year three to six,with five classes in each year group. Our students are at the heart of every decision; everything we do is about ensuring their learning experiences take place in a nurturing, supportive and stimulating setting. We actively promote a positive growth-mindset approach and we are proud to boast a strong pastoral structure at the heart of The English Academy. 


Our dedicated staff work incredibly hard to secure positive outcomes for students.  We work together to ensure the lessons we offer are purposeful and memorable for all students. In TEA, we believe in celebrating not only the academic success of our students but also promoting well rounded learners. We are proud to offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities such as sporting activities, public speaking and cooking, just to name a few. Trips to venues such as Museums, Parks and Galleries allow our students to add perspective to their learning and engage in the local community.


We aim to establish strong, positive relationships with our parents, staff and community. 


I look forward to welcoming you to our school.


Sincerely,


Miss Dobbins

Head of KS2

Curriculum

Here at TEA, we follow the English 2014 National Curriculum, adapted to meet the needs of our students. Our team strives to enhance the quality of teaching and learning, providing fun, interactive and learning environments for each and every child.



Literacy: At TEA, we follow the creative scheme of Talk for Writing as we strive for our Literacy lessons to be filled with enjoyment and engagement. The foundations of our literacy lessons are based on the principles of how people learn and our teachers are able to adapt the national curriculum content to suit the needs of our learners of any stage. The Talk for Writing approach enables children to read and write independently for a variety of audiences and purposes within different subjects.





Maths: At TEA, We use White Rose Maths as our main scheme of work to teach Mathematics. White Rose Maths is designed to follow the National Curriculum of England, and encompasses a Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract journey to ensure learners achieve Mastery in Mathematics. In Key Stage 2, pupils are encouraged to consider how mathematics can be used in a real life context, whereby through the implementation of a variety of resources and strategies, pupils are able to apply different mathematical concepts to solve problems. 





Science: In Key Stage 2, we study a variety of Science topics which incorporate Biology, Chemistry and Physics focuses. We strive to make Science an interactive, engaging subject with a balance between practical experiments and written tasks. We encourage our pupils to think scientifically and make links to real life situations and the world around them. As part of our Science week each year, we hold a Science Fayre where children compete with each other and have careers talks from professionals who work in scientific fields.



ICT:


The way we communicate, and access information have changed drastically and therefore ICT will be at the centre of a child’s learning. At TEA we strive for our ICT lessons to promote higher-order thinking skills, enhance subject learning, improve engagement and encourage collaboration. Children are fascinated with technology and it encourages and motivates them to learn in the classroom. It is important for children to engage with ICT so that they are prepared for an integrated society and that they use lCT as a tool for lifelong learning.
