KEY STAGE 2
Number and Arithmetics
Number and place value is one of the important areas covered in KS2. Students learn to count, read, write, round and compare numbers.
Our programme of study covers key arithmetic skills and focuses on mental and written methods of the four operations.
At the end of each section, solving word problems of real life situations allows a consolidation of the learnt concepts.
Geometry and shape
Students learn how to compare and classify angles and geometric shapes including triangles and quadrilaterals.
This can be achieved through learning properties of shapes and measurement such as calculating perimeter and area of 2D-shapes, determining the appropriate unit of measurement to use or identifying related facts to deduce missing angles and lengths.
We teach our students to become more accurate in drawing geometric shapes and nets with the ability of using the given dimensions and angles to complete the task.
When encountering a new challenge, reasoning is one of the fundamental aspects allowing the use of different notions and concepts in order to find a solution.
Word problems and collective activities stimulate the pupils to enhance their strategies and extend their understanding of maths.
This enables our pupils to keep improving their skills in parallel in various areas.
