Key Stage 2

The Key Stage 2 (KS2) sets standards for the learning and development of children from 7 to 11 years old

Key Stage 2 Curriculum

Primary education takes place at both our Castellldefells and Sitges campuses.

The National Curriculum sets out the learning and expectations for Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6). Key Stage 2 fits the later stage of Primary school.

All subjects are taught through a thematic and creative approach, using many different teaching strategies with the children working individually, co-operatively in small or large groups, and at times as a whole class. At The British School of Barcelona we believe that learning should be meaningful and we provide opportunities to promote pupils´ moral, social and cultural development.

At this stage pupils are encouraged to learn, practise, combine, develop and refine a wide range of skills in their work. There are six key skills which enable pupils to improve their learning and performance in education, work and life:

  • Communication
  • Application of number
  • Information Technology
  • Working with others
  • Improving own learning and performance
  • Problem solving

We promote our pupils´ moral, social and cultural development through the Enrichment Programme, and with a wide range of after-school activities which provide additional opportunities for children to express and enjoy themselves at Primary school, not only academically, but also in sports, art and music.
