Key Stage Two Curriculum
As we are an all-through school, movement from one Key Stage to the next will be seamless, ensuring that your child’s progress is uninterrupted and accelerated. Children will have had many opportunities to meet, work and learn together during their time in the Academy.
The teachers in Key Stage Two work alongside their counterparts in Key Stage One in order to provide a comprehensive, dynamic and diverse curriculum.
"At whatever stage your child joins the Primary Phase of the Bridgwater College Academy, we can assure you that your child will receive the best start in life"
The opportunity for play and exploration does not stop in our Early Years classes. Across the Primary Phase, from Nursery to Year 6, we plan curriculum experiences to enhance our students’ learning. We use a themed creative curriculum approach, linking areas of learning and providing as many real hands on learning opportunities for our students as possible. Visits play an important part in enriching ideas and understanding, as do regular visits to our school from a range of creative practitioners such as authors, artists, dancers and poets. In Years 3 to 6 our students benefit from the specialist teaching of skilled secondary colleagues enhancing learning in French. Sport is delivered by specialist sports coaches.
In Years 5 and 6, children have the opportunity to visit Bridgwater College and Bristol University to explore educational facilities beyond the school environment.
All children are encouraged to develop to their full potential. Those that particularly excel in certain subjects, whether gifted or talented, are provided with a range of extra experiences whilst at the Academy, but particularly so from Key Stage Two onwards.
Sport plays a particularly important role amongst the after-school activities. Football, netball and athletics teams from Key Stage Two are regular champions in local leagues and competitions. At whatever stage your child joins the Primary Phase of the Bridgwater College Academy, we can assure you that your child will receive the best start in life, and the best step up to the Secondary Phase and beyond, whether it is to Bridgwater College, University or the work-place.
