Our KS2 Curriculum
In addition to the core subjects and non-core subjects the Junior children have the opportunity to learn a modern foreign language. Children in years 4 and 5 go swimming to Oldham Swimming pool for half the year each. As part of a government initiative all children should be given the opportunity to learn a musical instrument through the Wider Opportunities Programme. This is usually done in year 4 for one year only. The instruments are used for one lesson per week under the instruction of an Oldham Music Centre Peripatetic Teacher. Children also learn about Personal, Health and Social Education and Citizenship. The children are given the opportunity to learn how to develop friendships, to work co-operatively and to respect other people and their opinions. They are encouraged to achieve high standards of self discipline and personal integrity and are made very aware that each of them has something of value to contribute to the school community.
