Transition to Key Stage 2


At the end of year 2 children will make their way up to Key Stage 2 into Year 3. Children in Key Stage 1 may have had times in their learning where they have already accessed some lessons up in Key Stage 2, particularly in Guided Reading or Read Write Inc sessions.


If children have not accessed Key Stage 2 at any point within their time in Key Stage 1, at the end of the year there are bespoke transition weeks where children visit their new classrooms and new teachers.


However in Key Stage 1 we have a very similar routine and timetable to Key Stage 2 in order to ease the transition between year 2 and year 3.   

Some children may have additional visits before the designated transition weeks in order to help them with this process.
