Killowen Primary key stage 2 class

We are currently keeping in line with statutory requirements for the implementation of the revised curriculum.  However, we are already a step ahead as we have been piloting one of its main components – Assessment for Learning. As well as the main curriculum areas in Killowen we offer:

Jolly Phonics – a system of learning sounds which suits every type of learner


Guided Reading – a technique to really teach children to continually improve their reading


Accelerated Reading – Encourages independent reading where children set personal targets and enjoy taking quizzes.


Primary Movement – helps switch off any reflexes from childhood which should not have been retained and may hinder development


 U.I.C.T. – computers in every classroom means I.C.T. is integrated into all curricular areas. 1:1 use of iPads in every classroom.


Swimming - from P5.  We benefit from expert coaching in a wide range of sports and children participate in various teams

–see our link to after schools!


Spanish – all classes


Philosophy – P4 - P7

Developing a community of enquiry
