Key stage 2
Facts and figures
Between the ages of 7-11, your child will begin to grasp complex vocabulary, use language more playfully and understand that words can convey multiple meanings. You may notice that your child makes jokes, tells entertaining stories and becomes more expressive; particularly in the way they articulate feelings and the way in which they interact socially.
At KS2 your child will also tend to recognise when something is grammatically incorrect and develop the confidence to ask for clarification when they don’t understand. The language they form during these formative years is the foundation of the communication skills that will take them into KS3 and eventually into adulthood.
