Primary Curriculum Overview
We believe that the primary years shape students' futures.
As well as giving them the essential tools for learning, primary education is about students experiencing the joy of discovery, solving problems and being creative. Our aim is to provide an inspirational outward looking global curriculum that develops high standards of literacy and numeracy as well as stimulating students’ creativity.
English and Maths are taught every day to ensure clear progression; Art, Computing, Music, Physical Education, PSHRE, Science and Topic complete our curriculum. This provides our primary students with the self-confidence and skills to become lifelong learners whilst also preparing them for the transition to secondary education.
Key Stage 1
In Key Stage 1, there is a strong focus on the transition to a more formal structure of the curriculum and children learn the necessities to build a solid foundation for their learning. The curriculum is strongly based on learning through tangible activities giving students opportunities to settle into a more formalised classroom setting. Through the provision of a well-rounded curriculum, children are able to build the necessary skills to allow them to progress and develop at their own rate. The children are also introduced to the culture and language studies of Myanmar to help build on their knowledge of the country they live in.
Key Stage 2
In Key Stage 2 students are further challenged; strengthening and developing the skills they have learnt in Key Stage 1, thus enabling them to perform well in all subjects. All students follow the National Curriculum and learn through experience and inquiry based learning. This helps them to become more independent learners, allows them to take ownership of their learning and enables them to become secondary ready by the end of their primary education. During Key Stage 2 students gather the skills needed to become confident learners and show their creativity within their learning. Myanmar studies, due to the importance of the culture we live in, are further developed in lessons during this Key Stage.
