Primary (Year 1-6)

Primary Curriculum

Years 1 to 6 (5 to 11-year olds)

 

We use the Cambridge Assessment International Education Primary curriculum for the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science. Then we spice this up with other languages such as Kiswahili and Turkish, then subjects such as Social studies, Music, P.E, Fine Art, I.C.T, Mind games and PSHE.

Our students in Year 6 take Cambridge primary check point examinations by February/ March before moving to lower secondary stage. Then immediately after check points they are introduced to secondary subjects from March to June.

Our teachers use a wide range of strategies to deliver the Cambridge curriculum content. These strategies range from teacher led discussions, students’ presentations/ discussions, hands on projects, academic trips, competition in Olympias, Debates, music dance and drama activities, games and a variety of other club activities. Most importantly the school provides the latest technology such as interactive smartboards connected to high speed internet in every class to enable the teachers deliver their lessons and ease learning. Besides the ongoing formative assessments, all the students are subjected to summative assessments such as end of term and end of year exams. We prepare and deliver our lessons using a range of materials/resources aimed to make every learning session fun and very interesting.

Subjects

Learners develop English skills they can apply for a range of different purposes and audiences in everyday situations and in study. They will communicate confidently and effectively and develop the critical skills to respond to a range of information, media and texts with understanding and enjoyment. They will develop a first language competency in English.

Divided into six stages, the curriculum framework covers knowledge, skills and understanding in the three strands:

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Speaking and listening.

The curriculum focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships so that learners can apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject. It provides a solid foundation upon which the later stages of education can be built.
