Primary Curriculum

Years 2 to 6 (6 to 11 year olds)

  • We use the Cambridge Primary curriculum across our Lower Primary (Years 2 & 3) and Upper Primary Phase (Years 4-6)
  • The Cambridge Programme is enhanced by Forest School in Lower Primary, Outdoor Learning in Upper Primary and is underpinned by a thematic units and project-based learning opportunities throughout the Primary School.
  • German and Spanish are taught in Upper Primary.
  • Our students in Years 3-6 take GL Progression Tests in English and Mathematics at the end of each school year.

Teachers use a wide range of strategies to deliver curriculum content such as science investigations, interactive, hands on projects, drama activities, games, informal discussions and outdoor learning. These strategies are used in conjunction with other more formal methods and ongoing assessments such as spelling tests, quizzes, writing tasks and tests. Our teachers prepare and deliver their lessons using a range of resources aimed to interest and inspire the students.
