The Primary School works closely with our Early Years section to ensure we achieve a successful transition into KS1 primary. Innovation is at the heart of all that we do at the Grammar School and our students are actively challenged.
KS1 (Years 1 and 2)
The School follows the English National Curriculum, but has a more flexible approach, as it is mindful of the local educational needs, culture and the UAE National Agenda. The curriculum is designed around active learning and critical thinking to help develop each individual child. We want our students to be creative, caring and confident members of the Grammar School family.
KS 2 (Years 3 to 6)
Key Stage 2 curriculum covers a four year learning journey which develops and identifies individual skills and strengths. In Years 3 to 6, children as well as having a class teacher are also taught by specialist teachers in subject-specific rooms, such as the Art Room, the Computing and Science Laboratories. We are not only about academic achievement but also develop skills in sport, music and performing arts. This prepares them at an early age for the system which is common in Secondary Schools, thus ensuring a smooth transition from Year 6 to Year 7.
THE SEVEN AREAS OF LEARNING EXPECTATIONS:
- Communication and Language
- Mathematical Development
- Physical Development
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Knowledge and Understanding of the World (Science, ICT, Environment, Social Studies, Geography and History)
- Expressive Arts and Design
We carefully monitor and assess each child’s development. Parents are informed, on a regular basis, about their child’s progress and we welcome input from all our parents.
