We teach the Cambridge Curriculum for English, Maths and Science and then the Revised 2014 British National Curriculum for the subjects. Here is some brief information about each of the subjects.
The Cambridge Curriculum
The Cambridge Curriculum has a framework for the following subjects – English, Maths and Science.
The aim of the Cambridge Curriculum for English is to help pupils to communicate effectively and confidently and allows them the opportunity to develop a range of critical skills in order for them to respond to different types of texts and media. It encourages the use of engaging activities in order to provide enjoyment and understanding.
The Cambridge Curriculum for Maths explores five key areas: number, geometry, measure, handling data and problem solving. It allows the pupils to focus on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships. This developed through the using and applying of mathematical knowledge and understanding.
The Science Curriculum covers four key areas: scientific enquiry, biology, chemistry and physics. By studying these areas of science a pupil will learn how to evaluate evidence, plan an investigation and record and analyse data.
The National Curriculum 2014
The remainder of the subjects taught in Primary, are planned using the National Curriculum 2014.
Art and Design
In Art and Design, pupils will be able to produce creative work whilst exploring their ideas. They will use creative ways to record their ideas using a range of media. They will develop their skills in drawing, painting, sculpture and explore other art, craft and design techniques. Pupils will also have the ability to learn about other great artists both nationally and internationally.
Through computing, pupils can understand and apply the basic principles and concepts related to computers. They will learn how to analyse problems using computer related terms and will have the opportunity to develop their computing skills through first hand experiences.
In Geography, pupils learn about their local area and globally significant places. They will learn to collect and analyse information that they gather from fieldwork tasks. They will also have the chance to interpret a range of sources of geographical information in a variety of ways.
Through History pupils will learn about the history of different countries and how people’s lives have changed over the years. We will take a look at British History and compare the country to Iraq.
In Music, we aim for the pupils to learn about different genres of music and review music from across different historical periods. They will have the opportunity to learn to sing and create and compose a variety of their own music.
Through P.E, pupils get the opportunity to develop their competence and confidence in a variety of physical activities. It allows pupils to participate in competitive sports and activities.
Despite teaching a British based curriculum, we always attempt to include information about Hawler and the Kurdistan Region wherever possible.
