The Primary School is structured into two National Curriculum Key Stages known as Key Stage One (Years 1 and 2) and Key Stage Two (Years 3 to 6)
|KEY STAGE 1||AGES|
|Year 1||5-6years of age|
|Year 2||6-7 years of age|
In all subjects, planning for learning in Year 1-6 is led by key objectives from the English National Curriculum for Key Stage one and two. These focus on broadening and deepening knowledge, understanding and skills in each area of the curriculum.
The curriculum areas covered in the Primary School are:
- English (including Drama)
- Topic (Geography and History)
- Physical Education (including Swimming)
- Art and Design Technology
- Personal, Social and Health Education
- Bahasa Malaysia
- French (available for non-Malaysian citizens in Key Stage 2)
SHARING CURRICULUM INFORMATION WITH PARENTS
Curriculum Information Meetings
Each term parents of our Primary students are requested to join Curriculum Information Meetings. In Term One this meeting is an opportunity for parents to meet the teaching staff from their child’s year group and to hear what learning and excitement lies ahead for the coming term. Staff share information on the topics that will be studied, the teaching tools that will be used to assist the learning, what trips will be arranged that support the topic and how parents can best support their child at home. The meetings in the first term also provide an opportunity for parents to nominate a Class Ambassador. Class Ambassadors are responsible for liaising between the class teacher and the class parents and often support the class teaching in organising class events throughout the year. In addition, Class Ambassadors will welcome new families to the class and the wider school community.
In Term Two there will be a Curriculum Information Meeting explaining about one subject area.
In Term Three the Curriculum Information Meeting will give further information about an area of the Primary School, along with an Open Afternoon that will give parents the opportunity to tour Primary and see it in action.
Termly Curriculum Statements are sent home to parents explaining the learning objectives for each topic and giving helpful hints on how you can support your child at home.
Each Primary class presents a ‘Family Assembly’ at least once a year to which all parents are invited.
Alongside yearly Family Assemblies, children will present their amazing work through a series of showcases – ranging from small in classroom showcases to larger events in our Multi Purpose Room. This is a superb opportunity for parents to engage with children’s learning and take an active part in their schooling at KIS.
