The primary curriculum has at its heart the development of core subjects (Mathematics, English, and Science). The skills acquired are transferable in other learning contexts and subjects, alongside developing the attributes of our children to be confident, active learners, and responsible global citizens. AIS curriculum is based upon the Cambridge International Curriculum but includes additional learning opportunities that we plan for all our pupils to enhance extend and boost the curriculum. We do this through club activities, sports, outdoor learning, social responsibility, adapting the topics taught, and an extensive co-curricular program. At grade 6 level our students sit their first Checkpoint Assessment before getting ushered into secondary.
Cambridge Primary English enables learners to communicate confidently and effectively, as well as understand and enjoy a range of information and texts. It develops learners’ critical thinking skills as well as reading, writing, speaking and listening skills in English.
Five content areas are explored in Cambridge Primary maths: numbers, geometry, handling data, measure, and problem solving. There is a focus on principles, patterns, systems, functions, and relationships so that learners can apply their mathematical knowledge in a holistic way.
Cambridge Primary curriculum provides a clear framework, teaching structure and objectives in maths, English, and science, with integrated assessments alongside teacher assessments to monitor learners’ progress.
This programme develops the skills of research, analysis, evaluation, reflection, collaboration and communication. These skills build a solid foundation for student learning, creating students who know how to learn, not simply knowledge. It strengthens the links across English as a first or second language, mathematics, science and ICT Starters.
As well as the Cambridge curriculum, students in both preschool and primary are encouraged and enabled through their learning to be creative, critical thinkers with an awareness about their developing world, and the changing environment and society. This holistic approach is centered around maths, science and English skills but is supplemented through ICT, languages, art, music, physical education, and Global Perspectives to enrich the curriculum and develop inquiring and curious minds.
Four content areas are explored in Cambridge Primary science: scientific enquiry, biology, chemistry and physics. Students have to consider ideas, evaluate evidence, plan, investigate, record, and analyse data, as well as consider some history of science and environmental awareness.
