World Degree – Primary School Curriculum
Our Curriculum is designed around your child as an individual with unique abilities, experiences and interests. A comprehensive, problem-based basic curriculum makes learning relevant and meaningful for every child, regardless of their background. Our teachers recognize each child’s special potential and take an inclusive approach to adapting to different learning styles and needs. All of our students can enjoy a fair way of learning that encourages cross-cultural communication and understanding.
Uniquely International-styled, our Primary section offers a broad-based education, anchored in a rigorous bilingual programme. Our programmes are designed to ensure the child’s holistic development, in and out of the classroom, and most importantly, to develop critical life skills, sound moral values and competencies to navigate a fast-changing world.
We focus on building a strong foundation in values, knowledge and skills so as to allow the child to understand their physical and social world, be able to function in it and relate to others as part of a social group. Our curriculum framework is based on the International curriculum and taking into consideration the different and varied background of our students.
Our learning framework focuses on:
Language art courses that provide students with fluent speaking and writing tools and effectively process information through reading and listening.
Digital ability is acquired through the core mathematics curriculum, which can be complemented by a wealth of mathematics courses.
