Primary Curriculum

Cambridge Primary, typically for 5-11 year olds, is a curriculum framework to develop skills, knowledge and understanding in younger learners. Cambridge Primary provides guidance for curriculum development and classroom teaching and learning. The Cambridge Primary Progression Tests help teachers to assess children's learning as they progress.

English

Cambridge Primary English enables learners to communicate confidently and effectively and to develop the critical skills to respond to a range of information, media and texts with understanding and enjoyment. Learners who follow this curriculum framework will develop a first language competency in English based on a curriculum designed to be successful in any culture and to promote cross-cultural understanding.

English as a second language

This curriculum develops learners’ speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in English.

Mathematics

The mathematics curriculum framework explores five content areas: number, geometry, measure, handling data and problem solving. This curriculum focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships so that learners can apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject.

Science

This curriculum framework covers four content areas: scientific enquiry, biology, chemistry and physics. Scientific enquiry is about considering ideas, evaluating evidence, planning, investigating, recording and analysing data. Environmental awareness and some history of science are also part of the curriculum.

Curriculum

The Cambridge framework is the vehicle used to provide curricular for the core subjects of Math, English and Science. The foundation subjects are based upon the National Curriculum of England, they include Art and design, Geography, History, Computing, Music Citizenship and PSHE.

French and Kiswahili (foreign languages) are taught from reception class this is to give the children a firm basis of the languages from an early age.

The Cambridge and the National Curriculum Programme provide statements of content, knowledge, skills, understanding and attainment of target levels for all the subjects taught at the Cambridge Section, there is a huge range of resources to make this a reality and to assist the teachers. We strongly recognize that each child is an individual and thus we strive to personalize learning.

Our thorough preparation of pupils right from reception class to Year 6 has seen the Cambridge Section produce pupils who have excelled well in the checkpoint exam a glimpse of the performance is in 2013 our top pupil scored 16 out 18 and in the following year 2014 the top pupil had 15.4 this is a testament of how adequately we prepare our students for the check point exam.
