Core Curriculum Areas
The Cambridge Primary English Curriculum Framework promotes an enquiry-based approach to learning to develop learners’ confidence, creativity and intellectual engagement. It is designed for learners who have English as a first language and can be used in any cultural context.
Divided into six stages, the curriculum framework covers knowledge, skills and understanding in the three strands, Reading, Writing, Speaking and listening. It also provides a solid foundation from which learners can work towards study at Cambridge Lower Secondary.
The Cambridge Primary Mathematics curriculum is presented in five content areas: Number, Geometry, Measure, Handling data and, to underpin them, 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.
The Cambridge Primary Science curriculum is presented in four content areas: Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Scientific enquiry. Scientific enquiry is about research processes while Biology, Chemistry and Physics are about sparking confidence and interest in scientific knowledge. Environmental awareness and some history of science are also incorporated.
Cambridge Global Perspectives is a unique, transformational programme that helps students at every stage of school education develop outstanding transferable skills, including critical thinking, research and collaboration. This innovative and stimulating skills-based programme places academic study in a practical, real-world context linking English skills with other subjects.
