PRIMARY SCHOOL

A Strong Foundation for Academic & Personal Success.

Our Primary School curriculum is strong in both academic rigour and personal development. In Primary School, hands-on experiential learning, investigative work and field trips are a core component of daily life.

Students are given many opportunities to visit places of interest linked to topics studied in each term and make presentations to their peers on their experiences and findings. Students participate in diverse co-curricular, sport and enrichment activities, which develop their skills and interests, and shape their personalities.

Key Stage 1: Year 1 and 2 (Ages 5 to 7)

In Key Stage 1, we nurture a growth mindset and introduce students to more formal learning. Students achieve greater self-reliance, effective study habits, and learn to work and collaborate with others. Through extensive facilities and a warm, colorful and stimulating learning environment, our teachers provide students differentiated and enjoyable learning programs, rewards for achievement, and a focus on their individual needs so students build their confidence and learning skills.

The Language and Literacy program develops students’ written and spoken English skills as well as an ability to read with understanding and accuracy, and an enjoyment of reading. The Mathematics and Science program develop knowledge and understanding of how to apply math and scientific principles, and reasoning and rational explanations to understand the world and solve problems.

Hands-on, experiential learning, and field trips are a core component of the daily life of students in Years 1 and 2, and students visit many places of interest linked to projects studied in the term.

We employ differentiated teaching strategies to address students' individual needs. We have a strong team of subject specialists who work in close collaboration with class teachers and teach ICT (Information, Communication & Technology), Design & Technology, PE (Physical Education), Music, and the second language of Arabic or French. A third foreign language is chosen from German, Hindi, Japanese, Mandarin, Russian or Spanish is also offered as part of the curriculum during or after school hours.

Key Stage 2: Year 3 to 6 (Ages 7 to 11)

Sunmarke’s Primary curriculum in Years 3 to 6 of Key Stage 2 (KS2) aims to nurture confident and competent learners as well as good communicators. Students develop self-discipline and independence as well as respect, humility, and compassion for others.

We celebrate student achievement so students develop their self-esteem and confidence, raise the bar of their goals, and extend and build their character.

As students move through Primary School, they are exposed to more specialised resources and teaching methodologies and progammes fostering their desire to learn and allowing them to practise and master the skills and knowledge acquired so that by the time they enter Secondary School, they are independent learners confident of taking on the next challenge in their academic journey.
