Introduction of curriculum

     Integrate the learning content and progress that students encounter in their morning lessons.
     Starting from the Primary 1 , students will be nurtured in their curiosity, problem-solving abilities,
      and creativity through a process of “Discover, Explore, Apply, Create”

 

For P.1 – P.2:

  •  The curriculum aims to foster students’ understanding of fundamental science
    concepts and develop their skills in mathematics and art.
  •  It also focuses on cultivating basic computational thinking abilities.
  •  Engaging activities and hands-on experiences are incorporated to facilitate
    learning and ignite curiosity, providing a solid foundation in STEAM subjects.
  •  Students are encouraged to apply problem-solving skills and critical thinking at a
    level appropriate for their age.
  •  The curriculum emphasizes the expression of creativity and the cultivation of
    interest in STEAM fields.

Through the STEAM approach, students are exposed to multiple content areas within
a single lesson. We are not changing what we are teaching, we are changing how we
are teaching it.
