The following information provides parents and prospective families with an overview of the curriculum content for the Foundation Subjects in Key Stage 2.
Great consideration is given to our regional needs within teacher planning and all children are encouraged to understand how our locality relates to the rest of the world, thinking and enquiring as future world citizens.
Children are encouraged to develop self-motivation and encouraged to capture ‘Excellence and Enjoyment’.
The curriculum is divided into core and foundation subjects as follows:
- Core Subjects: Mathematics, English and Science
- Foundation Subjects: Geography, History, ICT, Art and Design, Design Technology, Physical Education, Music, Spanish, French, Drama and Citizenship
From time to time this content will see a process of appraisal and update. In line with a ‘Creative Curriculum’, a topic based approach to learning is developed, where cross curricular themes are integrated to enable relevance.
It is our team goal to provide inspiration and a meaningful approach to learning. We are particularly driven to focus on local and global issues and the International communities that we serve, adapting the curriculum to meet these needs in a holistic way.
Children are given the tools to be an integral part of the learning process and the confidence to perform successfully beyond The International School of the Turks and Caicos Islands.
