Key Stage 1 Curriculum

Children enter Key Stage 1, following completion of Reception and begin in Year 1 before progressing on to Year 2 the following academic year. During their time in Years 1 and 2, our children build upon their strong foundations as learners and are encouraged to explore a wide range of topics. We believe that children learn best when they are excited and motivated in their learning, and we use a range of immersive, cross-curricular topics to achieve this. A year group will spend one half term (around six weeks) on a topic and learn a wide range of subjects such as maths, English, science, history, art and PE, linked to their topic.

Key Stage 2 develops and expands on the knowledge and experiences that our children have already gained during their time in Early Years and Key Stage 1. We provide a caring, safe, and stimulating environment where your child is encouraged to become self-confident and a self-disciplined learner. In Key Stage 2, positive learning behaviours such as resiliency, independence, self-motivation and curiosity are taught, modelled and promoted to our pupils. This learning behaviours allow our children to take control of their learning and engage in the wide range of subjects on offer. Not only do our pupils have high-quality teaching in the core subjects, such as maths, English, science and humanities, but they also experience weekly art and design, computing, music, PE, languages and swimming lessons.

We are proud of the fantastic progress that our children make throughout their time at Isamilo International School Mwanza and we thank you for taking the time to read a little bit more about what we do in the primary department.
