Curriculum

Primary

Our curriculum at Norwich is based on the National Curriculum for England, Wales and Northern Ireland adapted to our international setting and our Values. We enhance the curriculum with a provision for mindfulness and with a deliberate focus on Mandarin. Students in Primary (Years 1 to 6) access Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum.

 

The Homeroom teachers in Primary deliver the English, Mathematics, ICT and Connected Learning (Geography, History and Science) aspects of the National Curriculum, augmented with specialist teachers of Thai, Mandarin, Music, Art, Physical Education / Swimming and Mindfulness. Each Friday morning there is also an Assembly.

 

The specialist lessons in Primary are:

Year 1 – 9 specialist lessons: Mindfulness, Music, 2 periods of Physical Education or Swimming, 2 periods of Mandarin and 3 periods of Thai. Students have an afternoon break.

 

Year 2 – 10 specialist lessons: Mindfulness, Music, 2 periods of Physical Education or Swimming, 2 periods of Mandarin and 4 periods of Thai. Students may have an afternoon break, the Homeroom teacher decides if it is necessary.

Year 3 and 4 – 11 specialist lessons: Mindfulness, Music, 2 periods of Physical Education or Swimming, 3 periods of Mandarin and 4 periods of Thai.

 

Year 5 and 6 – 13 specialist lessons: Mindfulness, Music, Art, 2 periods of Physical Education or Swimming, 4 periods of both Thai and Mandarin.
