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. Children in Primary (Years 2 to 6) access Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum.

 

The Homeroom teachers from Year 2 to 5 deliver the English, Mathematics, ICT and Connected Learning (Geography, History and Science) aspects of the National Curriculum and Specialist Teachers deliver the rest of the curriculum. For Year 6 specialist teachers deliver all aspects of the curriculum. The specialist lessons in Primary are:

Year 2 – 10 specialist lessons: Mindfulness, Music, 2 periods of Physical Education or Swimming, 2 periods of Mandarin, and 4 periods of Thai. Students have an afternoon break.

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 – 12 specialist lessons: Mindfulness, Music, 2 periods of Physical Education or Swimming, 4 periods of both Thai and Mandarin.

 

Year 6 – all lessons are with specialists: Mindfulness, Music, Drama, 7 periods of English, 5 periods of Mathematics, Science, and Global Perspectives (Humanities), 4 periods of both Thai and Mandarin, 2 periods of Physical Education or Swimming, Art and ICT and they also have an Assembly or a Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE) lesson on a Friday morning.

Of interest to parents and students is our Primary Curriculum Guide for 2019-2020, which can be found here
