Cambridge & Singapore Curricula
The Cambridge Primary Science Curriculum is the basis for both the lower and upper primary levels. It is taught for 8 periods a week (as compared to 2 periods for lower primary and 4 periods for upper primary in national schools). This syllabus covers a wider range of topics including all the required topics in the national KSSR syllabus in greater depth, with a few additional topics that are not covered in the national KSSR syllabus. At the lower primary level, a foundation in scientific concepts is embedded through engaging hands-on experiments and inquiry skill-based tasks.
The Singapore Mathematics Curriculum is adopted in the lower primary and the Cambridge Primary Mathematics Curriculum in the upper primary. Mathematics is taught for 10 periods per week (4 periods for the lower primary and 6 periods for the upper primary in the national schools). The topics in the syllabus are aligned to fully cover the national KSSR syllabus and additional topics that are not covered in the national syllabus. The Singapore Curriculum offers a wide range of learning experiences for the lower primary students as they explore Mathematics through a thematic approach which helps them connect their everyday life experiences with Mathematics. The curriculum also builds a strong mathematical foundation for the students as they advance to the upper primary levels.
The Singapore International Curriculum is used in the lower primary level and Cambridge English Primary Curriculum in upper primary level. The English Language is taught for 10 periods per week. Students master the language through the reading, writing, listening and speaking components. Through the Singapore International Curriculum, students are introduced to advanced comprehension and writing skills which are the ultimate in language learning. As students progress to upper primary, they learn to write stories and speak confidently in public through class activities. The school prepares students to achieve excellent grades in the UPSR exams in Primary 6.
