KINGSLEY PRIMARY SCHOOL

 

Building on the foundation of learning and development in Early Years Education, Primary School begins formal instruction of English, Mathematics and Science.

Lessons are learner-led and strategised to optimise student development through continuous assessment, cooperative learning, student management monitoring and constructive feedback. Because a strong grasp of the medium of instruction is vital for effective learning, we cultivate a literature-rich environment to encourage good listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills.

Multi-sensory and experiential learning are extended from Early Years Education into Primary Education, with science kits, games, mathematical manipulatives, computer interactive whiteboards, and field trips for your kids to get hands-on with their lessons.

Excursions and educational field trips in Key Stages 1 & 2 are an integral part of purpose filled learning for all our students.  We believe these aspects of learning sharpen their ability to apply the concepts learnt to practical aspects of learning. Homework is provided throughout Key Stages 1 & 2 in a measured quantity.  Homework is given as a tool of measurement for the teachers to gauge the understanding of the students on the lessons learnt for the week and to consolidate the lessons taught.  Students are assessed throughout Key Stages 1 & 2 by the individual teacher assessment which is carried out in Terms 1, Terms 2 and Terms 3.  Students are also assessed based on assessment for learning to facilitate every individual’s progress in learning.

KEY STAGE 1

In Key Stage 1, students are introduced to key learning skills which are developed through hands on or experiential approach.  Students are given every opportunity to learn creatively in an enjoyable environment where they are nurtured and guided to grow into their full potential in their own capacity facilitated by the class teachers.  Various mediums are used to deliver the lessons effectively which includes technologies such as Computer Interactive Whiteboards and IT based resources.

Students are exposed to a broad range of subjects which gives them the foundation needed to move on confidently to the next level, Key Stage 2. The English Literacy, Numeracy, Science, PSHE, Music, Art, Physical Education and MFL (Modern Foreign Language) provides students with the skills and knowledge in a vigorous and fun-filled cross curricular approach.  Malay and Mandarin are introduced to help each child to learn two widely used languages of the land which gives them the cultural insight of the people of this land and the ability to converse in the language.

Students are introduced to Development & Movement which emphasise the need for movement and fine & gross motor skill activities to develop and enhance students focus, concentration, physical co-ordination to become confident learners.

KEY STAGE 2

Key Stage 2 encompasses a broad range of subjects such as English Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Humanities which includes History & Geography, ICT and PSHE.  These subjects form the foundation needed at Key Stage 3.  English Literacy and Mathematics are taught daily.

A strong focus on the four skills – listening, speaking, reading and writing is reflected in the teaching of English Literacy and mental, practical and application is the focus of Mathematics at this level.  Music, Art & Design and Physical Education continues to build on the creative and physical aspect of learning. MFL (Modern Foreign Language) is continued with Malay and Mandarin with a stronger emphasis on listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.

These subjects are delivered in an enjoyable, engaging and group oriented learning where the class teachers and the specialists facilitate the learning.
