Children in our Primary class enter a different stage in their lives and development. They experience the much wider environments of Mathematics, Reading and Writing, and Life in General. Your child takes responsiblity for the care of their classroom and for their own learning. Our teachers guide and facilitate their learning in both interesting and intriguing ways. Your child will develop enthusiasm for their school and for learning about the world in which they live.
Firstly, the basic skills of Mathematics and Language, where your child use’s Montessori materials to introduce various concepts.
Secondly, our teachers recount narratives about how the Universe, Life and Civilisation came into being. Through these narratives, the topics of Science, History, Geography, Geology, Biology, Zoology, Astronomy, Archaeology, Botany, Physics, Chemistry, and many others are covered.
Thereafter, your child will investigate individually, or in groups. Through their own research they will develop skills of “how to use a library”, “how to work computers and the Internet”, and improve their communication abilities. A day’s schedule consists of uninterrupted classroom work in the morning, followed after lunch by activity sessions covering Physical Education, Dance, Music, Art, Bahasa Indonesia, Religious Studies, PSHE, cooking, or working with Computers.
There are also a wide range of other after school activities.
Children at this age need to venture out into the wider environment beyond school. To facilitate this your child will go on field trips and work on local community projects, learning about their place and their responsibilities in our world.
