    Environmental Studies

    Children learn about a wide range of living things, materials and phenomena. They begin to make links between ideas and to explain things using simple models and theories. They apply their knowledge and understanding of scientific ideas to familiar phenomena, everyday things and their personal health. They begin to think about the positive and negative effects of scientific and technological developments on the environment and in other contexts. They carry out more systematic investigations working on their own and with others. They use an increasing range of reference sources in their work. In time they talk about their own work and its significance , and communicate ideas using a wide range of scientific language, conventional diagrams, charts and graphs.

    Children learn about significant people , events and places from the recent and more distant past. They learn about changes and continuity in the immediate area and in other parts of the world. They look at history and in a variety of ways, from political , economic, technological, and scientific, social, religious cultural or aesthetic perspectives. They use different sources of information to help them investigate the past both in depth and in overview using dates and historical vocabulary and developments. They also learn that the past can be represented and interpreted in different ways.

    Children investigate a variety of people and environments at different scales in the immediate environment and in different parts of the world. They find out how people affect the environment and how they are affected by it. They carry out geographical inquiry inside and outside the classroom. In doing so they ask geographical questions and use geographical skills and resources such as maps, atlases, aerial photographs.

    With age muscles and brain develop and in the technical area opportunities are given to a variety of crafts and technical projects. Time is also given to the use and application of the computer.

    Expressive Arts

    Art and Design
    With time children begin to work more independently or as part of a team on a range of designing and making activities. They think about what products are used for and the needs of the people who use them. They explore colour , material and environment and a variety of methods of expressing in different modes of art.

    Children sing songs and play instruments with increasing confidence , skill, expression and awareness of their own contribution to a group or class performance. They improvise and develop their own musical composition , in response to a variety of different stimuli with increasing personal involvement, independence and creativity. They explore their thoughts and feelings, through responding physically, intellectually and emotionally to a variety of music from different times and cultures.

    Physical Education
    Children enjoy being active and using creativity and imagination in physical activity . They learn new skills, find out how to use them to make actions, phrases and sequences of movement . They enjoy communicating , collaborating and competing with each other. They develop an understanding of how to succeed in different activities and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success.

    Life Skills

    Children learn to adjust the way they speak and write to suit different situations, purposes and audiences. They read a wide range of texts and respond to different layers of meaning in them. They explore the use of language in literary and non-literary texts and learn how language works.

    As time passes children use the number system with increasing confidence. They move from counting reliably to calculating fluently with all four number operations. They try to tackle a problem with mental methods before using any other approach. 
    They explore features of space and shape and develop their measuring skills in a range of contexts. They discuss and present their methods and reasoning using a wide range of contexts. They discuss and present their methods and reasoning using an increasingly wide range of mathematical language, diagrams and charts.

    Foreign Languages 
    Children develop communication and literacy skills that lay the foundation for future language learning. They develop linguistic competence, extend their knowledge of how language works and explore differences and similarities between foreign languages and their mother language/s. 
    Learning another language raises awareness of the multilingual and multicultural world and introduces an international dimension to children’s learning. The school currently offers Turkish and Spanish as foreign languages.

    Personal Development 
    Children learn about themselves as growing and changing individuals with their own experiences a growing and changing individuals with their own experiences and ideas , and as members of their communities within it. They develop their sense of social justice and moral responsibility and begin to understand that their choices and behaviour can affect local, national or global issues and political and social institutions. They learn to take more active part in their school and community activities .With time they will face puberty and transfer to secondary school. They learn how to make more confident and informed choices about their health and environment; to take more responsibility, individually and as a group for their own learning; and to resist bullying.
