As clearly defined by the Cambridge, Our Curriculum, stresses on blending classroom learning with real-world experiences. Boosting the self-confidence of children is one of our main priorities. At Wise Oaks International School, we firmly believe that for students to learn effectively, the content of the curriculum, as well as its delivery, is of paramount importance. Our Curriculum has been designed to develop within students an equal measure of content knowledge, skill application and attitude building. The curriculum encourages students to engage in authentic inquiry, exploration and creative problem-solving skills. An extensive array of non-academic subjects also supports the curriculum with opportunities for all children to become involved.The school's talented and dedicated teachers, with linguistic and cultural diversity, play a central role in enhancing and optimizing student's learning.
For Grades 1-5, for current academic session, please take note of the following:
Going from kindergarten to first grade is a big transition for students and their parents. A first-grade education builds on what a child has learned in kindergarten, and also sets the stage for the learning that will take place in the years to come.Students entering first grade are expected to have an understanding and knowledge of basic skills in language arts, math, and science.
By the time students start second grade, school isn't new to them. Second graders start understanding more complicated ideas, like cause and effect. Students this age get better at using language to express emotions and ideas.In these years, students tend to be easily influenced by their peers.
At this age, thinking and problem-solving skills are taking off. Students tend to talk at a more mature level and start to explore specific activities that interest them. Most students this age,look for the reasons behind things, ask questions and seek explanation.
At this age, students have growth spurts - and a growing need to be independent. Fourth graders start to develop the ability to understand different points of view. 8- and 9-year-olds are increasingly interested in spending time with friends.
Fifth graders start to have active social and emotional lives. At this age, students may be trying hard to find their own talents while also trying to be and look like everyone else. Building confidence in Grade 5 comes from reinforcing values such as fairness and emotional awareness. Helping students to stay socially aware plays a major part in their confidence especially with how students feel about making mistakes and peer interactions.
