Every term we base our learning around a Topic, such as Ancient Egypt, India or Energy. Encompassing the subjects of Art, History, Geography and Design & Technology the children develop a range of skills within context. They are also able to find links through the core subjects of English, Mathematics and Science. Supported with a range of field visits, such as to the Dinosaur Museum, Power Plant No. 4 or Tuul River, the children experience a hands-on learning approach to their topic work. This provides the children with purpose and perspective to their learning, making it more motivating, relevant and meaningful to them.

Our topics reflect a broad and balanced curriculum appropriate to children’s age and development.
