WE TEACH NOT FOR SCHOOL, BUT FOR LIFE.
The Pre-Primary Curriculum at OPG World School makes learning flow seamlessly between indoors and outdoors and taps into the interests and enthusiasm of the young students. The curriculum comprises of seven areas of learning and its delivery is based on Early Years Foundation Stage. The seven areas of focus are:
Physical Development: Children are provided with ample opportunities to be active and develop their co-ordination, control and movements. They gradually understand the importance of physical activities, and of making healthy choices in relation to food.
Communication and Language Development: A language rich environment assists the young learners in developing their confidence and skills to express themselves, and to speak and listen in a range of situations.
Personal, Social and Emotional Development: The school provides an environment conducive to the formation of a wholesome personality of the students. They learn the importance of positive relationships and of developing respect for others; they expand upon their social skills and learn how to manage their feelings: they understand appropriate behaviour in groups, and how to gain confidence in their own abilities.
Literacy Development: Providing a rich literacy environment encourages children to link sounds and letters, and to begin to read and write.
Numeracy: Children are given opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers; calculating simple addition and subtraction problems; and in describing shapes, spaces and measures.
Understanding the world: Children are provided with meaningful experiences that guide them to make sense of their physical world and their community. The opportunities provided help them to explore, observe and to find out about people, places, technology and the environment.
Expressive arts and design: Exploring and experiencing a broad, varied range of materials, media, music, stories, technology and design promotes the creativity and imagination of the children. It also provides opportunities and encouragement for children to share about their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities.
