The curriculum at Rosebud Primary School is designed to equip students with lifelong learning skills and a strong knowledge base. We focus on creativity, problem-solving and collaboration skills. The curriculum we use integrates the British National, International Primary Curriculum (IPC), and Hong Kong Curriculum to achieve these goals.

The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is a comprehensive, thematic, creative curriculum for 3-12-year-olds, with a clear process of learning with specific learning goals for every subject, for international mindedness and for personal learning.

The IPC has been designed to ensure rigorous learning but also help teachers make all learning exciting, active and meaningful for children. Learning with the IPC takes a global approach; helping children to connect their learning to where they are living now as well as looking at the learning from the perspective to other people in other countries. The IPC is used by schools in more than 90 countries around the world.

We are proud to announce that we are one of the few schools to integrate IPC into our curriculum.

The National Curriculum for English reflects the importance of the spoken and written language in pupils’ development across the whole curriculum – cognitively, socially and linguistically.

English is both a subject in its own right and a medium for teaching. The curriculum is designed in a way to develop pupils’ spoken language, reading, writing, and vocabulary as integral aspects of every subject. For pupils’ understanding, the language provides access to the whole curriculum. Fluency in the English language is an essential foundation for success in all subjects.

A high-quality education in English will teach pupils to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others through their reading and listening. All the skills of language are essential to participate fully as a member of society.

With Raz-Kids, an online reading platform, students can practice reading anytime, anywhere – at home, on the go, and even during the holidays. All student activity and progress are monitored by the teachers through the online platform for assessments and student recordings. Students can select the appropriate level reading material, read books, listen to audio recordings, answer comprehension questions and earn stars in a fun and interactive way.  Raz-Kids is a winner of numerous awards, including Eddie Awards, CODiE and Teacher’s Choice Award for the Classroom.

Through reading, in particular, pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Literature plays a key role in such development. Reading also enables pupils to acquire new knowledge and build on what they already know.

We employ the Hong Kong mathematics curriculum to develop logical minds. The Longman Primary Mathematics series fulfills the aims of the mathematics curriculum. Through reasoning, enquiring and project learning, students are able to manipulate basic mathematical knowledge, enjoy the process of invention and apply problem-solving skills and daily life.

All students have four Mandarin language sessions each week. The curriculum is designed for kids to learn Chinese as a foreign language with Chinese Made Easy for Kids series. After completing the series, students will develop listening and speaking skills, be able to write a few hundred Chinese characters and recognize over 500 characters.

The aim of arts and crafts sessions is to develop creativity, the ability to appreciate art and to effectively communicate through visual arts. We nurture our students’ aesthetic sensitivity and cultural understandings.

The Physical Education at Rosebud Primary School allows students to demonstrate proficiency in fundamental movement skills, display positive attitudes towards participation in physical activities; describe the health benefits of physical activities and be able to express themselves and show creative thinking in physical activities.
