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 Cambridge International Primary Curriculum, and Hong Kong Curriculum to achieve these goals.

The Cambridge international curriculum sets a global standard for education, and is recognised by universities and employers worldwide. The curriculum is flexible, challenging and inspiring, culturally sensitive yet international in approach. Cambridge students develop an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning. They also gain the essential skills they need for success at university and in their future careers.

Cambridge programmes combine an emphasis on mastering subjects in depth with the development skills for study and work in the future. We value deep subject knowledge as well as the conceptual understanding that helps students make links between different aspects of a subject. We also encourage students to develop higher order thinking skills – problem solving, critical thinking, independent research, collaboration and presenting arguments. These are transferable skills that will last a lifetime, preparing students for their future lives. They also make learning enjoyable and rewarding.

Our Cambridge Primary English curriculum at Rosebud encourages a life-long enthusiasm for reading, writing and spoken communication. Learners develop English skills for different purposes and audiences.

What will students learn?

Learners develop skills and understanding in four areas: reading, writing, speaking and listening. They will learn how to communicate effectively and respond to a range of information, media and texts to:

  • become confident communicators, able to apply all four skills effectively in everyday situations

  • see themselves as readers, engaging with a range of texts for information and for pleasure, including texts from different times and cultures

  • see themselves as writers, using the written word clearly and creatively for a range of different audiences and purposes.

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 to daily life.

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

The aim of our 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.
