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.
