Cambridge Primary, typically for learners aged 5 to 11 years, gives a world-class curriculum to develop learner skills and understanding in English, mathematics and science.
Cambridge Primary curriculum
Cambridge Primary English enables learners to communicate confidently and effectively and to develop the critical skills to respond to a range of information, media and texts with understanding and enjoyment. Learners who follow this curriculum framework will develop a first language competency in English based on a curriculum designed to be successful in any culture and to promote cross-cultural understanding.
The mathematics curriculum framework explores five content areas: number, geometry, measure, handling data and problem-solving. This curriculum focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships so that learners can apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject.
This curriculum framework covers four content areas: scientific enquiry, biology, chemistry and physics. Scientific enquiry is about considering ideas, evaluating evidence, planning, investigating, recording and analysing data. Environmental awareness and some history of science are also part of the curriculum.
Cambridge Global Perspectives
Cambridge Primary Global Perspectives will be available for teaching from June 2018 onwards. It develops the skills of research, analysis, evaluation, reflection, collaboration and communication.
