Primary school centers on knowledge discovery, and application. Students' opinions in relation to what and how they learn are encouraged. Teachers are passionate and engage different techniques to boost students’ education. Precise learning objectives are differentiated according to each child’s abilities and thus academic progress is monitored. The students are aged 5 - 11.
Primary school has six classes:
Year One: 5 - 6 year olds
Year Two: 6 - 7 year olds
Year Three: 7 - 8 year olds
Year Four: 8 - 9 year olds
Year Five: 9 - 10 year olds
Year Six: 10 - 11 year olds
It can be a big change moving from pre-school to primary school. In Year 1 therefore, we spend a lot of time in first term making sure that children, learn the routines, understand what is expected from them, and most importantly, feel happy and secure in their new class. Whilst playful learning time is gradually reduced, the children still engage in lots of practical, hands on activities, using a range of resources to master different concepts and understand what they study.
In the following years the students are encouraged to undertake their work with a greater degree of independence together with advanced teaching methods and assessment tools. Students delve deeper into the core subjects; Numeracy, Literacy (English), Science and Humanities. Their skills in Information Communications Technology (ICT), Music, French, Art, Physical Education, Handwriting and Christian Religious Education are also cemented further. As part of the curriculum at Orel-Vine all primary students participate in the various clubs which incorporate additional modes of learning and skills development.
Throughout their time at Orel-Vine, our goal is to build a strong Christian and academic foundation for all our students. We hope that by the time they are in their final year of primary they have been molded into creative thinkers and innovators that are confident, morally intelligent and upright, academically competent and best of all put God at the center of their lives.
