Our Kindergarten curriculum is designed and developed to spiral across grade levels based on Early Years and Foundation Stage Curriculum of UK along with the integration of Gospel values. This is a three year program which includes Playgroup, Junior and Senior Kindergarten. Similar topics will be encountered at various grade levels, increasing in complexity and level of mastery each year. Teachers strive to help students make connections across curricular areas to provide experiences that stimulate learning and developmental areas through an integrated approach to learning.
The six areas of learning and development
Personal, Social and Emotional development
Communication, Language and Literacy
Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy
Knowledge and understanding of the World
Students entering kindergarten bring varied life experiences, social skills, and characteristics of physical and intellectual development. They enter kindergarten with a wide range of individual differences in their prior opportunities to hear, see, and learn the language and alphabetic writing system.
A foundation of beginning skills are taught at playgroup and kindergarteners learn through guided lessons, direct teaching and the exploration of fundamentals with specific focus on the alphabet and letter sounds, phonemic awareness, and rhyming words. Game-like activities, decodable and stories allow students to explore all possible sounds and blends, creating phonological and phonemic awareness.
Medium of instruction
Deciding which language to use for instruction is important because it can affect the way the students learn. With globalization and the ease with which people interact with others across international borders, the issue of what medium of instruction to use comes up regularly. The medium of language used by teachers to teach students at JPS is English.
