The primary section at BISUL is divided into two phases:
Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and 2)
Key Stage 2 ( Year 3 – 6 )
The Curriculum in the Primary section provides pupils with an introduction to the essential knowledge that they need to become educated citizens. It helps develop learners who are confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged.
The three core subjects are English, Mathematics and Science.
The aim for English is to promote high standards of literacy and equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written word, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.
For Mathematics, the aim is for the pupils to become fluent in the fundamentals of maths, to reason mathematically and solve problems. Pupils learn through discovery and discussion, in a variety of fun practical activities and games.
The National Curriculum for Science aims to ensure that pupils develop their understanding of the nature, through different types of enquiries, investigations and experiments that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them.
From the early years, pupils learn basic History and Geography. They are introduced to a foreign language and computers. They learn Art, Music and Design and Technology, they have Physical Education, Dance and Drama and Religious Education classes as well.
Parents can communicate with each other and members of the school staff via Prymus- online register
At the end of the winter and summer term parents receive a school report, which for each subject consists of a mark and description of the child’s progress.
As British International School of the University of Łódź is a part of Cambridge Primary, a Cambridge Assessment International Education programme, http://www.cambridgeinternational.org/programmes-and-qualifications/cambridge-primary/, in Year 6, the pupils take Cambridge Primary Checkpoint tests. They test their skills, knowledge and understanding of English, Mathematics and Science.
