Children in the Primary class have entered a different stage in their lives and development. They need a much wider environment which encompasses not only Mathematics, Reading and Writing, but Life in general.
Your child will be responsible for the care of their classroom and for their own learning. Our teachers will guide and facilitate their learning in interesting and intriguing ways. As a result, your child will develop enthusiasm both for their school and for learning about the world in which they live.
There are three streams to the Montessori Curriculum.
The basic skills of Mathematics and Language, where your child will be using Montessori materials to introduce the various concepts.
The second being where our teachers recount stories about how the Universe, Life and Civilization came into being. Through these stories, the topics of Science, History, Geography, Geology, Biology, Zoology, Astronomy, Archeology, Botany, Physics, Chemistry, and many others are covered.
Thereafter, your child will investigate individually, or in small groups, the different topics that interest them. Through this research they will develop many skills such as how to use a library, how to work with computers and the internet, and improve their communication skills. These small projects will be presented to their friends and parents through visual and oral presentations.
Moral development is most important at this age and your child will learn how to cope with their feelings towards others in a calm and well adjusted way, developing their social skills to cope with all situations.
A days schedule consists of four hours of uninterrupted work in the classroom, followed by lunch and then two, one hour activity sessions in the afternoon covering Physical Education, Music, Art, Bahasa Indonesia, Religious Studies and working with the computers. There are also a wide range of other after school activities.
Children of this age need to venture out into the wider environment beyond school. To facilitate this your child will go on small field trips and work on local community projects, thus learning about both their place and their responsibilities in our world.
