Developing life skills

Our courses support children in their physical, personal, social and emotional development as well as in developing important life skills such as creativity, leadership and critical thinking. There are specially formulated activities and engagement with a variety of media to help children gain essential life skills naturally. We developed our six key life skills according to the ‘6Cs’ framework developed by Fullan and Langworthy (2013), and UNESCO’s transversal skills (2013)

Classroom experience

We use a variety of stimulating materials and activities such as games, music and tasks that employ logic and higher-order thinking to appeal to different learning styles and multiple intelligence inclinations.

Collaboration and interaction between children and teachers create an environment where children are free to express themselves and ask questions. Children will love these types of lessons!

See your child's progression

Parents will be able to see their child’s progress via modular assessment of in-class tasks with feedback every four to six lessons and automatically-marked online grammar and vocabulary activities.

A final communicative task with measurable outcomes e.g. a project, writing task or presentation will be done at the end of each module to measure the progress of your child.

Supporting materials available online

The learning activities on the Primary Plus portal are specially designed for grammar and vocabulary training with language learning games that unlock once students reach a certain level of progress.
