                                                                                                                    At the heart of our philosophy is a firm belief that learning should be an enjoyable and enriching experience for children. We believe that by making learning fun and rewarding, we can help students reach their full potential and set them up for success in the future. We achieve this by incorporating hands-on activities that allow children to explore and learn through play, creating interactive games that make learning engaging, and engaging children in group projects that promote teamwork and communication skills. Furthermore, we provide resources and support for parents and teachers to continue the learning experience at home or in the classroom.

                                                                                                                    In England, the National Curriculum covers a wide range of subjects and skills for primary school students. Each aspect of the curriculum for years one through six is extensively covered, although some areas like swimming and computer science are not included.

                                                                                                                    For your convenience, the Key Stage One and Lower Key Stage Two groups are linked to their respective English curriculum guides. Additionally, each primary school year group has a fully mapped out curriculum, so you can use this as a separate reference guide to the national curriculum of England. This ensures that students receive a comprehensive education, preparing them for the next stages of their academic journey.

                                                                                                                    Discover Hands-On Education
