Curriculum

 

We offer an integrated thematic curriculum at Bright Juniors that is knowledge-based and allows young learners to explore a wide variety of subjects and materials. Our aim is to effectively teach our children a range of concepts and skills that ensure they continuously learn relevant information and apply newfound knowledge to real-life situations.

Simultaneously, our skills-based approach consists of the Bright Juniors’ in-house Mathematics and Literacy Programmes.

Our Mathematics Programme emphasises equipping our children with a strong mathematical foundation through heuristic hands-on activities, fun games and quizzes.  The progressive nature of this programme ensures that children build on past knowledge while gaining new information. When more complex components are introduced, our children learn to assimilate and accommodate new knowledge to accomplish balanced learning.

Our engaging Literacy Programme uses the acclaimed Letter land phonological series and Readers, to cater progressively to different class levels of children from Pre-Nursery to Kindergarten 2. Both aspects of the programme hinge on multi-modal and multi-sensorial approaches, which are age/level appropriate, and highly interactive, using music, actions, movement, songs, art, craft, games, role-play, rhyme and social interaction. Children are thus motivated to listen, think and learn.

Our children are introduced from as young as Pre-Nursery, to a series of graded reading that develops their level of literacy from emergent to intermediary and advanced readers. Using straightforward, uncomplicated language along with vivid illustrations and real photographs, our Literacy Programme aims to enhance our children’s confidence and love for reading and writing. 

Our language curriculum for Playgroup focuses on opportunities that develop language through listening and speaking. Recognising younger children’s shorter attention span, lessons revolve around music and movement, engaging the whole body, and using puppets to capture the interest of our little ones.
