Kindergarten 1 Curriculum

Exploration and Discovery

By the time your child turns 5, he or she is actively exploring and discovering an abundance of knowledge and experiences through our Kindergarten 1 curriculum. As educators, we want to be able to effectively teach our children a range of concepts and skills that ensure they continually make sense of relevant information and apply newfound knowledge to real-life situations.

Language & Literacy

We cater to our children’s increasing curiosities through our knowledge-based English thematic curriculum. It explores a wide variety of subjects and materials through age-appropriate themes that include self-discovery, animals, plants, environment, food, and festive celebrations.

Through the Letterland phonetics syllabus our children, besides becoming more familiar with the alphabet and their corresponding sounds, will increase in penmanship skills. Our structured approach builds their phonemic knowledge which in turn grows their ability not only to recognise and recite the alphabet (both upper and lower case) but to read, write and spell 3-5 letter words independently. Your child will also understand how digraphs and trigraphs work, and how to progress from verbally expressing their ideas to putting these down in writing.

Mathematics

The progressive nature of our mathematics curriculum ensures that our children build on past knowledge while gaining new information. Enhanced cognitive skills include the ability to classify, measure length and mass, and count sequentially from 1 to 20, using a range of multi-modal activities that make learning ceaselessly fun and engaging for inquisitive 4-5 year olds.

 

Kindergarten 2 Curriculum

Practice and Play: Getting Ready For Primary 1!

At 6 years old your child is beginning to make better sense of the world he or she lives in. Children at this age thrive on facts, hence our Kindergarten 2 curriculum not only engages them in a comprehensive range of topics through practical and play techniques, but prepares each child to confidently embrace new opportunities for growth – in the next phase of formal primary school education.

Language & Literacy

The knowledge-based Bright Juniors English thematic curriculum continues with the inclusion of a new topic on Primary One Readiness. Through vibrant practical lessons and school visits, the programme comprehensively addresses every child’s desire to know what to expect in primary school after they graduate from preschool.  

As our K2 children advance in their ability to listen and speak, they are also taught more complex sound patterns through a series of amusing stories in the charming world of Letterland. Blending and segmenting exercises enhance their understanding of phonemic awareness. Together with constant exposure to high frequency words our K2 children are strengthened in their ability to caption drawings by writing and spelling their thoughts independently.

With newfound writing skills that promote reading ability, our bright young ones are always excited to choose from a range of books for their reading pleasure. The Rigby Rocket Readers system enables our children to enjoy reading independently by reinforcing the reading skills they have acquired, thus growing their voracious appetite for stories in the written form.

Mathematics

Building upon our children’s accumulated knowledge of mathematical concepts, the Bright Juniors Kindergarten 2 mathematics syllabus includes more advanced concepts in patterning, estimating, standard units of measurement (lengths, mass), 3D geometric shapes, time, money, and numerical values of 1-100. With our child-centric, play-based approach, Bright Juniors educators teach and facilitate learning and children’s participation through fun hands-on activities, games, puzzles and quizzes.
