The Perfect Beginning To A Lifelong Journey Of Learning

The Primary Years Programme at Lancers builds a strong foundation for students to be active learners. By learning how to connect the dots and make connections on their own, students at Lancers are able to engage with their curiosity in a positive and productive manner.

PYP ModelWe steer clear of spoon-feeding or rote learning of any kind, albeit allowing our students to become independent thinkers while having access to a supportive community of teachers and friends. This way, students understand what their learning goals are and what it would take for them to achieve them.

A typical day involves studying some of the core subjects including Math, English, Science, Social Science along with special classes in Art, Music, Sports and Drama. Life outside school includes community service and field trips that make the educational experience at Lancers more enriching.

We all know that the formative years in an individual’s life are the most crucial. It’s also the time when our brains are the most active and able to absorb information like a sponge.

Therefore, at Lancers, we develop special activities that work as triggers or prompts for our youngest students to engage with their five sense organs better. For instance, a bucket of water, a basin of sand, and a few cups and scoops can keep the child mesmerised. As a result, the child is learning about volume and texture, liquids and solids. Similarly, our teachers ask students more open-ended questions in order to engage with them and have them share their thoughts and opinions in class. This allows for a more open, safe and constructive environment for students to learn in and set high academic standards for themselves.

LANGUAGE

Students read, study stories from different parts of the world and develop and deepen comprehension skills at Lancers. Language instruction and assessment is organised in around 3 strands:
*Oral language listening and speaking
*Written language:Reading
*Written Language:Writing

HOW WE ORGANIZE OURSELVES?

This transdisciplinary theme explores the interconnectedness of human-made systems and communities; the structure and function of organisation; societal decision-making; economic activities and their impact on humankind and the environment.

SOCIAL STUDIES

Exploring the political and physical regions of various countries, students enquire into the concept of regional identity, culture, national identity & stereotypes.

MATHEMATICS

Students at Lancers build mathematical knowledge and skills and explore the PYP transdisciplinary themes via the Students Books' inquiry-based activities that are rooted in relevant and realistic contexts rather than by attempting to impart a fixed body of knowledge directly to students.
