We use UK National Curriculum teaching and learning materials which are child friendly and created for International students.
At CreaPRIMARY we use a mixture of Inquiry Based Learning (IBL) and Project Based Learning (PBL) techniques to ensure coverage of the UK National Curriculum. IBL and PBL reinforce curriculum content in a way that engages the learner. Both approaches act to stimulate the brain in a way that promotes deeper learning and understanding of content. We wish to encourage our students to experience flow; a feeling in which they feel their learning is optimum. With the flow theory, subjects and topics are not time restricted and this helps each child develop at their own individual pace.

Students learn about living processes, materials, plants, animals and physical processes. They hypothesise and test out their ideas using practical and brainstorming sessions.
