We are very proud of our curriculum which has been shaped specifically for our learners and environment, to create irresistable learning!
At Si Ri Panya International School we follow the British National Curriculum. This is then adapted by our Curriculum Lead and teachers into a whole school 'Big Idea' each term, which is then divided into three fun and engaging 'Topics' across the Key Stages.
What are Topics?
Our 'topic' based approach to teaching and learning allows many areas of the curriculum to be connected together and integrated within the topic.
'Topics' help children to see how subjects are independent and dependent, enabling them to see the big picture of their leaning, make connections through and across different subjects and talk about a topic from multiple perspectives.
