Lanna International Primary School (ages 5 -11) builds on the foundations of our Early Years programme, with the emphasis on the development of the whole child: supporting the social and intellectual development of each individual student. Encompassing a wide range of academic and extra-curricular opportunities, Lanna Primary brings out the best of each child with small class sizes, experienced and dedicated teachers and virtually non-existent discipline problems. Lanna students truly enjoy going to school!
The curriculum in Lanna International Primary School is based on the National Curriculum of England and taught through both the Cambridge Primary Curriculum for English, Mathematics and the theme based, cross curricular International Primary Curriculum.
Lanna International Primary School recognises that English and Mathematics are core subjects and form the foundation for lifelong learning. Our qualified international teachers, adapt the Cambridge Primary Curriculum which aligns with the learning objectives as set in the UK National Curriculum. In each of these curriculum areas, every child is valued and receives positive encouragement to develop their skills. Where appropriate we ensure that lessons are multi-sensory and interactive and therefore encourages the development of well rounded learners.
We have also adopted the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) approach to augment the solid academic framework of the National Curriculum, recognising that our students come from a wide variety of international and cultural backgrounds and that the pace of change in the world in which they are growing up is fast.
To address the challenges that this entails the IPC curriculum was developed to prepare children to be independent 21st century learners; experienced and equipped to work in cooperation with others, seeing connections between different subject matters, and motivated to ask questions and seek answers using a variety of approaches. Linking subjects means that children can make different connections in their learning. The more connections the brain can make, the more effectively a child can learn.
Lanna International Primary School adopts a broad and balanced curriculum which is supported by a strong team of specialist teachers: Art, Drama, Music, Physical Education (P.E), Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) and Thai. With the exception of Thai, all specialist subjects taught at Lanna use the learning objectives, and in some cases schemes of work, based on the English National Curriculum and may also align with the IPC units being taught.
Lanna International Primary teachers develop activities supporting a wide range of individual learning styles. Students learn while working together and while studying independently to prepare them for further study whether they return to their home countries or continue in Lanna’s Secondary School.
