IPC Water 

Over the next 2 weeks we will be following a unit of work which focuses on the theme of Water, entitled “The Power of Water”.


This unit of work is part of the International Primary Curriculum. This new curriculum sets out very clearly what children will learn – the learning goals – in three different areas:


  1. The subjects of the curriculum. The learning goals for each of these subjects are at least as challenging as anything taught in the curriculum taught in your child’s own country. In many cases, the learning goals are more challenging.


  1. Personal development. These are the characteristics that will help children become responsible, independent learners.


  1. International understanding. This helps children develop both a sense of the independence of their own country and culture and the interdependence between countries and cultures.


Each unit of work is based around specific targets derived from the learning goals for one or more subjects.


During this unit we will be focusing on geography, science, society and international aspects of water power.
