The Kairos philosophy for Co-Curricular development is summarized by: ‘‘Opportunity, Development, and Enjoyment’’. Our programs across all age groups, cater to pupils to take advantage of the varied opportunities available for them, develop as sports performers where they achieve the level they aspire to be at, and enjoy being physically active so that it becomes a positive, lifelong habit. We promote positive values –like Sportsmanship, integrity, respect, effort, teamwork and humility.
Art exploration encourages an interest in the arts and aims to develop students’ cognitive skills and self-esteem. Children will be exposed to a range of artists and media in order to develop their own sense of self-expression. We will look at various art movements, including cubism and impressionism, modern art and surrealism. The focus will be for children to interpret these pieces in their way, not create identical pieces of artwork. We will look at using different techniques: sketch, charcoal, oil pastels, paints, clay, photography etc. The arts share aesthetic concepts like symmetry, form and structure.
Art & Design gives learners a platform to express themselves, sparking imagination, creativity and developing transferable skills. Students explore and push boundaries to become reflective, critical and decisive thinkers. They learn how to articulate personal responses to their experiences.
Cambridge Primary Art & Design is taught through a broad range of investigative, art-making and reflective activities. These include a number of study areas, for example painting, print making, model making or digital art, using the resources that are available.
Students develop creative skills that will help with many aspects of their future learning and development. They will:
Music occupies a central role in the daily life of our pupils. We provide daily, our pupils are given every opportunity to experience the enjoyment of exploring and making music on their terms. Our Music curriculum is designed to be flexible so learners can perform by singing all forms of music and playing musical instruments. We promote the musical development of all students including those who have existing musical skills and also others who do not have a natural aptitude. We encourage skills such as a sense of pitch or rhythm. Our learners explore the sounds made by different musical instruments, they consider the quality of each sound source, create short rhythm patterns, work together on a voice piece, and transfer rhythm patterns from voice piece to body percussions (stamping, snapping, clapping or tapping).we encourage our learners to think critically and creatively as musicians. Our learners are given opportunities to apply their knowledge, understanding and skills in as many contexts as possible.
Music fosters creativity and builds confidence. It helps learners to express themselves and shows them the importance of communication as they learn to connect with other musicians and with audiences
Learners explore music as performers, composers and informed listeners. They make, understand and appreciate music from different cultures, times and places, helping them to develop leadership and collaboration skills as well as self-confidence.
Cambridge Primary Music learners:
Cambridge Primary Music is designed to be flexible so learners can perform through singing and playing musical instruments of any kind (as well as found objects and music technology). We recommend that learners experience music from their own culture as well as explore music from other times and places.
The programme is designed to complement, rather than replace, instrumental or singing lessons. Technology is an essential part of music-making today. The internet provides learners with instant access to all forms of music and different kinds of musical instruction and performance. Our learners can use music software to create and manipulate their own and others’ music at the Lower secondary level. They can also use software to build and refine skills in using music notation
