Reflection VideosHear first-hand from our students what they think of their time at Tanglin.
At Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6) we have created a 21st century bespoke skills-based curriculum which not only enthuses, engages and challenges the thinking of young and inquiring minds but also promotes high levels of attainment and outstanding progress. We believe that by equipping our children with the core subject skills first and then providing exciting opportunities for them to apply their learning in a range of ways, we are able to cater for their distinct and unique learning styles in an integrated context. Alongside academic skills and knowledge, our key drivers of Self Awareness and Personal Development and Global Awareness and Sense of Community lead to an overall focus on our students becoming well rounded, community spirited and responsible, international young citizens. We do not believe that learning should simply be confined to the classroom but enhanced through a multitude of opportunities to inspire such as day trips, residential visits and acts of social service which enable our children to excel personally and academically. To find out more detail about our curriculum, hover over each of the subjects below.
Communication lies at the heart of our capacity to imagine, think and create and makes a crucial contribution to children's development as successful learners.
Chinese lessons are characterised by high levels of enjoyment, engagement and active learning. Children develop their knowledge and understanding of the language through a variety of interactive methods.
Art & Design
Art is not seen as a stand alone subject; it is fully integrated into the curriculum, associated with cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skills. Learning in art and design improves motivation, concentration, confidence and teamwork.
The Humanities subjects of both History and Geography are an integral and strategic vehicle that help drive our bespoke curriculum throughout the Junior School.
At Tanglin we are privileged to have some outstanding facilities, enabling us to provide a PE programme of the highest quality.
At Tanglin, we give children the opportunity to explore science in the local community. They achieve a deeper understanding about the natural world around them from their personal experiences and from seeing science in action.
We recognise the importance of supporting children in their growth towards becoming independent, confident and globally aware citizens with well-rounded social and emotional skills.
In the Junior School, the ICT curriculum forms a key part of our overall technology strategy, which aims to prepare the children for life in a society permeated with technology.
We have developed a rich mathematical curriculum that is accessible to everyone but at the same time allows room for challenge and creative thinking.
