P4-6 Upper Primary

Constantly Evolving

Our teaching methods and curriculum are constantly evolving; however, our aim remains constant – to give pupils an exceptional education, memorable experiences and firm foundations for the future.

A Broadening Curriculum

In Primary Four our pupils move to upper Primary, they move upstairs in the Primary building and start to wear a tie as their daily uniform.

As the children move into the upper stages of the Primary school the core subjects of literacy and numeracy continue to be developed. Expectations and challenges become higher as the children are introduced to a broadening curriculum.

Context for Learning

At Morrison’s Academy our topic work is called, ‘Context for Learning,’ when our pupils are learning a new topic, we incorporate the whole curriculum.

Our topics can be anything from space, the Vikings, toys, fairyland or people who help us.

Our teachers incorporate the topic learning in creative writing tasks, artwork, drama, music and in everyday classroom life. Our pupils love to delve into subjects and be immersed in the topic.

Specialist Subject Teachers

In Primary Four, children benefit from specialist teaching in STEM, PE and Music.

In addition to STEM, PE and Music, in Primary Five pupils enjoy Art, Craft and Design, French and Home Economics from specialist subject teachers.

As an all-through school with one campus, our Primary pupils enjoy visiting the Secondary teachers weekly and using the Secondary school facilities.

Golden Threads

From Primary Four – Primary Six the Golden Thread subjects continue with every child enjoying lessons with specialist teachers in PE, Outdoor Adventures, Music, STEM and Learning for Life.

The Importance Of Play

The importance of play is never forgotten and our children enjoy playing in our safe, beautiful school campus. There is a variety of play equipment, a quiet area with benches and tables, and a garden patch where the children grow flowers and vegetables.
