Elementary School (grades 1 to 5)

At the very outset let me have the privilege to welcome everyone to RISE Elementary School.

Since every accomplishment starts with the decision, I appreciate the parents of all our children for their decision to choose us as the artisans of their kids’ future accomplishments. We value the trust the parents have on us and intend to fulfill their dreams through their children. Our kids will not follow the paths created by others, rather will make their own paths and leave a trail behind for others to follow.

The elementary school is the place where the children are taught to expand their roots so deep that they do not tumble however rough the storm is in coming days. Every successful person once started his or her journey with an ‘A’. So our goal in the elementary school will be to make every kid worthy of success once he or she reaches up to ‘Z’.

SUBJECTS

There is a Cambridge Primary curriculum framework for each subject – English, English as a second language, mathematics and science – providing a clear teaching structure. Each and every student will also have lessons in Social Studies (History and Geography), Bangla, Art and ICT.

Core Curriculum : Cambridge Primary

English

Cambridge Primary English enables learners to communicate confidently and effectively and to develop the critical skills to respond to a range of information, media and texts with understanding and enjoyment. Learners who follow this curriculum framework will develop a first language competency in English based on a curriculum designed to be successful in any culture and to promote cross-cultural understanding.

This curriculum develops learners’ speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in English. It has been developed in conjunction with Cambridge English Language Assessment and is based on the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), used across the world to map learners’ progress in English.

Mathematics

The mathematics curriculum framework explores five content areas: number, geometry, measure, handling data and problem solving. This curriculum focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships so that learners can apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject.

Science

This curriculum framework covers four content areas: scientific enquiry, biology, chemistry and physics. Scientific enquiry is about considering ideas, evaluating evidence, planning, investigating, recording and analyzing data. Environmental awareness and some history of science are also part of the curriculum. There are two assessment options:

✓Cambridge Primary Progression Tests (marked in school)
✓Cambridge Primary Checkpoint (marked by Cambridge examiners)

Cambridge Primary Progression Tests

Cambridge Primary Progression Tests provide valid internal assessment of knowledge, skills and understanding in English, mathematics and science. The tests:

✓Enable learning to be assessed each year
✓Provide detailed information about the performance of each learner for stages 3, 4, 5 and 6
✓Enable teachers to give structured feedback to learners and parents
✓Enable teachers to compare strengths and weaknesses of individuals and groups
✓Are marked by teachers in your school
✓Come with clear guidance, standards and mark schemes
✓Can be used any time in the year, as many times as needed

Cambridge Primary Checkpoint

Cambridge Primary Checkpoint is a diagnostic testing service that helps your learners by giving comprehensive feedback on their strengths and weaknesses in each subject area.

We offer Cambridge Primary Checkpoint tests twice a year and they are usually taken at the end of Cambridge Primary. The tests are marked in Cambridge and each learner receives a statement of achievement and a diagnostic report.

In spite of all-

The famous Chinese philosopher Confucius said, “Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising up every time we fall.” The RISE elementary school will inculcate this very idea inside the children’s mind so that whatever the odds are in life, they will always choose to rise against those. I sincerely believe that once the kids rise up to the pinnacle of success and look back, RISE elementary school will be the best memory in their lives to share with.
