Learning in KG at The Sultan’s School is based on the United Kingdom Early Years’ Foundation Stage (EYFS) and the Omani National education programme.
The guidance states that through well-planned play, both indoors and outdoors, children can:
The KG curriculum is organised into six areas of learning:
Toilet training – We require that KG students can use the bathroom unaided. In the first few weeks there will be someone to help the children in the bathroom and demonstrate good personal hygiene. However, we do expect increasing independence as the term progresses. We suggest that you provide a spare set of clothes to be kept at school, should your child have an accident.
Bed time – Your child will find starting school exhausting. It will be impossible for him or her to reach their full potential if they are very tired. We suggest that as soon as possible, you get them into good sleeping habits, including going to bed at a reasonable time (no later than 8pm at this age.)
Social interaction – It is essential that your child can get used to being with other children before starting school.
Independence in eating – The school will provide a healthy, nutritious snack every day. Typical snacks include cheese sandwiches, vegetable sticks and cheese cubes, a piece of fruit, Arabic bread and hummus or egg sandwiches. Plain bread or savoury biscuits are always offered as an alternative. We also provide fruit juice. Bottled room temperature water is available for students throughout the day. If your child has a food allergy please inform the teacher on the first day the child attends.
Preparing for Learning – Our curriculum here is a demanding one and it is vital that children begin to
explore and expand their understanding of Arabic, English and mathematics from an early age.
Reading and telling stories to your children is an excellent way to reinforce their appreciation of
language and understanding of vocabulary. Talking about numbers and playing with number patterns
helps immensely with early maths skills. Fostering a love of learning in your child is the greatest gift
you can give them.
