What the KHDA says: "The large majority of children reach levels in English that are above curriculum standards. Children make very good progress to develop their speaking and early reading skills. They are able to say initial sounds and can use their phonic knowledge to segment and sound out simple words. Attainment and progress in writing is less strong. Children in KG2 are given opportunities to form letters and practise simple writing, using their early reading and phonic skills. The more able children are beginning to write in sentences."
"In mathematics, children develop a very good understanding of number and of shape. The large majority of children in KG2 can identify numbers such as, one more than, and one less than. They use practical resources to carry out addition of two single digit numbers. They can name basic 2D and 3D shapes, and compare their properties. Children are given many opportunities to practice and develop their skills in activities such as role-play and shopping. However, problem solving skills are under developed. The understanding of addition and subtraction is at an early stage of development."
"A large majority of children attain levels above curriculum standards in science. Children can talk about things they have observed, such as magnets attracting some metals, and are given practical opportunities to develop their independent learning. They can apply their knowledge to make real world connections and gain an understanding of different scientific concepts. Children in both year groups are developing confidence in using investigation techniques to develop their knowledge of their world. As a result, progress is very good."
