Primary starts learners on an exciting educational journey. Typically for 5 to 11 year olds, it develops young learners who are confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged and includes assessment that proves and improves learning.
The primary section at BISUL is divided into two phases:
Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and 2)
Key Stage 2 (Year 3 — 6)

Teaching in the Primary section is based on Cambridge Primary – an international programme for 5 – 11-year-olds. It provides pupils with an introduction to the essential knowledge that they need to become educated citizens, helps them develop an informed curiosity and passion for learning.
The three core subjects are English, Mathematics and Science.
The aim for English is to promote high standards of literacy and equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written word, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.
For Mathematics, the aim is for the pupils to become fluent in the fundamentals of maths, to reason mathematically and solve problems. Pupils learn through discovery and discussion, in a variety of fun practical activities and games.
In Science, pupils develop their understanding of the nature, through different types of enquiries, investigations and experiments that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them. Science covers subjects such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Astronomy, and Engineering. The essence of Science is Scientific Enquiry, where students are developing understanding through experiments and fair testing.
From the early years, pupils learn History and Geography, to discover the hidden joys of the world.
The programme develops the skills of research, analysis, evaluation, reflection, collaboration and communication. It strengthens the links across English as a first or second language, mathematics, science and ICT Starters.
Students are introduced to Spanish, as a foreign language and Computer Science. They learn Art, Music and Design and Technology, they have Physical Education, Dance and Drama.
At the end of the winter and summer term parents receive a school report, which for each subject consists of a mark and description of the child’s progress.
Cambridge Checkpoint Exams
As British International School of the University of Lodz is a part of In Year 6, the pupils take Cambridge Primary Checkpoint. They test their skills, knowledge and understanding of English, Mathematics and Science.
