Our Education Modes

About our International curriculum
The children follow The British National Education Key stage 1(Early Years Foundation Stage) based on ‘Desirable Outcomes” of areas of experience /learning.

  • Language and Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Knowledge and Understanding of the world
  • Personal & Social Development
  • Physical Development
  • Creative Development

The school provides the environment and a program developing cognitive skills that enables the children to process sensory information and eventually learn to experience, evaluate, analyze, remember, make comparisons and understand cause and effect by the end of the foundation stage – 2 to 6 yrs of age.

The curriculum is divided into three parts :

  1. Stepping stones sets out the early learning goals for each subject.
  2. Examples of what the children do, illustrates how the children are progressing.
  3. What the practitioner needs to do shows how the practitioner structures and provides appropriate activities

First-hand experiences and integrated learning in a fun way is the order of a day in the International sector of the school. Individual attention and developing the hidden potential of the children is focused upon. Creativity is linked with all areas of the curriculum.

All the teachers in all areas of school, attend in-service training, conducted every term to maintain the high standard. We have dedicated and disciplined, patient yet enthusiastic staff who work at bringing out the best in children. The teachers follow the “Positive Discipline” approach when handling children, which is being kind and yet firm.

Time: 8.00 am – 12.00 pm

About our National curriculum

Pre-primary Section:

The Learning Framework of Uganda (NCDC) for early childhood is for children of ages 3-6yrs. The Framework is outcome and competence based. Emphasis is on learner centeredness and provides for increased learner teacher contact time.

The school program is result oriented, with observable and measurable skills, knowledge, competences and values to be acquired by the children in the following areas.

  • Communication and language
  • Problem solving and mathematical concepts
  • Knowing and understanding of the world
  • Physical development/Creative development
  • Personal, social and emotional development pervades the entire Pre-primary as the focus is on the development of life skills in all areas of early childhood.

The children experience the world of IT – computer games, matching and sorting and painting. The school will provide printed stationary/printed activity books for the children to work with.

Time: 8.00 am – 12.00 pm

Primary Section:

The school also offers Primary education (UNEB) for students  6 -12 yrs,  from P I to P VII with a difference. Today, education has taken on a new meaning, different approaches are merged and integrated to suit a culture and presented to the children to become achievers. 

The curriculum is project based. Good grooming, Eloquent expression, Logic and Reasoning are some of the qualities the primary children will reflect by the time they leave the school.

The Primary section at the Hungry Caterpillar is beautifully structured to ensure broad based development of the pupils. Here the pupils are able to develop their cognitive, social, emotional, cultural and physical skills to the best of their abilities preparing them for their future school career. We believe that proficiency in Language, Arithmetic and Science is an essential condition for continued development.

We are in compliance with the requirement that good development of the pupils is an education system that sets challenging targets for every pupil. Hence we adopt an outcome oriented approach where the pupil and school performance is regularly evaluated.

A very warm welcome to all parents and children of The Hungry Caterpillar Primary School!  The term has begun with a lot of excitement and happiness. We welcome all the children back to school after a restful, enjoyable and productive vacation. I hope they are ready to take on activities planned for them this term.

Kindly take note of the information below for your child to comfortably fit into the routine of school.

School activities/ curriculum.
  • Our committed and caring staff is all ready and prepared for the coming term. They are always there in time to provide a warm and welcoming, learning/ teaching environment. In case of any concerns, you are welcome to discuss with the teacher or the management.

Children without proper dress code will not be allowed to participate in the activity. Also mark/ label all your child’s items for easy identification. These include sweaters, bags, snack boxes and water bottles.
Discipline at school
  • Most of our children have developed a sense of right and wrong, hence acceptable behavior amongst children is noticeable. They respond to the teacher’s instructions positively while learning and playing with others in a responsible manner. We like to work in partnership with parents in all personal, social and emotional behavior of the child in case of any disciplinary issues. 
Term Exams/ Continuous assessment.
  • Assessment is integral to successful teaching and learning. Assessment therefore reveals how far children are performing at school. Children will therefore write exams in the beginning, middle and end of term as per the regulations of UNEB.
Parents Email address/ Telephone contacts.
  • We request Parents to inform the school in case there is a change of phone numbers/email address. It is important to have the right record in case of emergencies.

The new term‘s   overview / outlines will soon be sent home for Parents  to know the class  planning for the term.
Pick up time.
  • We remind parents that pick up time for PI, PII, PIII is from 3:00 – 4:00pm. Pick the child on time to have enough sleep in preparation for the next day. A child left at school has no company – he/she becomes restless and tired. Children who wait for their siblings to finish, please ensure that the children are picked up from school latest by 6:00pm. The charges for late pick up after 6:00pm will be 10,000 ush per hour.
