Primary Years at EHM

The EtonHouse Malaysia academic programme is developed around our beliefs about children and learning. Students are provided with an engaging and challenging range of learning experiences designed for the development of social, cognitive, emotional, physical and creative skills. Within a carefully constructed learning environment, children explore important conceptual ideas, and learn new skills. Students have multiple opportunities to communicate, collaborate, make choices, obtain and apply knowledge, and solve problems. As they develop these skills, students grow stronger in all of the subject disciplines.

The EHM academic programme is aligned with the 6 PYP subject areas:

  • Language: Students learn English, Mandarin and Bahasa Malaysia (mandatory for Malaysian students)
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Arts: Students learn both Visual Arts and Music
  • Personal, Social and Physical Education

Subjects are taught through transdisciplinary Units of Inquiry. The six transdisciplinary themes are:

Transdisciplinary themes

How the world works

How we organize ourselves

English as an Additional Language (EAL)
