Curriculum Cooperation For The Academic Year 2020-2021

The course follows iStage Young Performer I curriculum, but is modified and specialised to meet Lucton’s needs. Students will work on musicality, movement, pre-school literacy as well as emotional learning outcomes in Early Childhood Development. Besides learning technical skills, the course will boost confidence, communication skills, empathy as well as imagination and creativity.

The course will be taught bilingual (English and Chinese). Each session will start with a warming up, followed by music and movement games: Students will learn the basic-elements of singing, movement, and music theory. Students will discover their own musical potential (growing an interest and confidence to learn musical theatre/ singing / instruments), show understanding and convey meaning through speech and stories. Students will also learn how to work together and learn how to play different emotions with their body and facial expressions.

About Lucton Nursery School

Lucton School was founded in 1708 by John Pierrepont, a successful wine merchant. A private school with significant educational experience in Herefordshire, England, Lucton has undergone ups and downs of various tests since its establishment. But with over 300 years of educational experience, the Lucton Spirit - perseverance, optimism, self-confidence, has been inherited and developed by later generations.

Lucton Nursery School (Ruijin Campus) was established in May 2018, the first overseas school that inherits the three hundred year history of education from Lucton School in the UK. Our campus is located at No. 42, Ruijin 2nd Road, Huangpu District, in the city center of Shanghai, an area that combines the historical culture of China with modern life.
