Applied Innovation - Regent International School | British Curriculum | Best School in Dubai
Key Stage 2 (Year 3 to 6): Applied Innovation
Gaining a Strong Foundation of Computer Science & Coding

Our bespoke curriculum enhances the National Curriculum of England, prepping students with a range of necessary digital skills of the modern world.  As a Microsoft school, our students are power users of Microsoft Office365, SharePoint, Class Teams and OneNote. They also use a range of learning apps to support and augment their learning.

In Computing and Project-based Learning, students have access to high-quality convertible laptops and iPads to effectively combine both traditional and digital methods of reading, writing and learning, whilst accessing the latest software programmes.

Our state-of-the-art X Lab, LaunchPad and 21st Century publishing and media studio, Regent Universe & Regent Galaxy provide students abundant opportunities & provision they need to create & innovate future, develop their collaborative and innovative character traits needed to flourish in life & at work.

Lower Key Stage 2

In Lower KS2, students gain a strong grounding of computer science and coding, developing a broader understanding & knowledge of the algorithmic process and computational thinking. They are introduced to SMART and block-based coding languages. They learn early word-processing and publishing skills, including Microsoft Office365, SharePoint, Class Teams & OneNote, not only for collaboration and publishing but also for app and website prototyping.

In our XTeam Junior, students take computing to a whole new level as they learn to apply STEAM thought processes. They invent and code their own physical games, toys, quizzes and prototypes, and become adept at analysing and solving problems.

Upper Key Stage 2

In Upper KS2, students broaden and deepen their understanding of computer science, learning a variety of programming languages such as HTML, CSS and Python to name a few. They code Raspberry Pi’s to and electrical components to produce real-world outcomes such as satellites and rovers They learn about Artificial Intelligence, robotics and SMART technologies.  Squads hard-code live websites to publish, celebrate, share and enhance both their class and personal learning, whilst others learn about design thinking processes to create solutions to challenging problems.

Students are introduced to a broader range of Microsoft Office365 features including Spreadsheets and Forms.  They develop leadership skills such as handling the technical lighting and sound for musical productions, teaching and supporting the XTeam Jr, and even publishing their own learning series on Youtube.

In the XTeam Senior, students expand on Project-based Learning, inventing and innovating with physical computing (codable electronics & Raspberry Pi) to create their products which we call “X”. They learn to use design thinking to produce answers to questions not yet asked – we call it “creating the future!”

By the end of KS2, students develop a strong foundation in digital literacy, design thinking and problem-solving as well as further their inventiveness and resourcefulness.

Challenges & Competitions
Throughout the school, Regent students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of coding competitions, hackathons, STEAMathalons and other events.

KHDA Report

My role model is Elon Musk and to become a tech entrepreneur.

Regent has given me the skills and confidence to get there. In a variety of STEAM & Project-based Learning projects, I have worked with classmates learning to code in Python and Java, build robotic vehicles, and construct IoT sensors. We have won multiple competitions in the UAE and abroad for our tech projects and talent. Remember my name because I promise you will hear a lot more about me.

RIS EYFS student

Possibilities are infinite at Regent for a child.

There are no limits to let my child’s imagination grow at Regent. He has become extremely ambitious in his thinking and outlook and what he believes he can do, which is great. Children are encouraged to take chances, try anything and not be afraid.

RIS Parent

The strong sense of community makes Regent more than just a great place for study.

It’s a great place for families to get to know each other and make new friends. The Regent community spirit is outstanding.
