The LFS lower school language arts program guides students to becoming strong, confident, and joyful lifelong readers, speakers, writers, and listeners.
History and Social Studies
Through the history curriculum, students will learn about their place in time and space by curating a holistic understanding of the passage of time.
Confident, excited, strong, and flexible are the four key words that guide our community of young mathematicians at LFS.
The LFS science program is hands-on and experiential. We encourage students to ask questions, experiment, build, plan, and play.
Lower school students engage with Spanish on an immersive level, encouraging interaction with the language and the development of listening and speaking skills.
Lower school students will work with Spanish songs, stories, and games to get them interacting with the language in an immersive and conversational context. The Spanish curriculum is developed with native speakers and new learners in mind, to accommodate all members of the Lancaster community. Students will be involved in Spanish 4 times a week for 20-45 minutes in each class.
Through games and conversations, new vocabulary will be regularly introduced to learners and will be continually reinforced with continued interaction. The goal of the Spanish curriculum is to make students excited about and familiar with the language, and to build foundational conversational skills that will aid them in further language development.
We chose to focus on Spanish as a world language to serve the Lancaster community, and to better equip our students to be active and knowledgable global citizens.
