Second Cycle of Infant Education

From the second cycle of Infant Education onwards, at Agora Patufet Infant School we work on English language immersion, which makes up 55% of the school day. This begins our trilingual programme (English, Catalan, and Spanish), and prepares the path to internationalisation. This is a stage in which we continue working and shaping the habits and learning begun in the first cycle, and incorporate others, such as the literacy process, the introduction to Chinese (from the age of 4), the start of swimming, project work, and the development of multiple intelligences.

The second cycle of Infant Education is an educational stage which attends to the needs of children aged 3-5 years old, and whose aim is to contribute to the physical, sensory, intellectual, affective, and social development of children. In the second cycle of Infant Education, the children develop movement and the habit of body control, language, communication, they learn about the guidelines for coexistence and social relationships, literacy… Furthermore, this is the stage in which the pupils experience full language immersion, and are involved in different school activities so that, over the course of the second cycle of Infant Education, they learn.

During the first cycle of Infant Education, the children at Agora Patufet learn to:

  • Pay attention and follow structured activities to develop their confidence.
  • Use language with clear pronunciation and use complex phrases.
  • Begin in the world of literacy: start to read, write, and narrate.
  • Use more and more sophisticated strategies to solve problems.
  • Understand the world which surrounds them.
  • Enjoy social activities, and friends.
  • Understand the importance of sharing.
  • Be capable of managing self-control techniques.

In the second cycle of Infant Education, the pupils at Agora Patufet Infant School become true explorers of their environment, and begin to establish the bases of learning and an international character, which can be reinforced at Agora Sant Cugat International School.
