Russian at Haileybury Astana is one of the three languages in Years 1-6. As the school is new, pupils come from different schools (with Russian and Kazakh language teaching). At Haileybury Astana the differentiated groups are now formed according to the level of grammatical knowledge, previously studied in local schools.
We operate by a modified curriculum programme currently used in the Republic of Kazakhstan. In lessons of Russian as a native language the textbooks and the materials recommended by the Ministry of Education of Republic Kazakhstan are used. For lessons of Russian as a foreign language textbooks and associated materials are used, they are published in Russia where the methodical base for teaching Russian as a foreign language is produced.
