We believe children are most engaged when they see, think, discover and practise in a think-along and play-along learning experience.
Our bilingual programme uses the liberal arts approach, going beyond English skill development; it enhances children's communication, creativity, critical thinking and collaboration skills.
It stimulates the active minds of children, builds good values in them, and helps them learn!
Inquiry Based Curriculum
We follow an inquiry based curriculum where children learn through exploration, projects and collaborative activities. Learners are encouraged and motivated to learn through experiences of discovery, experimentation and reflection - working individually, in small groups and in whole class.
The curriculum takes a 'whole child' view. Each learner may be at a different stage in their understanding and development to their peers, assessment is done individually.
Learning and development covers the following areas :
- Languages - English language and literacy
- Communication - listening, presentation and thinking skills
- Arts - visual arts, drama and music
- Science - early science and IT skills
- Humanities - Personal, Social and Health Education
We will cover the following themes throughout the primary.
- Who We Are
- Sharing the Planet
- How We Organise Ourselves
- How We Express Ourselves
- Where We Are in Place and Time
- How the World Works
A unit of inquiry is a block of learning based around one of these areas. Each unit of inquiry consists of a Central Idea - this is a big idea or concept. The whole unit of work aims to help the children understand this concept in depth.
Assessment is an important part of each unit of inquiry. Learner’s knowledge will be informally assessed before a unit of inquiry begins, during and at the end of each unit facilitators assess how well the learners have understood main ideas and how well their skills have developed in each area.
