Methodology – Inquiry Based Learning
Based on student investigation and hands-on projects, inquiry-based learning is a teaching method that casts a teacher as a supportive figure who provides guidance and support for students throughout their learning process, rather than a sole authority figure.
Expeditionary learning is a form of project-based learning in which students go on expeditions and engage in in-depth study of topics that impact their schools and communities.
Game Based Learning
Game-based learning comes from the desire to engage students in more active learning in the classroom External link. Because they require students to be problem solvers and use soft skills that they will need as adults, games are a great way to encourage a “mastery” mindset, rather than a focus on grades
Theme Based Learning
A theme is an idea or topic that a teacher and children can explore in different ways in each lab and during outdoor play. A theme is based on culture, environment, shared experiences and specific goals within a lab.
Though basic themes will be the starting point in our curriculum, future themes will arise from events significant to each child and will arise from each lab. This way high standard of education and high levels of motivation in every child is ensured.
Children will be involved in planning the theme and taking active part in every step of the implementation. Teachers will be involved in the periodic observation, implementation and planning of the process of learning science, social skills, arithmetic, music, art, dance, drama, sports and self-help skills in each theme.
Scientific evaluations will be made and the confidential reports will be available to parents regularly along with a feedback on areas for change and scope for improvement.
A central element of the method is the “plan-do-review sequence” in which children make a plan, carry it out, and then review the results. This will be evaluated and consolidated in the feedback. The aim of this approach is to encourage children who learn at different levels to benefit from every session of learning without boredom or feeling overwhelmed.
