As an integral part of the IB Primary Years Programme our Early Years curriculum takes a trans-disciplinary inquiry approach to learning and is inspired by the philosophy and practice of the world-renowned Italian Reggio Approach.
ELABORATING THEIR UNDERSTANDING THROUGH ALL EXPRESSIVE, CREATIVE, VERBAL AND MATHEMATICAL LANGUAGES
CREATING NATURAL CONNECTIONS BETWEEN MATHEMATICS, SCIENCE, DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY AND THE EXPRESSIVE ARTS
MAKING A FULL IMMERSION IN AN ENGLISH LANGUAGE CONTEXT
CHILDREN ARE GIVEN TIME TO EXPLORE CONCEPTS AND CONSTRUCT THEIR THEORIES TOGETHER WITH TEACHERS IN SMALL GROUPS:
- elaborating their understanding through all expressive, creative, verbal and mathematical languages
- creating natural connections between mathematics, science, digital technology and the expressive arts
- making a full immersion in an English language context
The flexibility in thinking involved encourages not only the development of proficient language skills but also the creative and lateral thinking skills necessary for success in the 21st century.
Children are exposed to the English language in its written form throughout the Early Years setting within imaginative and symbolic play contexts and teacher-led activities. As the child progresses through the Early Years setting this is supported and developed directly by the teacher to ensure the gradual acquisition of literacy skills needed as they move onto primary school.
