The World is Our Curriculum
Young children are naturally very curious about the world around them and are 'hard-wired' to learn about it. There is so much going on, so much to see and to experience. Children ask lots of questions and notice things many of us grown-ups do not. This natural curiosity is a powerful motivator and one we aim to capture in our school whenever and wherever we can. We aim to create a 'spirit of enquiry' which builds learning from questions - whether posed by teachers or children. Questions - give purpose and direction to learning. Teachers can teach children the skills and knowledge to find answers to questions across the curriculum, whether it be through some hands-on, practical learning or through academic study. Through our invitational learning, we encourage the children to bring their own interests and experiences into their learning too. We believe that when children see a purpose to their learning (and what better purpose than finding answers to your own questions) they learn most effectively.
