Elementary stage builds on the practical learning that has taken place in Pre-School and Kindergarten stages. The activities are closely linked to subjects. These activities allow the children to be engaged in practical activities and investigations, providing opportunities for developing independence, planning, problem solving and decision-making. These practical activities provide rich and varied contexts for developing skills such as observing, investigating, organizing, recording, interpreting, and predicting, which are essential to learning in all subjects of the curriculum.
In this age group, we will:
• Offer opportunities for collaborative intellectual exploration,
• Support the development of self-confidence, imagination, intellectual independence and self-efficacy,
• Foster and understanding of the child’s role in their community and in the natural world.
