Key to Learning

  • SENSORY MATHEMATICS
  • Develops the ability to analyse the external, visual qualities of objects using sensory standards such as colour, shape and size. It builds the foundation for the development of mental abilities
  • LOGIC
  • Develops the ability to analyse objects and events, see their invisible sides, identify their most essential characteristics, think sequentially, draw conclusions, classify and systematise information
  • MATHEMATICS
  • Using visual models children discover the language of Mathematics and concept of measurement, compare different quantities and qualities of objects and explore the relationships more, less, equal
  • STORY GRAMMAR
  • Develops a love of story, ownership of story language and a profound understanding of story structure by following a specific set of procedures known as visual modelling
  • DEVELOPMENTAL GAMES
  • Dlaying in small and large groups children develop productive imagination, symbolic literacy, language and communication skills, flexible thinking, creative problem solving, self-regulation and self-esteem
  • ARTOGRAPHICS
  • Cultivates the essential skills required both for writing and creative artistic expression. Develops 'art vision' and introduces different symbolic tools - composition, rhythm and colour
  • VISUAL-SPATIAL
  • Develops spatial awareness and the ability to 'read' maps. Children look at objects in space, use symbols to represent what they and others see through visual models - maps, schemes and plans
  • CREATIVE MODELLING
  • Through shared activity children discover symmetry and pattern by manipulating geometric shapes to create artistic compositions of the world around them. Develops co-operative and social skills
  • CONSTRUCTION
  • Develops mathematical language and goal directed behaviour. Children analyse the structure of objects , plan, articulate their plans and execute them using wooden modular building blocks
  • EXPLORATION
  • Through games, stories and simple yet powerful experiments children discover important scientific concepts - states of matter, different qualities of substances and transformations
  • EXPRESSIVE MOVEMENT
  • Develops emotional intelligence, non-verbal communication skills, creativity and productive imagination through body movement, gestures, facial expressions and music
  • YOU - ME - WORLD
  • Using symbols and visual models children learn about themselves as physical, emotional and social beings; about the natural and material world, about living things and inanimate objects
