We use a variety of teaching methods, and we emphasise on the element of free exploration in the games, which are designed that based on our students’ life experiences, interests and abilities. This methodology enhances children’s interest in learning, while stimulating their multiple intelligences.
Using picture books as a key teaching element, we have designed different learning activities to enhance our students’ language ability and the nine types of generic skills. We have further integrated picture books as a learning tool by participating in and promoting the“Integrated Creative Arts” programme, which incorporates visual, physical and musical artistic elements into our picture book teaching pedagogy. This enhances our teachers’ professional abilities in integrated arts teaching and establishes an all-around, creative, school-based integrated arts curriculum. The methodology and programme can systematically and effectively stimulate children’s creative education and nurture their creativity.
In addition, our school actively promotes the “free-play” learning curriculum for children. Children can choose the learning materials and playing methods based on their interests and preferences during “free-play” time. Thus, our school searches and expands the school toy collections on a regular basis.
Our school utilizes the display board area outside the classrooms as one of the playing spaces. Such playing spaces could inspire children to explore the outside world through free play activities.
