Off to a Successful Start

Early Years Scope and Sequence

Programme of Inquiry (PYP)

Through the Early Years children develop a strong feeling of belonging as they develop self-confidence and emerge into independent learners. An emphasis is placed on fostering independence, imagination, creativity and learning through inquiry and hands-on activities through 4 units of inquiry. Teachers draw from a plethora of teaching strategies including, circle work, activity centres, cookery, Art and construction in order to stimulate language learning and number readiness. The 2- voice model of language learning is implemented in this phase.

Each class has a French speaking learning assistant. The children learn to adapt to the two languages as they begin to differentiate the languages spoken whilst making solid connections to their learning. In addition, all children participate in Arabic language instruction.

The teaching team utilises both the inside and outdoor spaces to create exciting experiences for our youngest students.
