Year 1 (Fox Class) have had a very exciting week! We kicked off our 'houses and homes' topic by finding a dragon in the woods. It was very mysterious and incredibly exciting!
Early Years (Ages 2 to 5)
At Rome International School, we provide a safe, caring and nurturing environment. Our Early Years department follows the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, starting from age 3.
Our inquiry-driven approach fosters curiosity, a love of life-long learning and promotes children's social, emotional and personal growth.
The natural curiosity of children is a motivating source for learning. Play that is associated with academic learning is an act of ‘inquiry’. We believe inquiry connotes critical and reflective thinking that promotes the attainment of the intellectual capacity of every child.
As educators, it is essential that we allow children to play in order to allow them to learn in a manner that is natural and fun to them. The power of play as the engine of learning is a vital force for young children’s physical, social and emotional development.
In Kindergarten we are coming to the end of the Unit of Inquiry 'Who We Are'. The children have enjoyed building houses for a family, they role-played in the home corner, painted and drew portraits of themselves and family members. We also read books, sang songs and spoke about what mummy and daddy do.
