The children in Transition are currently working on the unit who we are, in which we are learning about caring for ourselves and others. Since the children love outdoor learning and are always interested in bugs, we decided to talk about caring for nature and all its living things. Then we came up with the idea of building a bug hotel.
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.
The Year 1 Flamingos have gotten off to a stellar start! One of our favorite things to do is read and create stories, so many of our activities this week involved storymaking.
