Influenced by progressive pedagogy, metacognition and primary education best practice, the IPC is tailored to fit the children’s needs while developing their knowledge, skills and understanding.
At CHIS, teachers use the thematic units to create fun and engaging learning opportunities that enable students to make connections between subjects and the world around them.
We strongly believe in developing our students’ personal qualities and characteristics including international mindedness and global competency.
To begin the Academic Year, our students had exciting IPC Entry Points this week. The Entry Point provides an exciting introduction to the learning that is to follow and is used to spark their imagination and creativity.
The Year 1,3 and 5 started off with units about Plants. Students of these year groups had a great start learning about plants around them.
Our youngest learners at school made ‘Herby Heads’, the Year 3’s planted vegetables in our Primary Garden and the Year 5’s went on an adventurous trip to the Pelangi Park to investigate the types of plants that grow in our climate.
The Year 2, 4 and 6 kick started the year by learning about habitats. The Year 2’s, enjoyed fixing puzzles on animals and plants and studied about the suitable habitats for them.
The Year 4’s were treated to a virtual trip to the Sea-Life Aquarium whereas our Year 6 students took on a virtual trip to learn about animals, plants and their amazing habitats.
All students will be learning about two Personal Learning Goals and the focus for this Learning Cycle is being Respectful and Collaborators.
We are looking forward to seeing the students experiencing the ‘Joy of Learning at CHIS’. What an exciting start by the teachers and students!
