Problem Solving Activities
These challenge children to think, seek answers and evaluate different solutions – whilst learning to work in teams with their peers.Teachers wrap-up problem solving by having students share their answers with each other during teaching time– both the correct and incorrect answers, reflecting on the different approaches used and consolidating the best ways to tackle similar tasks in future. Skills learned are then practiced individually during blended learning sessions.
Investigations are inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education. Here, the natural curiosity and wonder of children is capitalised on to create rich learning opportunities. Foundation phase subjects are taught against the backdrop of topics which interest the learners.
