Before a child starts school he/she has already learnt a great deal. This pre-school learning has no artificial separation into individual subjects and learning takes place in an integrated way with activity an key feature.
The school builds on this experience providing opportunities for learning though play and through collaborative and interactive tasks. Teachers vary their approach according to the needs of the individuals in their class at any one point in time.
Appropriate use is made of whole class teaching, group teaching (ability, social or mixed ability groups) and individual teaching depending on the needs of the learner.
