Our Teaching Methods

Experiential way of learning is more effective through participation actively with hands on experiences .That is why, most of our teaching methods are hand on for example; children enjoyed the science camp experiences because they are able to hold, smell and cut the "materials " . Children are also given the chance to boil the soup which shows the changes from solid to liquid .Children go through sensorial experience from this experience.

Before my teaching was based on just reading, spelling and writing, e.g. workbooks, text book and exercise book .There was hardly any hands on or act on experience or activities.

Now , I know that children learn best from real experiences and that children do not separate their learning into different subjects but they learn from everything that happens to them and around them.
