Our environment is set up with continuous provision which is carefully planned and resourced, and which is enhanced to reflect children’s interests and meet their needs.
Adult-focused activities become more prominent as the child progresses through the Curriculum Frameworks, so that by the time they reach National Curriculum they are able to follow instructions to carry out tasks independently.
Children in Global Indonesia School learn by playing and exploring both indoors and outdoors. We have an indoor play area, a First-aid room and large outdoor area.
Our environment is set up to appeal to the children’s interests and stages of development, and the resources available to your child are selected to support and promote children’s learning and development. No matter where a child chooses to play there will be opportunities to develop skills across the areas of learning.
Indoors, there is provision for looking at and sharing books, making marks, exploring making sounds, creating collages, painting and role playing, using tools such as scissors, pencils and paintbrushes and time and space to share their ideas with others.
Outside, the learning can take place on a larger scale. The children can experience nature first-hand in the garden and explore water. They can create structures on a large scale, working with others to create using large crates, poles and planks and develop core strength by moving freely, balancing and climbing.
Our whole learning environment supports the children’s development in seven key areas of learning:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
This focuses on the child learning to work, develop confidence, play, co-operate and respond positively to others in a group beyond the family.
Communication and Language
This focuses on important aspects of language development and provides a foundation for literacy. We foster the children's developing competence in talking and listening. We are a ‘lead school’ for ‘Tales Toolkit’ which means all our Early years staff are competent in developing children’s language, literacy, social skills, creativity, confidence, empathy, writing, problem solving and maths skills through the power of creating stories!
This focuses on the child developing physical control on both a small and large scale, their awareness of space and manipulative skills both indoors and outdoors. A positive attitude towards a healthy and active way of life is emphasised.
This focuses on helping children to link sounds and letters and begin to read and write. Systematic teaching of synthetic phonics is used when children are ready and show an eagerness and readiness to progress, having experienced a strong foundation of hearing and saying rhymes, stories and poems. The children are surrounded by books and print, and adult’s model and encourage the use of appropriate vocabulary constantly!
This covers important aspects of mathematical understanding as well as providing the foundation for numeracy. The emphasis is on achievement through practical activities and in using and understanding mathematical language.
Understanding the World
This area focuses on the children's developing understanding of their environment, other people and features of the natural and man- made world. It provides a foundation for historical, geographical, scientific and technological learning. We want the children to develop positive attitudes to discovery and experimentation and to develop the ability to predict, observe and communicate their observations, solve problems and explore the world around them.
Expressive Arts and Design
This focuses on the development of the child's imagination and their ability to express ideas and communicate feelings in creative ways. This expression is encouraged through art, music, dance, stories and imaginative play.
As a result of our approach, the children at Global Indonesia School are motivated, active, creative and critically thinking learners. They have opportunities to revisit and extend their learning individually, in groups and with adult support rooted in responsive pedagogy. Regular monitoring, evaluation and feedback from senior leaders ensures all children, regardless of gender, race, and religion, SEN, EAL and socio-economic status make progress in a developmentally appropriate way which prepares them for the next stage in their learning and for life as active citizens.
We know this because:
We constantly assess what the children know and can do in these key areas, which coupled with our curriculum approach, ensures that children build on new knowledge, learning and skills in readiness for the next stage in their learning.
