The new curriculum, which launches this month, emphasises using literature to develop imagination, creative thinking, vocabulary, creative writing and cognitive ability.
The faculties involved in Scholar Base’s curriculum include the following areas:
- EYES: Teachers use a variety of colourful visual aids – including computers, alphabet blocks, cards, puzzles and other learning toys – to reinforce learning in a memorable way.
- MOUTH: Students are encouraged to interact, share their thoughts and ask questions. Rewards are given constantly for verbal participation, which supports genuine understanding of materials rather than regurgitation of facts.
- EARS: Teachers carefully adjust the pitch, tone and warmth of their voices to draw children’s attention, particularly in training them during recitation of poems, singing songs and telling stories.
- BODY: Using their hands and legs, younger students are able to mimic the shape of letters with actions that are familiar to them. Kinetic actions are often incorporated into class activities.
- MIND: Children are encouraged to develop creative thinking and reasoning abilities by solving problems and relating topics to their own lives.
