APPROACHES TO LEARNING (ATLS)
- Thinking skills
- Communication skills
- Research skills
- Self-management skills
- Social skills
The approaches to learning and associated sub-skills support students of all ages in being agentic and self-regulated learners. Through a variety of strategies, PYP teachers collaboratively plan for implicit and explicit opportunities to develop ATL both inside and outside the programme of inquiry.
The Seven Peaks Early Years program serves children ages 3.5 (by the first day of the school year) to 4 years old. This multi-age approach to learning encompasses our IB pedagogy that guides students’ learning journeys, and adds invaluable benefits to the inquiry-based curriculum, all while providing an authentic childhood experience for preschool and Pre-K students.
In the early years, play is the primary driver for inquiry. Our early years teachers create stimulating learning environments and experiences, listen deeply to students and craft opportunities for inquiry.
