Children in Earth Class have an individualised curriculum based upon their current interest and environmental themes. We strongly believe in a child centred approach and therefore follow an ‘In The Moment’ style of teaching and learning.
“Children are born with a natural desire to explore and learn and practitioners can support them in this. We do this by creating an enabling environment (both physical and emotional) and through the relationships and interactions that the children experience. We do not plan ahead, rather we remain “in the moment” with the children as they explore and learn. We observe carefully, and enhance the learning whenever we spot a “teachable moment”. Our observations, interactions and the outcomes are recorded afterwards.” Anna Ephgrave
The classroom is designed to allow easy access to resources and equipment in a way which encourages all children to become motivated and independent learners.
