Learning Through Play

 Years one to three (Juniors)

Learning through play: At Edendale, we help children build more complex, high-order skills such as creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and problem-solving by providing them with an environment where they can explore these in their day to day learning. The learning through play approach in our classrooms provides lots of opportunities to develop these skills.

Our learning through play programme encourages the following:

  • Agency: they learn to take ownership of their learning and participate actively in authentic learning experiences.
  • Explore: they get to explore their passion and be innovative.
  • Fun: they learn while having lots of fun.


Structured Literacy  

At Edendale, in Years 1-3, we follow a Structured Literacy approach for our teaching of the English Curriculum. A Structured Literacy approach is a highly explicit and systematic way of teaching all important components of literacy. These components include both foundational skills (for e.g., decoding, spelling, handwriting and letter formation) and higher-level literacy skills (for e.g., reading comprehension, written expression).
