最新校園資訊

受疫情影響,幼稚園在停止面授課堂期間,需要運用其他模式讓兒童在家中學習。我們慶幸幼稚園業界擁有投入及專業的團隊,即使面對前所未有的衝擊和挑戰,仍然保持積極樂觀的心態,彼此扶持。大家憑着對幼兒教育的熱忱,發揮無限創意,設計富趣味的學習活動,並協同家長的力量,幫助兒童維持學習興趣和促進身心發展。

學校簿冊的設計以兒童發展理論為基礎,加入思維訓練的元素,以及本地文化的需要。家長是孩子生命中最重要的老師,也是學校課程成功的關鍵者,所以學校的簿冊設計是親子習作為核心,並且是重質,不重量。習作的寫字量以同一個字的書寫量不多於八個為原則,原因就是避免孩子出現疲勞線。孩子透過習作建立擴散思維的能力,自然地增進知識,成為主動學習者,就是「重質,不重量。」

Children who grow up reading picture books have a different mindset because children will learn to look for clues from the pictures through reading, and through noticing how characters interact with other characters and their surroundings, children can develop concentration skills, analysis skills, comprehension skills, expression skills, study abilities, problem-solving skills and logical thinking skills.

Our school-based curriculum is centred around picture books. Parents are given a reading guide to accompany the reading of each picture book. With the reading guide, parents can get a better grasp of the story, and use the discussion questions in it for more bookish fun and getting a deeper understanding of their children’s inner world. The reading guide also comes with cultural information related to the story, enabling readers to make connections with local life while reading. It also suggests places parents can visit with their children, encouraging children to gain knowledge through hands-on experience. Our school-based curriculum is a “living” one.

Our assignments are designed according to child development theories, with elements that develop learners’ thinking skills and support local needs. Parents are a child’s most important teacher and the key of curriculum success. This is why parent-child exercises are the core of our assignment design. It’s all about quality, not quantity. To prevent children from getting tired of studying, we only give them writing exercises that include the writing of the same word 8 times or less. Through doing these assignments, children can broaden their thinking skills, acquire knowledge naturally and become active learners. That’s what “quality, not quantity” is all about.

We also pay attention to children’s second language acquisition. We have specialist teachers teaching Putonghua and English. Through morning assemblies, class activities, songs, conversations, role-plays and games, children are given opportunities to learn and apply what they have learnt. In our English lessons, we teach children English phonics in addition to English textbook content to help children acquire a good pronunciation and learn to read using phonics.
