SPECIFIC GOALS for all learners
Children need to learn, but given the importance of literacy and numeracy for their future as learners, they need to love learning. Sharing that love for learning is the reason why we decided to use drama and world languages to enrich their learning experiences throughout the curriculum.
With drama, each learner is involved in physical and mental games, role-plays, discussions, simulation and trust exercises, physical and mental warm up activities, as well as movement and dance work. That is what enables Drama to address areas such as the promotion of self-expression, the building of self-confidence, the enhancement of creativity and the encouragement of co-operation.
With world languages, each learner gets the opportunity to experience life as a member of a global community. The world gets smaller and smaller, and the ability to approach it with an open mind toward other people and other cultures is what the learning of foreign languages offer.
