Grade 3 – Grade 6 (Ages 8 to 12)
In the Elementary School at ISB, this is the time where we help your child to learn to explore the world with curiosity, asking questions and developing skills in problem solving and interpretation.
The ISB learning experience in the Elementary School builds upon the foundations laid down by further consolidating the understandings, skills and knowledge necessary for a lifetime of inquiry-based learning.
Learning in the Elementary School is characterised by:
Interaction in a range of educational settings, where students are working on their own and in groups • learning to explore the world with curiosity, asking questions and developing skills in problem solving and interpretation • continuing to develop a range of social skills, in the classroom, in the playground, and on the sports field • enjoying a range of extra-curricula opportunities, including an extensive field study programme • continuing to develop the various literacies (reading, writing, mathematical) that will be key to all future learning • learning and developing language skills in French or Dutch.
