How we do things

We know that children learn in different ways and we work hard to give all of our children the opportunities they need to have fun and learn!

We organise activities for the children, which give them the opportunities to develop the characteristics of learning, which are:

  • Playing and exploring - children investigate and experience things, and ‘have a go’;
  • Active learning - children concentrate and keep on trying if they encounter difficulties, and enjoy achievements; and
  • Creating and thinking critically - children have and develop their own ideas, make links between ideas, and develop strategies for doing things.

In Ark Academy, we believe in the power of learning through play, based on topics and experiences they are interested in. We plan exciting experiences based on events happening through the year.
