One approach to teaching and Learning that many schools use is Inquiry Learning. Greenhills supports this approach as it nurtures the development of research skills and supports students to ask key questions required for investigation. They develop their ability to problem solve; to question, analyse and interpret information, in order to develop their own understandings and form conclusions about a concept.
At Greenhills, we use the inquiry approach to learning, which involves students forming their own questions about a topic and having time to explore the answers.
Teachers facilitate opportunities for students to ask questions, building on prior knowledge and make their own discoveries. Teachers design a series of activities that are sequenced and allow students to :
•Find out information
•Sort the information
•Go further by working in small groups or independently
•Take action to use what they have learnt in the wider world.
