Discovering Worlds in Imagined Spaces
With just a little imagination, we transform the classroom into whole other worlds that expand the horizons of young minds. With speech practices and drama activities weaved into a seamless lesson plan, children get to improve their language, performance and communication skills, all while having loads of fun!
- Active learning. We believe children learn best by being directly involved in the learning process. Instead of being passive learners absorbing information, they are immersed into imagined worlds and situations, cultivating empathy and self-discovery.
- Thematic approach. While each term run along a specific theme (e.g. emotions), so do the individual lessons (e.g. excitement). Lessons are segmented into parts that include warm ups, speech exercises, breathing exercises, stories/poems, dramatisation, guiding questions and Pedestal Talks. All segments tie in together with the running weekly topic, ensuring smooth transitions that retain students’ attention.
- Advancing through the terms. Starting the terms with more specific, easily-comprehensible topics like the five senses, we ease children into dramatic learning with familiar concepts. The subsequent terms are modelled to complement students’ development in confidence, thinking and familiarity.
- Public speaking practice. The Pedestal Talk© calls upon students to step up onto our pedestals to build self-confidence and self-presentation skills.
- Speech and voice exercises. Every week, children practice sounds and pronunciations to correct speech habits and improve articulation
- Age-appropriate. Lessons are carefully crafted considering the age-groups of each level, with differing levels of complexity and stories (Opal recommended for playgroup, Pearl recommended for nursery, Ruby recommended for Kindergarten 1, Sapphire recommended for Kindergarten 2).
- Built on well-researched concepts. Lessons are build upon the foundations of highly accredited concepts such as the Alexander Technique that analyses and corrects posture and articulation, and the Laban Movement Analysis that provides an extensive model for assessing human movement.
