Learner Profile focus: We are inquirers

In the Junior School, we focus on a specific IB Learner Profile each few weeks, the Junior School Council (JSC) does an excellent job during Monday morning line-ups in unpacking what each Learner Profile is through leading discussions with the Junior School children from EY2 – Gr 5.

At the moment our focus is Inquirers:

We nurture our curiosity, developing skills for inquiry and research. We know how to learn independently and with others. We learn with enthusiasm and sustain our love of learning throughout life.

Our JSC are currently leading an inquiry into “How do we learn best?” This week they have surveyed all children in Grades 2 to 5 to determine if their peers are predominantly Visual, Auditory or Kinesthetic learners. The JSC were very quick to realise in initial discussions that we all learn in different ways and usually are a mix of learning styles. From here they will make a large graph enabling us all to see the learning styles across the school. This will be displayed near the JSC Wonderwall, make sure you check it out.

Ask your child how they have been an inquirer this week? How do they learn best? Do they prefer to listen, draw or act things out? Make sure to share with your child’s teachers examples of your child being an inquirer at home and how they learn.
