The best way to learn is through first-hand experience. The method that implements this approach is the Project-Based Method.
„Brainstorming” is the central tool of the method. A small child usually asks adults lots of questions. When a child starts school, they unfortunately get used to learning only what the teachers tell them to as part of their homework. Soon the child concludes that passing tests and getting grades are the only purposes of going to school.
At the PWN Bilingual Elementary School, we want to maintain and develop children’s natural motivation and curiosity about the world. We encourage children to ask questions and teach them how to seek answers. We give them the opportunity to experience, experiment, cooperate in a group and solve specific issues.
- Participation in projects teaches teamwork, ingenuity and innovation, as well as responsibility for one’s work, perseverance and patience. It drives curiosity about the world and gives a lot of joy from work and play with peers.
- Project topics and scenarios are based on children’s actual interests, their natural curiosity and fascination with the surrounding world.
