Projects

Along with the Montessori Curriculum each class studies a topic which lasts from 6 to 8 weeks . Following are a few topics we have covered:

Model Of The Earth

The children made a model of the earth. It was very imaginative display, they made paper maché mountains and used other crafts to represent valleys and rivers.

The Solar System

The Solar System was a very exciting topic for the children, they learned new and interesting facts about the sun, the moon, the planets and all things connected to space. They explored the idea what it would be like to be a real astronaut.

Owls

The children fell in love with these beautiful nocturnal birds. 
They learnt the names of many owls, what they eat and where they live. 
The project ended with a fantastic ‘Birds of Prey’ show in our school garden.

Geography

The Montessori maps of the continents relate beautifully to learning about new countries and their cultures. 
Great pleasure is taken in learning the names as the children trace and label the countries, capitals and flags.
