Inquiry is Our Engine of Growth

Inquiry learning is a student-centered approach that allows students to have more control over their process of knowledge getting. It arouses students‘ curiosities and motivates students to continue to seek until they find answer.

An inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning can increase intellectual engagement and foster deep understanding through the development of a hands-on, minds-on and research-based disposition towards teaching and learning. Inquiry strives to nurture deep, discipline-based ways of thinking and doing with students.

Stimulation of the Mind

At FIS, we believe inquiry begins with a provocation to know more. Teachers actively engage students in the process of inquiry, providing children with rich, stimulating materials and opportunities that are both thoughtfully planned and delightfully spontaneous. Whether indoors participating in experiments or exploring cause and effect events, teachers capture the moment to investigate and contemplate the “whys” and “what-ifs.”

Inquiry-based learning is a form of active learning that starts by posing questions, problems or scenarios—rather than simply presenting established facts or portraying a smooth path to knowledge. The process is often assisted by a facilitator. Inquirers will identify and research issues and questions to develop their knowledge or solutions.

Exploration of Interests

Inquiry-led project encourages children to explore their interests, classify and compare, ask questions, make smart guesses, investigate further, and find answers.

Our inquiry projects support children to ask questions and seek answers about topics of high interest. Children collaborate during the investigation and learn to be team players.
