Inquiry


Rationale

Inquiry at Annunciation School looks at the strands of History, Geography, Science,Humanities,Sustainability and Economics and how these effect the way people organise themselves throughout the global community. The use of MAPPEN (an online tool for teachers) helps ensure the curriculum focuses on real life inquiries through different lenses. 

The knowledge, skills and values gained by the children will lead them to become responsible, decision-making citizens in our ever-changing world.
