We understand that each and every child is an individual that have different learning styles and inert learning capabilities. By incorporating various tried and tested teaching methods, we can give our students an unfair advantage in their learning journey.
Lejour has a structured revision programme in place to ensure whatever the child learns stays in their long-term memory. This prevents the unnecessary stressful situation where the child has to cramp tons of content before the exams. We do not overwhelm children with homework helping them to balance between their academics and play.
SEAL IT is a learning competency model developed by the founders of Lejour. We aim to nurture our students in six areas of learning competencies, each of them is represented by a letter, spelling out SEAL IT!
Spatial visualisation is the ability to manipulate an object in our mind. This is particularly important in the learning of Mathematics and Science. Students are guided to predict what would happen to objects after being transformed before confirming their predictions with real objects. This helps them develop their abilities to visualise which is extremely useful in examinations.
Experiential learning is a powerful tool to enhance learning across different levels and subjects. While children experience new things all the time, how often does that translate to actual learning?
Lejour guides our students to reflect on their experiences allowing them to gain deeper insights and to concretise their learning.
Students are taught how to actively listen and sieve out useful information. They are then guided to process the information and construct their own understanding.
Lejour develops our students to think logically across all subjects. Students are guided to see the cause and effects relationship not only in mathematical workings and scientific processes but also in a coherent essay. Logical reasoning is increasingly essential for languages and humanities.
Our educators also make use of appropriate scaffolding to help students recognise patterns and connections between seemingly unrelated concepts.
Independent learning is when students take ownership of their own studies. Lejour believes that students learn independently when they are driven by curiosity and inspired by knowledge.
Being able to collaborate and work together as a team is one of the most valuable skills for the future. Students also learn better from doing a task that requires social interaction, such as active discussion.
