We regard the entire community as a place for students to learn, and we have established a learning community centered on students, parents, and schools to help the development of students jointly. Our department conducts parent activities regularly, such as the Principal's Coffee Time and Parents' English Salon, to improve the communication between parents and school. In addition, parents take advantages of their professional knowledge and background to give students’ lessons according to various Units of Inquiry. They enter the classroom and offer students vivid
In addition to parents, we also use other resources in the learning community actively to create a variety of authentic learning experiences for students. In this way students can solve problems by applying subject knowledge, and can practice a variety of learning methods. Our department regularly organizes students to go on filed trips in order to explore various museums and some other learning spaces in the Yangtze River Delta Region. Children cooperate and communicate in the activities. Meanwhile, they can be provided with opportunities to show their talents, increase their knowledge, enrich their experience and gain happiness.
