Action Based Learning
LEAP (Learning Energetically Activates Pathways) is based on the brain research that strongly supports the link between movement and learning. We know that healthy, active students, make better learners! So how do we apply this at St Peters Lutheran? LEAP focuses on creating optimal learning environments for all students, through movement. Students engaged in Action Based Learning show improved memory retention, increased focus and attention, improved grades, and less behavioral issues.
Our LEAP programme prepares the brain for learning. The students in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are involved in LEAP twice a week for 30 min.
The Science of LEAP!
- It optimises your mind set to improve alertness, attention, and motivation.
- It prepares and encourages nerve cells to bind to one another, which is the cellular basis for logging in new information.
- It spurs the development of new nerve cells from stem cells in the hippocampus.
