Primary ( I to V )
In classes I to V, the focus is on encouraging inquiry, exploration and on inculcating confidence in key learning skills-reading, writing, listening, speaking, information technology capability, problem-solving, observation and measurement. Children are encouraged to speak and perform at assemblies, concerts, drama productions, and thus gain confidence in their ability to communicate to a wider audience.
Therefore, our curriculum in these classes is structured to encourage and motivate them to become self-confident, self-reliant and self-disciplined, and thus help them achieve to their full potential. The school seeks to achieve this through a variety of curricular and co-curricular programmes.
Children learn and develop through
- A number of informal methods like activities, projects, presentations and hands-on experiences, apart from formal learning.
- Activities like free play, dramatization, enacting through puppets, singing, dancing, cooking, art, and so on.
- Outdoor and indoor play and games.
- Sharing ideas with other children and discovering facts for themselves through observation and reference work.
- Exciting experimental learning opportunities through field trips which are planned for specific educational purposes.
- An appropriate balance of whole group, small group and individual activities, which cater to individual differences in learning.
- An inter-disciplinary appreciation of Language, Mathematics, Social Studies and Science by learning as individual subjects as well as in an integrated way.
- Exposure to team and individual sports, competitive and non-competitive, which encourages sportsmanship and a school-wide community spirit and a feeling of individual accomplishment.
- Opportunities in Dance, Fine Arts, Theatre, Western and Indian Music, Speech and Drama and Yoga, which facilitate a well-rounded development. These are part of the regular curriculum and are also being offered as co-curricular and core activity programmes.
