In the Primary School, a variety of approaches encourage children to feel, explore, create, think, and solve problems.
Learning by Doing:
- The curriculum lays strong emphasis on the constructivist approach, where a child is the architect of her/his own knowledge. Underlying every learning topic is a concept base, which encourages children to see clearly the connections among different subject areas. In every subject area, there is a strong emphasis on equipment and materials, which promotes the spirit of self-investigation.
- Storytelling, staging plays, learning musical instruments, dance and drama are important tools for learning. In the week’s timetable, therefore, each of these areas finds a place.
- Maths, Languages, Understanding Our World are the main areas of learning.
- Circle Time, Show and Tell, and activity-based learning enrich the teaching learning process.
- As part of their social development, students learn how to share and accept responsibilities, such as cleaning up their area after eating, solving problems by working together, finding new ways to cross the rope bridge in the play area, and so on. Here, even the simplest of activities are designed in a way that they support the development of relevant competences which enable the children to be self-reliant.
- Student-Teacher Ratio: 20-25 : 2 (Nursery to Grade I) 20 : 1 (Grade II onwards).
