DETAILS OF CURRICULUM

GRADE I TO VIII

CBSE Primary education program in The Indian Public School has adopted a balanced approach to the learning experience.

Academic rigour is blended with fun and innovation. Art in all forms breathes life into the learning framework and a wide range of visual tools play a major role for the children to express themselves freely and independently. Stories, music, poetry, theatre play a quintessential role to convey the ideas, direct and tangible experience of people and the environment help the children to develop their own perspectives about the world around them.

While children in Grade 1 and 2 primarily focus on developing foundation literacy and foundation numeracy, Grade 3, 4 and 5 progressively learn to engage with more cognitive tasks and express creatively. At all levels, children mature in their understanding of the concepts through observations, by recording their findings, by collaborating and learning from their peers, by experimenting and by questioning. Evaluation captures all the skills they learnt through and the final outcome of the taught program.

‌The learning framework integrates the various subject disciplines to make learning more meaningful and to help the learners understand that in real life, issues are interrelated and knowledge is not fragmented into parts. The framework provides a background of connection of the people and the world, the environment through four themes that follows a spiral structure to inculcate a deeper learning approach.

With time and age, the cognitive demands grow at the Middle school level. The complexities of the concepts demand the application of skills at all levels, thinking and academic behaviour. The parameters expand and students learn to make a connection with the texts and real life. The entire focus of the facilitation of learning focuses largely on making students independent in learning, more self-reliant and resourceful.

The academic disciplines follow the NCERT guidelines as a primary basis but extends the reach beyond the known with an extensive use of wide range of sources and learning tools.
