Primary School - Curriculum
"The process of learning should be as far as possible a pleasurable one and not
laborious" – MAHATMA GANDHI
The above quote is the guiding principle of the work that is done at the primary
level (I to III) of Sri Kumaran Children's Home (CBSE). The curriculum is made interesting
by teachers. Children are not burdened with heavy school bags and a lot of homework.
At the primary school level the emphasis is on learning right values and acquiring
skills. 'Circle Time' sessions provide children opportunities to understand the
importance of values and of making the right choices. They learn to communicate
with others and develop self-confidence.
In the initial stages, focus is on oral language development. Gradually other skills
are integrated into the curriculum. Activity based teaching makes learning enjoyable.
Children are taught pottery, drawing and craft that sharpen motor skills. Children
of these classes do not have examinations.
Curriculum for classes I – III:
An integrated curriculum with emphasis on subjects is followed.
- English, Mathematics, Environmental Science
- II Language ( Hindi or Kannada)
- Drawing and Pottery and other co-curricular activities.
Language Pattern in Primary School
All schools following Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) need to follow
a three-language formula. The medium of instruction is English .Second language
is also introduced in Class I. Third language is introduced in Class V.
A child studying in private CBSE schools studies Hindi only as a language and English
is the medium of instruction to learn all other subjects.
- I Language – English
- II Language – Hindi/Kannada
- The II language choices at Class I are either Hindi or Kannada.
Hindi has to be compulsorily studied as II or III language according to the CBSE
