At “The Study”, Kindergarten plays a vital role in formulating the early childhood development by nurturing the child to have a smooth transition from JKG to SKG and establishing a strong foundation to enhance learning skills.
Teachers implement several teaching methodologies to make the students learn in a joyful way. Children in Kindergarten learn by play-way method, experiential, multi-level, activity-based, inquiry-based methodologies to acquire the abstract concepts, numerals, counting, colours, shapes, alphabet and languages which enhance critical thinking and ensure holistic development of the child.
Evaluation of the kindergarten classes is done on day-to-day basis, depending upon the concept and the syllabus taught. The overall performance of the child is assessed by the end of all the 2 terms.
Curriculum involves a multi-faceted approach of fine-motor, gross-motor, sand and water play, literacy, language, numeracy and mathematical concepts, environmental awareness, music and movement.
Kindergarten follows theme-based learning or the practice of integrating curriculum areas around a topic. Kids learn a theme every month connected to the subjects.
We believe in preparing our children for life in a world where they will interact with compassion, courage and buoyancy; a mindset that respects differences. Inquiry based learning through activity takes place here at The Study school. Experimental learning is the key to understand the depth of the subjects. The primary students learn from hands-on activities in all their subjects. We make them realize the importance of reading, speaking and listening in this electronic age.
The school will therefore be a community of stakeholders invested in the personal, intellectual, social, physical and spiritual development of every learner. Children are provided with a variety of options and multiple opportunities to learn and succeed. Every child will be nurtured to take an active role in making this planet impartial, inclusive and self-sustaining.
The Study L’école Internationale is happy to introduce a new learning platform to our students.
The Flipped classroom Method:
The flipped classroom sometimes referred as the inverted classroom, is a modern instructional strategy that offers student-centred peer-assisted learning. So, what was traditionally done in-class is done at home, while what was done as homework is now done in-class by the guidance of the teacher.
In contrast to the traditional teaching method, the flipped classroom technique focuses on providing the students with learning material in the form of pre-recorded lectures, videos, presentations, tutorials, and other web-based material prior to the actual class. This method helps the students to familiarize themselves with the new topic that’s yet to be taught and prepare for the in-class activities with the teacher and peers, ahead of time.
So, during the class time in the flipped classroom approach, the students will revisit the topic and the teacher will engage them with group discussions, collaborative coursework, and assessments involving what they have learnt.
In a remote teaching and learning environment, this method has proven to be more effective especially when teaching theoretical parts of the curriculum.
Benefits of a flipped classroom include,
From grades 1 to 5, the school follows semester system, which has two terms. Each term has two formative assessments and one summative assessment. Comprehensive evaluation is done in the areas of projects, class activities, group discussions, quizzes and assignments done at home. Formative assessments comprise of assessing both oral and written skills. In summative assessments, only written skills are tested. Life skills, such as social skills, thinking skills and non-scholastic skills are also graded. Hence, it is very important to show interest and participate in competitions and other extra-curricular activities.
Children from 1st to 5th Standards follow the syllabus prescribed by the Central Board of Secondary Education.
The books followed from Standards 1- 5 are also recommended by the CBSE.
