SCHOLASTIC AND CO-SCHOLASTIC APPROACH
Our Primary Years curriculum is age appropriate. It is based on learning out comes and progressive teaching, integrating the concepts, processes and ways of thinking drawn from the diverse disciplines of subject areas. We begin the journey with the following subjects:
English Language Arts
Information and Communication Technology
The Co-scholastic subjects are:
Physical, Social, Health Education
Physical Education, Yoga & Sports (SPEED)
The six intergrated themes help the learners in Grades 1-4 make meaningful connections through the immersive process, wherein a thematic focus straddles all areas of learning, each theme with a duration of 4 to 6 weeks.
At BOMIS, we conduct Filler Weeks and Subject Weeks to develop various skills, such as, reading skills, writing skills, listening skills, speaking skills, mathematical and scientific skills.
The Curricula for grades 1-4 are thoughtfully planned to ensure that each child at school enjoys these years in learning. Discovery and creative engagement and research on how the brain learns best, developmental appropriateness, the theory of Multiple Intelligences and the National Curricular Framework, have guided the planned curriculum.
Learning environment is an affirmative and enabling one. Bright airy learning spaces, creative learning centres, library, integrated laboratories, ICT laboratories, exciting and interactive display boards, create and environment that catalyses learning.
Assessment is an ongoing process. It guides the learners in their pursuit of learning. Theme End Assessments and Term End Assessments ensure timely feedback on degree of achievement of individual as well as grade-level outcomes. These, in turn guide teachers and parents to provide challenge or support as per need in a ‘timely’ and ‘effective’ manner. The progress of each child is shared through detailed report books along with a portfolio of documented work, making learning visible to all.
All these thoughtful processes ensure the fulfillment of our ultimate goal of teaching in a way that all students learn and develop various skills, such as, reading, writing, listening, speaking, communication, problem-solving, citizenship, collaboration, leadership and creative and critical thinking.
