Underlining the Focus of Learning

Our academic endeavour gives special importance to the way the subjects and its core values are taught to the students. Here are a few underlying thoughts how learning is made specific and serious.

Science Learning

Making Science Learning accessible and relevant to all pupils - This is a fundamental responsibility of the teacher and embraces the notion of inclusion, the providing of effective learning opportunities for all pupils. The seven principles that are followed are.,

  • To set suitable learning challenges for all pupils

Young children are naturally curious. They have an irresistible tendency to explore objects, and this seems to be the basis of curiosity. The most important thing in developing a child's interest in the subject is by taking beyond the horizons of the classroom and teaching it in a way which is innovative and separate from traditional ways of teaching.

Children can be engaged in fun activities along with general instructions of mathematics as it would help them to retain leading them to create a logical and an understanding towards their studies.

Teaching strategies which involve project based activities offer students the potential of gaining deeper insights in mathematical concepts. This strategy engages students to use critical thinking processes as they develop and answer their own questions.

Math based activities helps students tap into higher order skills, which allows them to make those all important connections between math concept and other concepts.
