Pre-Primary School Activities
Games and activities are more than just fun for a pre-primary student — they also help with physical development and early learning. Through-out the year, our staff and principal ensure that students have a host of activities to have a well balanced school life. Not only does this allow students to shine in non-academic activities but also teaches them more about our culture, imparts morals. The Pre-Primary wing, bubbling with life of three to five year olds, who need special handling, have activities planned for them taking care of their emotional, social and physical well being. The children indulge in multifarious activities throughout the year. These activities are an integrated part of the curriculum and substantiate class room learning, helping in molding a multifaceted personality.
To encourage participation and enhance the overall personality of the child various activities are involved in our teaching strategy:
• Morning Assembly is organised for developing moral, human and spiritual values in students. We all express gratitude to God for wonderful gifts like one’s parents, family and comforts. Exercise is an integral part of the Assembly.
• Story telling and story making –Through dramatization and role play we present tales of courage, togetherness, tolerance, love and patriotism.
• To build confidence, self- esteem and independence we encourage free and structured conversation.
• We use computers for teaching concepts
• Flash cards, blocks, pebbles, twigs etc. are used in free Indoor Play
• Nature Walk and Picnics are organized to develop aesthetic sensibility and love for nature
• Music and dance creates harmony, recharges and provides refinement to mind. It also supports the development of coordination and large muscles. Hence it has an important place in the pre-primary curriculum.
• Visual Arts enable the learners to become visually literate and expressive at a level consistent with their intellectual, emotional and physical development. It is a medium through which a child is able to express the imagination in a tangible form, using strokes and colours and thus this activity plays an important role in a child's growth process. Students learn the nuances of still life painting, landscape, water colour, oil and acrylic.
