International Early Years Curriculum: Pre-Primary School
The Pre-primary stage is the most defining period of an individual’s life. We are following the highly acclaimed International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC), UK. IEYC uses international best practices, holistic enquiry and play-based approaches that cover all curriculum areas including personal, social and emotional development.
Elementary School: Grade I to II
The methodology at the Primary School level aims to create joy in learning and to foster innate curiosity in children through concrete hands-on learning experiences. At this level, a healthy balance is maintained between academics and activities, with the focus of giving children a strong academic foundation.
Project Based Learning: Grade III to VII
Project-based learning is a student-centered pedagogy that involves a dynamic classroom approach in which students acquire a more profound knowledge through active exploration of real-world challenges and problems. We follow Project based learning for grades I to VII
Project-based learning not only provides opportunities for students to collaborate or drive their own learning, but it also teaches them skills such as problem solving, and helps to develop additional skills, such as critical thinking and time management. And maybe more importantly, it provides students with an opportunity to create authentic projects which are personal and meaningful to them. Students have the chance to pursue their own interests and as a result, opportunities for learning for students and teachers are tremendous.
Within a project, students are involved with meaningful real world problems over a defined period of time. Students are required to find a solution to it through a process of asking questions, finding, analyzing, and applying information, as well as employing their creativity skills. Usually, the process also includes decision making, team collaboration, and reviewing for the sake of improving the final solution.
Moving through the process, students develop skills that include problem-solving, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity. It’s important to emphasize that the goal of project based learning is not to solve the problem, but to gain the aforementioned skills throughout the process of solving the problem.
PBL is an expremential and integrated pattern in which the core subjects like Math Science, Social studies are integrated with Art, Craft, Music and Ict
PBL is “Hands on” and “Minds on” style of study
- Project based learning involves all kinds of “ Hands on” or “Minds on” activities that vary in complexity
- These tasks are detailed and objective oriented, focused on to meet standard need of the subject
- It is instructional method in which different learning methods and strategies are incorporated to meet the individual needs of the students
- PBL prepares students to accept and meet challenges in the real world, mirroring what professionals do every day.
- Instead of short-term memorization strategies, project-based learning provides an opportunity for students to engage deeply with the target content, bringing about a focus on long-term retention.
Leadership and Career Guidance: Grades VIII-XII
In the senior grades, a unique experience is offered to build our students’ leadership skills. Community service, an active student council, yearly excursions and AFS intercultural programmes are an important part of the calendar.
Students also begin to think about the various career paths that are available to them, and to guide them in the right direction, we have a career counselling programme – UDAAN – right from Grade IX onwards.
The bridge across all grades
In case of older kids with learning issues, the CBSE gives many concessions. Students are helped in choosing alternate subjects in case of learning difficulty.
Suchitra Academy believes that unless the development of the mind and body goes hand in hand with a corresponding awakening of the soul, the former alone would prove to be a poor lopsided affair.
A vibrant co-curricular programme is abuzz at Suchitra. Indeed these combine to educate and develop a child holistically. There are more than several activities for students to choose from and these in turn help students to express themselves, find themselves, outside the classroom. Co-curricular pursuits include quizzing, debating, elocution, theatre, photography, fine art, pottery, Model United Nations among others
Quality Circle Time and Happiness classes
Grades VI to XII have Happiness Classes. The objective is to improve the mental well -being of the children. It teaches mindfulness, social-emotional learning, critical thinking, problem solving and relationship building. The objective is to equip pupils with the necessary skills and environment to become purpose-driven, and explore a nuanced idea of happiness.
Read aloud Programme- Jr KG to Gr II
Novel reading programme- Grades III-VII
Partnering programme - Grades IX-XII
We offer a unique Partnering programme for the students of Grades IX-XII. The aim of this programme is to offer a teacher partner to the student and reach out to them beyond the classroom. This partnership aims to guide the students keeping in mind their emotional and social well being, help identify their academic needs, set goals for their future and keep a track of their progress and achievements.
