Curriculum & Assessment

CURRICULUM 2020-21

Shermount Public School prepare our Students from Pre- K G to VIII Standard in accordance with the CBSE curriculum, giving due respect to the New Educational Policy of the Government of India following Textbooks and Reference books based on the guidelines of NCERT.  A comprehensive pattern of formative and summative assessments is followed for evaluation. In addition to academics, life skills and values are also assessed. Hands on education, student-centric learning methodology, skill-based learning, are some of the concepts that we at The Shermount Sublic school have adopted to enrich academics.

Value-Based Education

Education is knowledge imbued with wisdom and ethics which mould the behaviour and personality of the students.

The students imbibe the essential qualities of honesty, fair play, empathy, courage, integrity, compassion, loyalty and courtesy through morning assemblies, celebration of festivals and day-to-day interaction with the teachers. The effort is to guide the students towards appropriate behaviour and development of a strong character. The major strategies are as under:

  • Importance of values are kept in mind while preparing and designing lessons.
  • Day begins with morning assembly – where prayers, new word sharing, thought sharing, exercises , birth day celebration and celebration of special days are conducted.
  • Moving on to the daily snacks time where cleanliness, hygiene and manners are focused.
  • By developing work habits we develop self-confidence in our students

PRE PRIMARY CURRICULUM

Education at Sherkids is an integrated process with a flexible curriculum that takes into account the heterogeneity of the learner and learning styles. Emphasis is laid on acquiring linguistic & logical ability and nurturing multiple intelligences by adopting innovative methods to stimulate interest and attention among the students. This opens up pathways to a holistic and harmonious development of the young learners

In the Junior Sections, we take extra care to ensure that the syllabus of one class dovetails into the next higher class in a way such that no undue burden is felt by the student.

Scientifically-proven graded methods of teaching towards developing the skill to read and write are adopted. Art and Craft (line and curve drawings, thumb-print sketches, Spray and mosaic paintings, paper foldings, Plasticine models, etc.), Music, Puppetry, Story telling and Role play from an integral part of the Juniors’ curriculum. Every day there is ‘Guru Vani’ wherein a teacher expresses her thoughts on any topic through stories, anecdotes, etc.

PRIMARY – CURRICULUM

The Primary Education module is designed to follow the axiom “Discovering the syllabus is more important than covering it”. We believe that the student should have mental access to assimilation along with physical access to learning. In accordance, the working schedules of classes I and II have been designed in such a way that they have ‘short respite’ periods after every 45 minutes of learning. This helps them to come back ready and refreshed for the next session of classroom learning. The concept of ‘classroom library’ (for classes I to V) gives the students direct access to books in their own classroom. Every day after assembly, 10 minutes of reading time, vocabulary training, enhances and enriches their language skills. Children idolize their teachers to capitalize on this.

To enable the students to acquire academic excellence, emotional development & sensory experience various subjects are incorporated into the curriculum. The subject content is integrated into the framework & context of students’ lives so that the school education becomes more meaningful & relevant in today’s life

Work Experience, Outdoor and Co-Curricular Activities, Karatte, Music Dance, etc. enrich the Seniors’ Curriculum.

Teaching-Learning Strategies

  • The School relentlessly strives to uncover the hidden potential in every student and enhances his capabilities by providing opportunities by way of myriad activities & healthy competition in cultural, literary & sports front.
  • To facilitate better learning through ‘hands-on experience’, fully equipped Mathematics, Science & Computer Science labs are provided.
  • Child-centric approach lays emphasis on discovery method, group learning, project work, surveys, experiments, role plays, etc.
  • Audio-visual aids are used on a regular basis, assisting the students to understand the nuances of a lesson through fun-filled interactive & play way methods.
  • Teaching plan to foster experiential learning lessons are incorporated with actual experience and to foster joyful learning  teaching is beautified  by integrating visual as well as performing arts

MIDDLE SCHOOL – CURRICULUM

The Middle School at SMPS sees the students being readied to face the rigors of the Secondary and the Higher Secondary CBSE curriculum.  Closer supervision and greater support from the teaching community is given to the students and their strengths and weaknesses identified and worked upon during the academic year. Thus regular teacher-parent interactions are augmented and remedies for problems or difficulties faced by students are offered.

The curriculum thus aims at:

  • connecting knowledge to life outside the school,
  • ensuring that learning shifts away from rote methods,
  • overall development of children rather than remain textbook centric,
  • Equipping students with the skills to learn and acquire knowledge, individually or collaboratively, and to apply these skills and knowledge accordingly across a broad range of areas
  • Encouraging diversity and flexibility in teaching methods
  • Providing appropriate forms of assessment and benchmarking

Teaching Learning Strategies

  • here is an increasing emphasis on inter-disciplinary approach, enabling students to understand and appreciate the connectivity between various subjects
  • Children acquire and develop communication and listening skills through well designed activities like debates, group discussions, elocution, extempore, declamations, theme-based talks, drama, skits, role-play, etc.
  • Children’s creativity and talent are nurtured by providing them opportunities to learn and practice dance, music, art, craft, etc.
  • Field trips and educational excursions are an integral part of the curriculum, and extend learning beyond the classroom. These provide opportunities for cultural enrichment, personal and social development along with application of acquired skills.
  • Children learn and apply their knowledge of Information and Communication Technology, building on what they learnt in the earlier grades.
  • The well-planned and structured teaching-learning strategies involving workshops, seminars, talks, presentations, video clippings and laboratory demonstrations reinforce the understanding of mathematical and scientific concepts.
  • The learning gaps are identified through various modes of assessment and are addressed accordingly.
  • The experiential learning creates opportunities for the children to observe, explore, analyze and conclude thus making them independent learners. The school nurtures the Life-Skills in students by prescribing an array of curricular and extra-curricular activities too.
  • The strategy of brain storming is particularly applied for students of classes VI-VIII, who are bright and above average.
  • Students are provided guidance and support by the School Counselor to address their emotional needs during the transitional adolescent years.

Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE)

To provide a holistic profile of the students through regular assessment of scholastic and co-scholastic domains of development, the school follows a continuous and comprehensive evaluation according to the guidelines given by the CBSE Board. The CCE scheme brings about a paradigm shift from examination to effective pedagogy.

Classes I to III

To de-stress learning and not to give undue focus to the Terminal Examination, a Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) is introduced in the primary classes. Work Sheets (5 numbers) have been introduced in these classes ,CCE is spread over the year. An Achievement Record is maintained for each student.

Classes IV to VIII

The whole academic session is divided into 3 terms.  Each  will have PT I, PTII, PTIII assessments and internal evaluations

Promotion is based on the day-to-day work of the students throughout the year and also on the performance in the Semester (Terminal) Examination.
