The curriculum places the importance on literacy; numeracy and language, while at the same time responding to changing needs in science and technology In Grade I and II, children are steered into learning short theme oriented poems/rhymes focusing on different subjects such as colors, numbers, plants and animals. This will enhance cognitive understanding of their surroundings as well as augment language and communication skills. Activities comprising arts education taught in the initial two classes of elementary education are time-bound activities, providing exposure to creative communication, linguistic comprehension, identifying, recognizing and applying varying sounds in different contexts, communicating through gesture as well as exploring and expanding thematic understanding.

Children will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through seven areas of learning and development. Children mostly develop the three prime areas first. These are: Communication and language; Physical development; Personal, social and emotional development. These prime areas are those most essential for the child’s healthy development and future learning.

As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in four specific areas. These are:

  • Literacy;
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world;
  • Expressive arts and Crafts.

The curriculum focuses on learning by doing and learning through interaction with others, giving children opportunities to construct their own knowledge. Emphasis has also been placed in the curriculum on development of life skills. The curriculum encourages an inclusive approach and aims at bringing out the potential of each child.
