Curriculum & Learning Areas at CMRNPS

Curriculum at CMR National Public School

At CMR National Public School, we felt an increasing need to set the pace with standards of learning which facilitate a universal understanding of each subject. In the teaching methodology adopted at the school, we have adjusted our curriculum to ensure that:

– Our children arrive at an understanding of a concept/idea by themselves, instead of offering a said understanding to them and evaluating them on how well they remember it.

– We do this by including a number of activities (group/individual) like book readings, video screenings to name a few

Our aim is to induce them to ‘think’ and arrive at an understanding of the world around them, through this creative process of ‘doing.’

This not only generates interest, thereby resulting in a greater engagement on their part; but also allows them to explore their world, outside of what would otherwise be considered ‘non-essential’ in terms of assessment. For instance, reading novels, books, stories, watching movies – are all activities that have been included within the scope of their learning. Hence, they don’t need time separate from their regular school work to develop a taste for recreational activities. It helps create a culture of curiosity and relate these activities to what they are being taught in school.
