Class V is the senior most class in the Junior Section. The age group of this class is 9+. Students who fare well get direct admission to the Senior Section. There are 5 sections of this class. The students are well versed with the CCE pattern of assessments which include both formative and summative assessments. The pupils have subjects like English Literature, English Language, Vernacular both 2nd as well as 3rd language, Mathematics, Science, Geography, History, IT and GK. The Co-scholastic subjects include Indian and Western Music, Art, Craft, Games as well as Yoga, Karate and Clubs. Value Education forms an integral part of all the subjects.
In an effort to make the child empowered and to propagate self-learning through self- motivation, the school has introduced Flipped Classroom Methodology – a step in the direction of 21st century educational pedagogy from the new academic session 2016-17 in Class V as a pilot project.
Flipping the classrooms will benefit since quality learning is the prime goal of all educators. It is a pedagogical model of learning in which the classroom sessions and the homework are flipped. The delivery of the lessons take place at home digitally at the learner’s own pace and in doing so the learners learn, unlearn and relearn the concepts explained, hence are absolutely geared up for the forthcoming classroom session.
The classroom interaction gets more productive and takes to sharing of information, activities, perform more textual exercise, and clarify deeper concepts which in turn trigger off the Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) of the students. The class activities may vary based on the subject but overall it turns to be concept learning, peer review, project based and ultimately perfect knowledge delivery along with knowledge acquisition. The students will be using tablets provided in the classroom for performing these extension activities mentioned above.
