CURRICULUM INSIGHT

Nursery – July 2018

Theme for the month: Animal Kingdom

Learning about the animal kingdom is quite exciting for children, especially preschoolers, as animals have certain qualities that make them mysterious and exciting to children- e.g. they have special abilities like flying, digging and climbing, which children often fantasize about.

Thus the theme, ‘Animal Kingdom’ will provide an opportunity for our young ones to learn more about their forest friends and how these animals live in harmony with nature and make wilderness their home. The children will also learn about their food habits, family, physical features and their characteristics. They will be able to distinguish various animals based on their habitat, food and surroundings.

Methodology: Effective usage of Audio Visual learning, technology, art and craft and role plays.

Language:

Vocabulary will be enhanced through the introduction of letters ‘Gg’, ‘Hh’, ‘Ii’, and sight words related to the theme. Along with these various activities like show and tell, picture talk, rhymes and stories will be done regularly.

Life Skills:

Good Manners at School: This month, the students will learn about good manners at school which will foster a sense of respect for the school. Students will also learn about cooperation, sharing and caring for the peers.

Numeracy:

The child will be exposed to numerals and concept of colours and shapes.
