CURRICULUM INSIGHT

Nursery – September 2017

Theme for the month: Exploring the Water World

Teaching preschoolers about the animals and their habitats, characteristics and diet, helps them to relate to the world around them. Thus this month we are back with one more exciting theme ‘Exploring the Water World’. This theme will build your child’s interest and prior understanding by exposing them to some new animals; also they will learn how adaptation of each animal enables them to survive in their environment

Through this theme your child will learn to identify different sea creatures and also differences among them based on their physical features and food habits.

The focus will also be on exploring the water world and learning about the infinite species that live in harmony.

They will develop a deeper understanding about water related concepts and also get to unravel the mysteries of the seashore and its treasures.

Effective usage of Audio Visual Learning, Technology, Art and Craft and Role Plays will be used as the methodology.

Language:

Vocabulary will be enhanced through the introduction of letters ‘Jj’, ‘Kk’, ‘Ll’, 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 Public Places: This month, the child will learn about good manners at public places, which can be inculcated in their day to day life. It is essential to educate children about the right manners for public places, so that they learn to behave well and stay polite in a public place.
