The Ekya primary school curriculum is aimed at creating social awareness and all-round development focussing on physical, intellectual, social, emotional and value-based learning experiences. At Ekya, we enable the child to make associations, build conceptual connections, collaborate on creative projects and derive great joy in learning.
The curriculum is divided into scholastic areas and non-scholastic areas. Scholastic areas include subjects such as English, Second and Third Languages Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. Second Language options offered are Hindi for the CBSE stream and a choice between Kannada and Hindi for the ICSE stream. Students are given a choice to opt for Kannada or French as a third language in Grade 5.
The educators at Ekya utilize a variety of teaching aids and methods in the course of classroom interactions. Use of flash cards, board games, experiments, fun activities, word games, puzzles, dumb-charades, role-play, audio-visual room equipment, group projects, individual projects, and field trips help students enhance their intellectual skills. Students are posed with questions that help them relate concepts to their day to day experiences right from the primary school level. Ekya educators update themselves through training sessions and workshops constantly and strive to maintain high standards of achieving their educational goals.
The Ekya learner is encouraged to ask questions, think and apply their knowledge at all times. At the primary school level, students develop collaboration skills through participation in group activities.
Students are assessed on the basis of a continuous assessment programme. Each academic year consists of two semesters. The assessment pattern is based on monthly reviews and parameters such as speaking skills, writing skills, reading skills, listening skills, home assignments, work habits, group projects and application of various concepts through worksheets.
Holistic development of the child is observed through assessments in non-scholastic areas like art & craft, music and physical education.
Students of Grade 5 are evaluated on the basis of the Continuous & Comprehensive Evaluation Programme. Formative and summative assessments are conducted throughout the year. Each semester comprises of two formative assessments and one summative assessment. Personality traits are assessed in Grade 5 using a descriptive indicator index which helps in grading students on a holistic level.
