[Class 1 to 5]

Curriculum for Primary Level

Primary education at The Bharath Academy ranges from the first grade to the third grade. Our curriculum empowers natural curiosity at this age in learners, to explore and discover concepts in and around the world. Our primary curriculum endeavours to provide a comprehensive learning experience and foster a rich variety of approaches to teaching and learning that cater to the different needs of individual students.

The curriculum is entirely focused on encouraging the students to ask questions, both big and small. This helps them learn and at the same time, grasp what they learn. Our curriculum is centred around this methodology. It engages the student’s imagination while working with concrete materials to gain academic experience. The program is interdisciplinary, hands-on, experimental and open-ended, presented in an environment of mutual respect and appreciation.

The curriculum is planned and organized in a systematic manner. It aims to enable learners to acquire self-confidence, nurture curiosity, develop competencies, and other pertinent skills that have a long term impact.

It emphasizes the importance of literacy, numeracy, language development, values, attitudes, cross-cutting issues, and consistent assessment.
