English language plays an important role in education and society. A high command over the language is essential to communicate one’s ideas and emotions to others. The national curriculum focuses on promoting the standards of language and literacy skills of the children. It includes learning spellings, vocabulary, grammar, and punctuation. It checks the children’s reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. It helps them to use Standard English while speaking and writing.
Creative writing is more than just forming sentences one after the other. It encourages children’s imagination and inspires them to have fun while learning. Creative Writing asks the students to do expository, persuasive, narrative, fictitious and descriptive writing. They should know about the characters, setting, plot, conflict, and the resolution of a story. It checks the student’s imagination, creativity, composition skills, vocabulary, grammar, punctuation, etc.
Mathematics is an essential part of human thought and logic, and in understanding the world and ourselves. It helps us to build a mental discipline and encourages logical reasoning. Also mathematical knowledge helps a lot in understanding the contents of other school subjects such as science, social studies, and even music and art.
Mathematical literacy is taken to include basic computational skills, quantitative reasoning, spatial ability, etc. The aim is that all students can apply their learning to a variety of routine and non-routine problems by breaking down them into a series of simpler steps and finding the solutions and following a line of enquiry, guessing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument using mathematical language.
Today physics plays a crucial role in almost all fields. Despite important discoveries during the last four centuries, there are a number of open questions in physics and many areas of active research. Foundations of physics start at school, therefore instead of rote learning there should be learning by understanding concepts and logic. As a result, we could set up sharply minded researchers for the world. In order to train the next generation physicists, it is essential to start learning Physics from the early age itself. They key is to promote curiosity, make them think, and explore.
Chemistry is everywhere and in everything in the world around you! There is Chemistry behind everything you see, touch, and feel in the universe. Do you know why iron rusts? Why do eggs turn solid when you boil them? Why leaves change color? Being a fascinating subject, Chemistry has answers to all these questions.
It is one of the fundamental disciplines.
Chemistry is the study of the composition, structure, behavior and properties of matter, and the chemical reactions between the substances. Studying chemistry will help you to acquire valuable life skills like logical reasoning, observation, analysis, interpretation, presentation and many more skills which will help you to set your career.
The science of biology is evolving at a pace never seen before. Exciting developments in areas like gene-editing and synthetic biology are allowing us to repurpose and redesign the building blocks of life. Biology truly is the science of the 21st century, with biological research and its applications affecting every aspect of daily life – from fuel to food, from pharmaceuticals to farming, and from human health to the health of our environment.
We are awaiting a lot of revolutionary changes when Artificial Intelligence meets the Biotechnology!
Verbal Reasoning, as the name suggests, is problem solving based on words and language features. It consists of solving word problems, following written instructions to find the desired solution, identifying letter sequences, and solving letter and number based codes. This checks the child’s critical thinking skills, and ability to use prior knowledge to solve a new problem.
The breadth and depth of understanding, focus, familiarity, and structure seeking capabilities are also very important here.
Non-Verbal reasoning deals with the ability of a child to assess how well he/she can analyze visual data and solve problems using their logical ability. It includes spatial reasoning skills.
The training should focus on developing skills around performing visual analogies, recognising causal relationships in pictured situations, recognizing and remembering visual sequences, thinking and reasoning abstractly to solve problems etc.
