Welcome to Primary School – G I – V
Letters are put together to make words, Words are put together to make sentence. Here in our Primary school program, sentences are framed together to make a beautiful paragraph. Primary education is typically the first stage of formal education, coming after Kindergarten and before Middle school. The primary education is meant to educate the kids with the basics of education.
Primary education begins from G I to G V after completing Kindergarten. In Jesus School, Primary School children become more matured and self dependent. They start eating by themselves; they knew to use the restroom and actively participate in all activities and games. Primary school children get their first opportunities to meet and understand people from different religions, races and socio economic statuses, as well as people with different disabilities. Students are taught basic lifetime skills like reading, writing, spelling, interpersonal communication and concentration.
Our primary school students also learn good study habits including:
- Time management
- Multi-tasking and organization
- Short and long-term planning
- Test/Exam Preparation
The main subjects on which our primary education teachers focus in the classroom are the three languages – English, Tamil, Hindi; Math and EVS – Science and Social. In addition, children also learn Computer, GK and Physical education. We reinforce basic math and reading skills. This leads to reading fluency and comprehension, which assists in logic and problem-solving skills as the child matures. Basic number recognition as well as mathematical operations are emphasized for math. This creates a solid foundation for the child to tackle more complex math areas in higher classes.
Children are trained to do art and craft work. They spend a day in a week in several activities like Karate, Yoga, Silambam, Western and Classical dance and Music Instruments. To keep our children healthy and physically fit, every day evening, they play games like Football, Basketball, Volleyball, Swimming, Skating, Cycling and Athletics.
G I & II stands as a threshold from Kindergarten to Primary and a transition period for all our children. So here we take at-most care and monitoring to make sure all our children are strong in the basic foundation skills.
In Grade 1, children are once again revised with all they learned in Kindergarten. Once they are clear with the basics, we prepare them to read, write and learn by themselves. Teachers make sure that the children are able to understand what they teach. They encourage students to interact with them and make them get interested in what they learning.
We use the traditional method of teaching using white board, and then teaching is aided with Smart class videos and models or kits. Children are guided to do projects and activities based on the lesson taught. The same methods are been used in G II. Children in G II get more advanced in learning process. We are keen in making all our children 100% perfect in reading and writing both English and Tamil.
By the time our children complete their G II, they are trained well enough to take care of their day to day affair both at home and school. They are been taught all good manner to behave wherever they move around.
