Primary School

The primary school at DPSG Sehore covers a period of 5 years wherein the scope and depth of learning increases gradually, while opportunities for play and creative expression continue to complement learning. The emphasis in the first two years (Grades 1 and 2) is on the language with the introduction of the second language, on mathematics in practical terms and on the environment, encouraging observation and discovery.

Children also use the computer as a tool for learning and communication. Great emphasis is given to reading, self-expression, and concept building through storytelling, theatre, art, dance, and music.

In the upper primary (Grades 3 to 5) children begin to use their acquired skills in language and mathematics to take the initiative in learning, and teaching is designed to this purpose. Teachers ensure whole-class learning and the purpose of assessment is to reflect the quality of the student’s understanding.

There is a broadening of the curriculum in grades 4 and 5 as well as an increase in cognitive challenge. the introduction of a third language through choices on offer adds to the global perspective in their learning.
