Senior Elementary (Grades 5 -8)
UNDERSTAND, BE AWARE, REASON, CREATE
The students of Grades 5 and 6 continue their junior elementary structure where in two grade teachers work with the students in each class. In Grades 7 and 8, they move slowly into subject teaching, following the national curriculum by enriching it with cocurricular and beyond the curriculum activities. As grade 8 students have to appear for the board examination, their curriculum becomes more challenging and rigorous.
The senior elementary students learn to balance increasingly challenging coursework with lots of choice of extracurricular activities in the arts and sports fields. It is a time of rapid growth. At Nisarga Batika School, we make the most of this critical period, helping each studentto take ownership of his or her education, choices and preferences.
As students discover their unique talents, they are nurtured into lifelong passions. This is the time when the students start entering into school sports teams, and arts and music groups. They are given the required support in areas of arts, music and drama, sports, STEAM, and other areas of their interest. The academic team and the non-teaching faculty both work in coherence to understand students’ interests, and to serve as guides, coaches and mentors to the students as they set goals for the future –supporting them in deeper exploration, making them more aware and understanding.
