What exactly is primary education? Is it just crayons, understanding, addition, and dodgeball? Absolutely not. In primary school, there is more going on. Primary education is the most important and meaningful because it prepares children to face challenges, develops fundamental skills, and fosters physical, mental, and emotional development. It is the first stage of formal education and spans the ages of six to ten, or grades one through four.
We follow a theme-based international curriculum in grades 1-4 that is truly inter-disciplinary and integrates all concepts, resulting in different levels of learning. FFGS emphasises not only the accumulation of knowledge but also its application in real life. The emphasis in these grades is on skill development, including life skills and experiential learning. English, Hindi, Math, EVS, and Computers are among the subjects taught. The emphasis is on the development of analytical and critical thinking skills, the acquisition and development of communication skills, the instillation of fundamental values, and the learning of how to use technology.
Children are continuously assessed, and the teacher’s observations are documented. The curriculum includes regular activities such as projects, assignments,
worksheets, field trips, nature walks, guest lectures, creative writing, and spoken English.
