The main goal of the school is to concentrate on what they have learnt. The Primrose International School in Chennai is very clear about the way of teaching, The student should be strong in the concept and should not mug-up. The teacher keep on monitoring each and every child and take a complete care of the students.
As per the ICSE recommendations, we would have to attain minimum instructional hours of 1000 hr for classes VI to VIII.
Every class has a homework timetable that relates to the learning pathway that they are on. Homework is allotted keeping in mind the health and well-being of pupils, and judicious control is exercised by the class teachers, which is reviewed by the Head of the School. The co-operation of parents is essential for holistic development of the child. The amount of written work to be done at home will be controlled and there will be a proper division of written and reading homework.
Homework will differ from subject to subject, but reasonable homework would include:
At the Middle School stage (VI to VIII) pupils are required to maintain diaries, take up one or two projects or work on a hobby, suitable to their tastes and abilities and their economic support available from the parents.
It forms an important part of a student’s education since it reinforces the work covered in the classroom. Home assignments aim to develop the responsibility, time management, self-reliance, autonomy and perseverance in the child. It is important for parents to realize that while it is their role to assist their children in establishing a regular time for the purpose of completing home assignments, too much parental participation or involvement in projects/homework, defeats the purpose for which they are assigned.
Classes VI to VIII- Students should pass in English, an Indian Language, and Mathematics, and attain a satisfactory standard in other prescribed subjects at the examination. The evaluation of the work of the students will be on the basis of both the result of an examination and of the work done during the year. In standard IX, the conditions for promotions will be the same as those for passing the I.C.S.E. Examination.
At the end of each term, the teachers will give notes about the students to the parents, not fully based on written test-papers, but also mainly on their behavior, concentration, regularity and promptness to understand and their openness of intelligence. Teachers will take it as a discipline to rely more on inner contact, keen observation, and impartial outlook. For the students, it will be the necessity of understanding truly what they learn and not to repeat like a parrot what they have not fully understood. Thus, true progress will have been made in the teaching.
