BOMIS aims to make learning purposeful and progressive while promoting achievement of educational aims and objectives in a planned and positive manner.
The Primary School at Birla Open Minds International School, Indore builds a strong foundation for students to be active learners. By learning how to connect the dots and make connections on their own, students at our school are able to engage with their curiosity in a positive and productive manner.
With our abled teachers, the classrooms at Birla Open Minds International School create conditions that uncover conceptual understandings and achieve academic excellence. This practice produces critical and creative thinkers, problem-posers and solvers, and makes for effective communicators and happy inquirers.
Strong academic education comes from quality curriculum, small class sizes, technologically advanced teaching aids, and careful monitoring of every student’s progress.
A typical day involves studying some of the core subjects including Math, English, Science, Social Science along with special classes in Art, Music, Sports and Drama. Life outside school includes community service and field trips that make the educational experience at Birla Open Minds International School more enriching.
Scholastic and Co-Scholastic approach in Primary Years
In Birla Open Minds International School, the Scholastic and Co-Scholastic subjects go hand in hand and assist the BOMISItes to rise to excellence.
SCHOLASTIC AND CO-SCHOLASTIC APPROACH
Our Primary Years curriculum is age appropriate. It is based on learning outcomes and progressive teaching, integrating the concepts, processes and ways of thinking drawn from the diverse disciplines of subject areas.
We begin the journey with the Scholastic subjects:
- English Language Arts
- Third Language
- Environmental Studies
- Information and Communication Technology
The Co-scholastic subjects are:
- Performing Arts
- Visual Arts
- Physical, Social, Health Education
- Physical Education, Yoga & Sports (SPEED)
- Soul Science
The six intergrated themes help the learners in Grades 1-4 make meaningful connections through the immersive process, wherein a thematic focus straddles all areas of learning, each theme with a duration of 4 to 6 weeks.
At BOMIS, we conduct Filler Weeks and Subject Weeks to develop various skills, such as, reading skills, writing skills, listening skills, speaking skills, mathematical and scientific skills.
The Curricula for grades 1-4 are thoughtfully planned to ensure that each child at school enjoys these years in learning. Discovery and creative engagement and research on how the brain learns best, developmental appropriateness, the theory of Multiple Intelligences and the National Curricular Framework, have guided the planned curriculum.
Learning environment is an affirmative and enabling one. Bright airy learning spaces, creative learning centers, library, integrated laboratories, ICT laboratories, exciting and interactive display boards, create and environment that catalyses learning.
Assessment is an ongoing process. It guides the learners in their pursuit of learning. Theme End Assessments and Term End Assessments ensure timely feedback on degree of achievement of individual as well as grade-level outcomes. These, in turn guide teachers and parents to provide challenge or support as per need in a ‘timely’ and ‘effective’ manner. The progress of each child is shared through detailed report books along with a portfolio of documented work, making learning visible to all.
All these thoughtful processes ensure the fulfillment of our ultimate goal of teaching in a way that all students learn and develop various skills, such as, reading, writing, listening, speaking, communication, problem-solving, citizenship, collaboration, leadership and creative and critical thinking.
