A typical day at BNPS Middle Wing

A day in BNPS for a middle schooler starts with getting together with the whole school to pray. After few minutes of prayer and national Anthem, the children are into hobby classes. They can be seen sweating it out in basketball court, football field, cricket pitch – exercising and honing their skills. Melodious Ragas, foot taps of dances and stringing of guitar can be heard from music room. The quieter ones are en grossed in their sculptures and putting shape to clay.

After an hour of rigorous activities, begins the academics. Here the children are engaged in learning by going through an experience observing and reflective on it, finding a conceptual framework and then experimenting.

 

Informally at the stairs, children sitting with teachers and discussing their problems is a common sight. Seeing children in the library is a delight too. Sitting comfortably on the floor covered with chatai – they are seen discussing the book in hand in hushed tone.

Circle time for the classes again gives opportunity to talk about issues in the class and arrive at the solution together.

The day ends with children going back happily, catching up with friends and classmates.

Her philosophy for learning is that each child is unique, and each child learns in a different way. She believe in hands-on experiences,

Projects based learning
Schools are seen as preparatory lab for children to deal with the future, this preparation is based on the assumption that the future is going to be static and stable and that requirements/demands of the future will be same as that of today. However, Dewey has pointed out that future is always dynamic and unpredictable; therefore a school should not prepare the child for a predictable future. Instead, it should arm the child with the skills to attune herself according to the needs of any situation. Developing sophisticated thinking in children is one of the most primary functions of schooling which makes child capable of dealing with all kinds of situations in life, this exacts from school to inculcate in child the qualities of an active problem solver.

BNPS believes in real life learning – not just learning THROUGH real life but also FOR real life.

The abilities FOR real life that we focus on developing in students, through inter-disciplinary curriculum based projects, include collaboration, making effective presentations, reflecting on the process followed and product created , critical questioning and giving direct feedback.

Project Based Learning helps makes learning relevant and useful to students addressing real world concerns, and developing real world skills. Many of the skills learned through Project Based Learning are those desired by today's employer, including the ability to work well with others, make thoughtful decisions, take initiative, and solve complex problems. Students become naturally motivated because of the meaningfulness of the project.

In order to learn meaningfully in this context they go for excursions, interact with resource persons (from within and outside the school), conduct activities and experiments. After using these opportunities to learn, the students are given a task to demonstrate their learning. The presentations of these tasks are made either in front of an internal audience (students of another class) or an external audience (parents). This process is known as project culminations and happens at the end of a project.

Typically at BNPS grades 4 – 7 we have two projects in the whole academic year. 

Mathematics Teaching at BNPS

(Middle School)

In consonance with the aims stated in NCF 05', the goal of mathematics teaching at BNPS is considered to be "mathematization of the child's thinking". This in action means clarity of thought, ability to pursue assumptions to logical conclusions, an ability to handle abstractions, and having an approach to problem solving. A crucial implication of this lies in offering a multiplicity of approaches while teaching instead of teaching procedures to arrive at right answers. Such learning environments provide opportunity where children are exposed to think 'mathematically'. We see this as crucial for establishing a link between school mathematics and the world around, helping children apply their understanding in day-to-day life, and think logically in a deductive manner. This also keeps the fear of mathematics away by helping children deduce links and create personal algorithms that offers a sense of achievement.

At the same time it becomes important to not only build understanding of concepts (numbers, geometry, data handling etc), but give equal weightage to skills like visualization, estimation and communicating ideas mathematically, so that they not only are able to solve problems involving maths in their daily lives, but also are able to perceive things logically and create new knowledge.
The learners enter middle school mathematics with a basic number sense: counting, sorting & reading number; computational skills with reference to simple calculations & problem solving; considerable experience of exploration with respect to shape, size & measurement using manipulative; familiarity of story problems; knowledge of simple mathematics language and an eye for pattern observation.
In middle school, learners start building up their own conjectures; try to gain mastery of basic skills and enhance the understanding of the key concepts, they also work on facts and start building the rules and require challenging situations to work on.

Following are the major instructional strategies followed at BNPS:-

  • Connecting Mathematics with learners' experiences & previous knowledge.
  • Providing a non threatening environment, where learners commit mistakes and learn from their mistakes i.e. providing supportive environment where both failures & successes are valued.
  • Focusing on application of concepts and skills by giving more importance to process of solving problems, instead of giving sole importance to finding correct solution.
  • Giving examples but letting the children reach the generalizations. Letting the children use their own strategies and then decide which strategy is better/best.
  • Using deductive approach i.e. let the students struggle with the problems & come out with their own solutions/ strategies rather than teachers providing correct solutions. This requires scope of open ended problems that can be approached through different ways.
  •  Linking conceptual and procedural knowledge i.e. providing scope for observation & application of the connections of learning in real life & with other subjects.

SOCIAL SCIENCE

BNPS Social Science Curriculum is structured on the principles of NCF 2005, which encompasses diverse concerns of society and includes a wide range of content, drawn from the disciplines of history, geography, political science and economics. Social Science Curriculum prepares students to understand, to participate, to face the challenges that come in their lives and make informed decisions about their world. Social Science Curriculum enables students to acquire and learn to use the skills, knowledge, and attitudes that prepare them to be competent and responsible citizens throughout their lives. Competent and responsible citizens are informed and thoughtful, and participate in their communities actively. It provides them with skills for productive problem solving and decision making like assessing issues and making thoughtful value judgments.

Students of the social science employ a methodology that requires them to ask questions, form a hypothesis, collect and analyze a variety of data before drawing a reasonable conclusion that is communicated to other people. When students present their findings, they demonstrate that they have searched carefully and thought critically about the sources of information and the evidence. The knowledge and understanding gained from the study of the social science is applied to evaluate differing perspectives on historical, political, economic, geographic, or social issues.

Social Science At middle level
The focus of Social Science Curriculum at Middle school is on the development of essential knowledge and skills. Students must develop a thorough understanding of basic concepts through hands on experiences that they can apply in a wide range of situations. Social Science Curriculum focuses to develop the skills in learners that are vital to encounter real life problems of society so that they develop the understanding of democratic values. These values help them to evaluate different points of view and examine information critically to solve problems and make decisions on a variety of issues. They also acquire skills of inquiry and communication through field studies and other research projects; through the consideration of various forms of historical evidence.
