Primary School Curriculum
Education for a Better World
The Hearth’s Primary School Curriculum is designed to help schools deliver a broad and balanced curriculum that suits their context, culture and ethos. The comprehensive approach taken while developing this curriculum is a holistic and integrated one that considers fundamental aspects of life that can be merged within classroom learning. The curriculum keeps in mind the equality of treatment and of outcomes, where diversity, differences and disadvantages are considered. An essential purpose of the structure of this curriculum is to remove prejudices and complexes transmitted through the social environment. Our curriculum has the potential to connect knowledge to life outside of school and inculcate learning that is shifted away from rote methods. This curriculum has been designed to provide the overall development of children, making exams more flexible and integrated into classroom life while also nurturing an overriding identity informed by caring concerns within the democratic polity of the country. The curriculum can enforce these fundamental ideologies and concerns of learning through the course of different subjects.
The curriculum focuses on hands-on learning where the students will not only be gaining theoretical knowledge but will also have practical ways in which to put those theories into practice. This kind of experiential learning is vital for young learners during their formative years as in this way we can focus more on the development of skills and the experiences that children will gain rather than solely on the output. The essence of our curriculum is to be able to mould young learners so that they can fully grasp the critical aspects of development in their ways, can explore their hidden interests and can develop their innate abilities and motor skills. The curriculum, therefore, focuses on learning not only through textbooks but also on integrating abilities through the various subjects.
The curriculum is designed to be low-resource, such that it remains accessible and adaptable for most schools. It is ready-to-use and is available as a set of seven books, including the philosophy of the curriculum, teacher guides, detailed lesson plans and ideas, and substantial worksheets.
