The Primary Years in MRIS-46, Gurugram encompasses Grades II-V. It is the age group which lays the foundation of formal education in children. We impart education not only through books, but through real-life experiences in a safe and nurturing environment with loving facilitators. Our well- thought school curriculum celebrates the uniqueness of the child as is expressed in each child’s personality, intelligence and potential for development and progress. It is designed to nurture the child in all dimensions of their life- spiritual, moral, cognitive, emotional, imaginative, aesthetic, social and physical. It focuses on the 21st century skills in all the students- Language and Communication skills, Analytical skills, Leadership skills are a few to mention.
Understanding differences, Civic Literacy, Community Outreach Programs, Edu-Trips, care for the environment and adopting United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG) are an integral part for the students of primary wing. All these activities are interwoven into the curriculum along with the seven pillars of the learning areas- Languages and Literacy, Numeracy, CREST, Sports and Well-Being, Performing Arts, Visual Arts, and Life Skills- Soft Skills and Technical Skills. The amalgamation of the seven pillars of learning, the methodology, execution of the curriculum, and the diverse aspects of assessment help us set the stage for a stable and balanced education for the students in Primary Wing.
OPPORTUNITIES AT MRIS-46
Besides giving special emphasis on academic excellence, MRIS provides freedom and space for individual expression and exploring opportunities for personality and skill development. Especially, the most important years of a human life i.e. till the age of 10-11 years, are given utmost priority for all-round development.
While various inter-school competitions give opportunity to students to showcase their skills, intra -school competitions such as Clan competitions at various levels give them a platform to hone their skills. On one hand, where the school encourages students to participate in these competitions, on the other hand, the teachers guide and facilitate other students to tap their hidden potential. Different class-wise and grade-wise activities based on language development, speaking skills, visual art, music and dance, theatre etc. not only help children develop these skills but also provide an opportunity for self-expression.
Emphasis is given to incorporate activities based on differentiated learning while planning the syllabus, thus giving equal opportunity to all. While hands-on activities and research work help children to analyse and derive a solution to a given problem, Edu-trips provide an opportunity to examine the world and surroundings. Making self-learners is the motto of MRIS.
Makershala takes them into the world of technology while developing scientific temperament and provides them opportunities for new innovations. We believe that in Primary school giving them exposure to various sports the school has to offer will help them explore their own strengths for a particular sport.
We believe that this ‘Life is a stage’ and each one of us is performing on it. So, we also encourage full participation of our young learners during stage performances on Annual days, Theme-based Class Assemblies and Sports day. Soft skill development programmes, Community reach programmes and Annual projects provide children an opportunity to look at the future with a different perspective keeping human and moral values alive.
“Opportunities are in abundance ……. Go grab it!”
