A TYPICAL DAY
INNOVATIVE TEACHING METHODOLOGY
The school follows the five day week pattern. A regular, productive working day at DPS Sharjah is divided into 7 periods. The children get a refreshing break to rejuvenate their minds and stretch their limbs. The day includes a ‘home room’ period when students spend valuable time with their class teachers. This time is an opportunity for them to share experiences or simply bond with their classmates and class teacher. All assemblies, theme week activities, inter-house activities, practices for events are held during the home room period so as to leave the rest of the day for the set class schedules.
In the primary section all teaching is thematic and activity based. The syllabus is set by the school. The indigenous curriculum created by our team of talented teachers focuses on hands-on learning through lab work, project work, games and logical and lateral thinking activities. It is planned in a qualitative way, thinking about the relative priorities of different aspects of the work, as well as about allocations of time.
The syllabus has been created in a manner that aims at making the child love coming to school. Syllabus is flexible and therefore gives each child the freedom to learn at their pace. Each month is a THEME MONTH, wherein the theme is learnt through age appropriate hands- on learning experiences. Cross curricular teaching takes place through activities, discussions, stories, even class assemblies and carefully organized field trips.
KGI to GRADE II
Here teaching goes into formal mode. The syllabus is set by the school maintaining the ethos of activity based learning. The curriculum focuses on hands-on learning through lab work, project work, games and logical and lateral thinking activities.
It is planned in a qualitative way, thinking about the relative priorities of different aspects of the work, as well as about allocations of time. Every classroom at DPS Sharjah is a THINKING CLASSROOM. Our children are encouraged to ask the ‘WHY’s and WHY NOT’s and that is how we learn as we teach. French is introduced as an optional second language in Grade III giving students a choice between French and Hindi.
GRADE III, IV, V
Learning of languages is taken to a new level with our state of the art LANGUAGE LABS. The STEM labs add a whole new perspective to learning MATH and SCIENCE. Children learn through hands on activities which help them to connect the topic taught to real life experiences. The school also has fully equipped COMPUTER LABS for students of grades 1 – 5.
The labs serve as a refreshing change from class room teaching. Each lab is equipped with state of the art interactive smart boards to make learning and teaching an exciting and unique experience. Students visit the LAB once a week for each subject.
A week in a month is chosen to experiment and explore a certain theme. This concept enhances individual participation, research skills, group work, creativity in presentation and helps latent talent surface and bloom.
