Middle Wing Curriculum and pedagogy

The Middle Wing comprises classes VI-VIII catering to the age group of 11 – 14 years. Middle school can be considered as the transition phase for students who have been used to looking up to a facilitator for anything they require. These students become young individuals by stepping into the middle wing where they learn to acquire resources independently.
The school follows a 5-day week schedule with school timings from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm.

ACADEMICS

The curriculum includes the instructional practices along with the learning experiences of students. It is a blend of Scholastic and Co – scholastic modules that provides a progressive learning platform for students to augment critical thinking. The aim is to deliver in-depth knowledge of all the concepts. Extensive use of technology supplements classroom teaching, thereby making learning an immersive and enjoyable experience.

Language and Literacy DevelopmentHomework assigned to students is a stimulating revision exercise, generally in the form of worksheets. Considering the recommendations of the NEP (New Education Policy 2020), activity-based learning in all subjects is emphasized at KRM. The teaching methodology ensures that education imparted not only develops the foundational and high order cognitive capacities but also improves social, ethical, and emotional dispositions.

We emphasize spoken English to enrich verbal communication skills such as pronunciation and diction, coupled with excellent reading and writing skills. Educational trips and excursions in India and overseas are organized frequently to make learning interesting and meaningful through exploration and adventure. Co-curricular activities form an essential part of the curriculum to amplify students’ abilities through myriads of talent execution opportunities. Along with subject lessons, the school encourages sports and physical education to maintain a healthy balance between education and exercise. It also instills team spirit, sportsmanship, and discipline in students.

The Government of India has also recognized our school as a ‘FIT INDIA’ School appreciating the efforts made by us under the FIT INDIA campaign.

    Students are encouraged to participate in activities/projects which involve skills like critical thinking, innovation, teamwork, and creativity at School, District, State, National and International levels. While working on such projects, students prepare themselves to step forward as future leaders possessing 21st-century skills.
  • Exposure to Experiential & Hands-On Learning
    Needless to say, learning from experience is the best form of learning and K. R. Mangalam offers the best facilities to give the students a firsthand experience of what they learn.
  • Atal Tinkering Lab (ATL) – With a vision to cultivate young minds as neoteric innovators, the ATL lab is an initiative by the NITI Ayog which fosters scientific temperament, innovation, and creativity among learners. The ATL conducts different activities ranging from regional and national level competitions, exhibitions, workshops, on problem-solving, designing and fabrication of products, and lecture series at periodic intervals. This helps the learners to think, evolve, and ideate. Young learners get an opportunity to undertake real-world tasks with the tools and equipment provided to them for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) learning.
  • Space & Astronomy – Astronomy is an excellent way of teaching the basic principles of science to create an intelligent and analytic global community. These classes offer recreational science solutions and skill development workshops that inculcate a scientific temper in students.

  • 1Workshops
  • 2Coffee mornings

  • 4Morning assemblies

  • 6Exchange Programmes

To develop global personalities, we provide opportunities to our students where they can interact with students of other countries and exchange views physically or virtually.

Seminars and Workshops
Seminars and workshops are an innovative and welcomed step towards modern education. A workshop offers an environment completely different from that of a classroom where students get a chance to interact with renowned resource persons from different fields who assist them to solve their queries on a particular topic. It further helps students enhance their oratory skills and come forward as confident individuals in the form of participants in discussions.

PROJECT-BASED LEARNING (PBL) Project-Based Learning is a learning methodology through which students gain knowledge and acquire skills by working on a concept, idea, or problem for an extended period. A ‘PROJECT’ is a process that keeps learners involved in research, solving problems, innovating, creating, and presenting.

K.R.Mangalam engages its students in several projects throughout the session. While some projects take a week or a fortnight to be completed, some take more than a month. An example of one such project is the Multi-Cultural Fair put up by the students of Grade VII. To raise Global Citizens and to acquaint students with different cultures across the globe, students were assigned a project of putting up a Multi-Cultural Fair. The details of the project are as follows:

  • 1Topic: Multi-Cultural Fair (Cultures of different countries)
  • 2Type of Project: Group Project (Each class assigned one country)
  • 3Aspects to be covered: Language, food, clothing, architecture, music, dance forms, and festivals
  • 4Time allocated: 30 days
Middle Wing

Outcome: On receiving the project details students started researching the countries allocated to their respective classes. Teams were formed to probe deeper into the sub-topics followed by group discussions on how to showcase the culture. Different groups of students started working on costumes, music, PowerPoint presentations, props, display, invitations, and other details. Finally, after a month-long preparation, students exhibited the culture of different countries in their classrooms transforming one room into a different country. This fair not just presented the culture of a country but also illustrated impeccable skills developed by the students. They learned to work in collaboration, think critically, solve problems, display their creativity, innovate and most importantly, express themselves confidently.

ASSESSMENTS

To infuse a strong education base and prepare students to step into higher classes, the uniform assessment plays a key role.
