Pre-Primary School Curriculum


In Pre Primary, the focus is on LSRW in which :-
Listening Skills: Includes songs, stories and poems.
Speaking Skills: Enables the child to read aloud stories, converse and recite poems. We also encourage students to participate in Show and Tell Activity.
Reading Skills: At Pre- Primary stage the sounds are taught in a specific order (not alphabetically) using the holistic approach- visual, aural and physical. This enables children to begin building words. Children also practice blending phonemes for reading through various activities and segmenting phonemes for spelling. For enhancing reading skills, we follow 3 steps to good reading:
   1. Read aloud the words at least 3 times.
   2. Call out the word and let the children point the word.
   3. Point to a word (at random) and the child read it aloud.
Writing Skills: Pre – writing skills are the fundamental skills children need to develop before they are able to write so we begin with strokes which helps them to form letters . Also, they learn to write lower case a to z in order. We develop the skills to comprehend in the form of ‘Fill in the blank, Tick the correct answer, Opposites, Circle the odd word and answer the given questions.’


प्राथमिक स्तर पर विद्यार्थियों को अपनी मातृभाषा का ज्ञान होना आवश्यक है । इसी विचार को ध्यान में रखते हुए, हमारे विद्यालय में पूर्व प्राथमिक स्तर से ही हिन्दी भाषा को पाठ्यक्रम में शामिल किया गया है । प्रारम्भिक स्तर पर विद्यार्थियों में निम्न चार कौशलों के विकास हेतु प्रयत्न किया जाता है :-
1. सुनना:- कहानियों द्वारा ।
2. बोलना:- कहानियों पर आधारित प्रश्नोत्तर एवं कविताओं द्वारा
3. पढ़ना:- पाठ्य पुस्तक एवं कार्य पत्रक द्वारा ।
4. लिखना:- सभी वर्ण, स्वर एवं व्यंजन का लेखन, क्रमानुसार मात्राओं की जानकारी दी जाती हैं। हर मात्रा को लिखने तथा पढ़ने का पर्याप्त अभ्यास कराया जाता हैं।


In Math, at Pre-Primary level, we focus on laying the ground for sound development of Pre-Number Concepts and Numbers 1 to 10.

  • Number representation.
  • Counting strategies
  • Matching & Sorting.
  • Shapes
  • Patterns.
  • Quantity & Quality.
  • Learning by doing.

To develop ability to think and analyze, we include Jodo Gyan Kit and worksheets for evidence of learning.


Primary School Curriculum


Environmental Studies (EVS) at the primary stage, the aim is to make students sensitized, explore, empowered and develop scientific attitude (i.e. Skills such as observation, discussion, explanation, experimentation, logical reasoning, through interaction) towards their immediate or wider surroundings through Arvind Gupta Toys & Experiments, projects and models, hands-on activities, research & application based exercises, SDGs, Chalk Talk, Making Connections, Atlas Hunt & Map Skills, Graphic Organizers, labelled diagrams, etc.

In Grade-III, the learner identifies, differentiates and classifies animals, plants, our helpers, types of houses, building material used, indoor and outdoor games, means of transport, relates processes and phenomenon of water cycle, directions, symbols used in a map, causes of water pollution, measures of conservation of water and environment relate himself with the directions and apply scientific concepts in day to day life, explicit creativity in making pots, maps designs and patterns on clothes by using available resources.

In Grade-IV, the learner identifies, differentiates and classifies parts of flowers, features of birds and animals, science location of objects or places, relationships with and among family members and extended families; explains or describes herd or group behaviours in birds and animals, changes and families & times, different skilled works, their inheritance and training in daily life, process of producing and procuring from source to home; groups the animals, birds, plants, objects, waste material for their observable features; suggests ways for hygiene, reduce, recycle, reuse and takes care of living beings, resources; records observations, experiences or information for objects, activities places visited, in different ways and predicts patterns.

In Grade-V, the learner identifies signs, directions, location of different objects/landmarks/places visited in maps and predicts directions; differentiates and classifies; explains and describes the super senses and unusual features of animals, the use of technology and process of basic needs in our daily life, the interdependence among animals, plants and humans, the role and functions of different institutions, guesses, estimates spatial quantities and time in simple standard units, verifies using simple tools or set-ups, records observations, experiences or information in an organised manner and predicts patterns in activities; establishes linkages among terrain, climate, resources and cultural life.

Language learning makes the learners capable to understand and to be understood.

We at St. Stephen’s work with a vision to make every child succeed in enhancing their learning skills through innovative teaching methods using SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time- Bound) goals.

In Grade I & II, the focus under reading is to enable the child to read simple words, sentences, short stories and script on posters, newspaper, tickets, etc with proper pronunciation and fluency with the help of stories and text. Through reading, comprehension skills are also developed.

Listening and speaking enables the child to understand what they hear or read. It also helps the child to read aloud stories and recite poems with appropriate pause, rhyme, actions, expressions and pronunciation. To enhance the speaking skills of the child, a platform is given to narrate short stories in their own words and speak a few sentences through Show & Tell activities

Writing facilitates the child to go through the text to understand and identify the story elements (Characters & setting) and answer 5 WH questions with the help of Graphic Organizers.

In Classes III to V, the aim to learn English is to make the learners acquire proficiency for meaningful communication, develop interest and appreciation of Literature and competency-based learning skills for LSRW (i.e. Listening, Speaking, Reading & Writing) in integrated manner in real life situation.

The focus under LSRW is to enable learners to attain fluency in reading with proper expressions & intonations, comprehension and appreciation of different kinds of texts such as prose, poetries, plays.

Listening, Speaking & Writing facilitate the learners enhance their communication skill, vocabulary, make them skilled in framing meaningful & grammatically correct sentences, make them confident to describe and express their views about their surroundings in real life situations and help them to become more proficient through different activities such as show & tell, debates, elocution, sentence stretch, draw and write, anchor charts, skill based comprehension passages, writing templates, hands-on activities to understand grammar concepts, etc.

Literary elements help them to understand, analyse, compare & contrast different situations and characters, lead them towards problem solving approach and make them confident to articulate their thoughts and ideas. It makes the learners aware about do's and don'ts in real life situations.

Learning Outcomes in English address the issues of diversity in language, culture, and multifaceted abilities of learners. At this stage learners are expected to:

  • Develop an understanding of what they hear in formal and informal settings.
  • Develop an ability to speak fluently and accurately in a variety of situations meaningfully.
  • Develop an ability to read with comprehension and not merely decode.
  • Write a coherent piece undergoing various stages and processes of writing.
  • Use language as a skill for real life purposes.
  • Develop grammatical competencies moving from procedural knowledge (from use or meaning) to declarative knowledge (form).
  • Speaking & Listening Skill: The focus is to use the Assessment of Speaking & Listening Skills for improving learners’ competency to listen for basic interpersonal, instructional and academic purposes. The teacher hence needs to ensure that these skills are consciously addressed in the day-to-day classroom sessions. The learners have to be guided to develop and hone these skills of speaking and listening.

Learning is creation, not consumption. Knowledge is not something a learner absorbs but something a learner creates.

– George Courds

Social Science is a compulsory subject up to Secondary stage of school education. It is an integral component of general education because it helps the learners to understand the environment in its totality and developing a broader perspective and an empirical, reasonable and humane outlook. This is of crucial importance because it helps them grow into well-informed and responsible citizens with necessary attributes and skills for being able to participate and contribute effectively in the process of development and nation building.

The Social Science curriculum of Classes IX and X draws its content mainly from History, Geography, Political Science and Economics. Together they provide a comprehensive view of society over space and time, and in relation to each other. Each subject’s distinct methods of enquiry help the learners to understand society from different angles and form a holistic view.

In order to make the subject understandable and interesting, teaching techniques like discussion method, panel discussions, debates, talks, interview sessions, individual and group projects and research work are used. Besides these teaching-learning resources like podcast, videos, graphic organizers, charts, maps, case-studies, journals, DISHA and DIKSHA portal are used. Thus the Social Science Curriculum helps to develop social, cultural and analytical skills required to adjust to an increasingly interdependent world, and to deal with political and economic realities. This is necessary for understanding the world in which we live.
