Sishu Griha believes in making its students ‘computer-savvy’. To this effect, computer science is taught to students right from Class 1. The school has a well equipped computer lab with the latest amenities.
Our well equipped science labs enable our students to do their practical work in the form of experiments and verify concepts that are taught in class. Specimens that are shown create a lot of interest.
Over the years, the work rooms or the junior labs as they are termed have evolved into strongholds of ‘active learning’ for the Primary School students which is in recognition of the Montessori Method that advocates learning by doing.These junior labs that are different from the confines of a classroom provide the perfect stimuli for the child to discover , analyse and assimilate. The amalgamation of discovery, analysis and assimilation makes learning a ‘joyful process’ for the students. The joy is compounded by the fact that the child works at his own pace and he has the prerogative of working with materials of his choice.
A child between the age group of 6-10years has an inquisitive mind . The junior lab(work Room)activities are developed to satisfy this need. Subjects like Geography, History and Science are introduced in the form of stories e.g. how the Earth was formed, strange kinds of animals and plants found, the bacteria, galaxies and stars etc. The abstract concept of Maths is presented with the help of specially made materials e.g. positive and negative numbers, area, weight, volume etc. Children show a lot of enthusiasm in the interactive sessions by asking question like what will happen to Earth when the sun turns into a red giant or Does life exist on other planets?. It is a very happening and interesting journey of discovery for the students of Sishu Griha in the Junior Lab.
The Math Lab has proved to be the perfect panacea for the students of Sishu Griha as it has materials exclusively designed to redress the problems faced by the children in certain abstract math concepts.Working with the materials ensures clarity and reinforcement of various concepts covered under algebra , arithmetic and geometry and helps children in developing a liking for the subject .
A well ventilated cookery lab with a centrally placed working table and accessories like cutlery , refrigerator, cooking and baking appliances have enabled children to learn and perfect the art and style of cooking.
The teachers at Sishu Griha have access to state of the art computers with internet facilities that facilitate research work and power point presentations. The implementation of ClassWalk, a software, has revolutionized the preparation of the progress report. It has entailed swift entry of marks and attendance and helps teachers maintain a digital record of the non –academic performance of the students. Information can be accessed digitally.
