Middle School - Grade 6 to 8

Being a Cambridge International School , we offer Cambridge Lower Secondary Programme for Grades 6-8. 

Cambridge Pathways gives students a clear path for educational success. Our curriculum for this programme is shaped as per our students' learning abilities with the help of curriculum framework provided by the Cambridge Assessment International Education.

Students develop skills and understanding in English, Mathematics and Science throughout the active and creative learning journey of this international programme. 

Language Arts

Cambridge Secondary 1 English enables learners to communicate confidently and effectively and to develop the skills to respond to a range of information, media and texts with understanding and enjoyment.

 

Learners who follow this framework will develop a first language competency in English based on a curriculum designed to be successful in any culture and to promote cross-cultural understanding.

 

Science

This curriculum framework covers four content areas: scientific enquiry, biology, chemistry and physics. Scientific enquiry is about considering ideas, evaluating evidence, planning investigative work, and recording and analysing data.

 

The scientific enquiry objectives underpin biology, chemistry and physics, which are focused on developing confidence and interest in scientific knowledge. Environmental awareness and some history of science are also part of the curriculum. 

 

Physical Education

Physical activity is part of every day life at Neerja Modi School. Younger students enjoy a curriculum, which includes fall skills, movement education, gymnastics, and team activities. As they move to higher classes,  skills associated with team sports are introduced.

Mathematics

The curriculum framework explores six content areas: number, algebra, geometry, measure, handling data and problem solving. The first five content areas are all underpinned by problem solving, which provides a structure for the application of mathematical skills.

 

Mental strategies are also an important part of the number content. The curriculum focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships, so that learners apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject.

 

Social Studies

This curriculum framework covers four content areas: scientific enquiry, biology, chemistry and physics. Scientific enquiry is about considering ideas, evaluating evidence, planning investigative work, and recording and analysing data.

 

The scientific enquiry objectives underpin biology, chemistry and physics, which are focused on developing confidence and interest in scientific knowledge. Environmental awareness and some history of science are also part of the curriculum. 

 

The Arts

The goals of the art curriculum are mastery of skills, accessibility to personal image making independence, global awareness and respect, not only for materials but for each other's work as well.

 

As the children build upon their art experiences, they become increasingly familiar with each process, gain in their mastery of technical skills and apply their more advanced knowledge to their individual efforts of creative expression.
