Doing well requires much more than rote learning. As COVID-19 has shown us, it is not just survival of the fittest – you also need to be fast. You need to be able to adapt quickly, assess the situation, take a decision and move ahead. With the multitude of activities that we invest time in, these skills develop well at an early age.

To help children get comfortable with Math, we start with Mental Math right from Sr KG and there are special periods for it in the timetable of Std. 1 and 2 as well. Our Std 2 students are able to understand and break down most of the problems of Std 4 students, due to the learnings in the Mental Math class.
This is a special subject to help further develop English skills for Std 1 and Std. 2. In Language Arts the students create original works – just like an artist – but by using just their skills in the English language. They develop their own story and at the end of the year, parents have a published book to read that their child has written. You can read more about this here.
This is one of the many advantages of Walnut School.
