At Walnut, we believe that a strong hold over a language, especially English, is going to take a child places. So, to get the students comfortable with English, we expose them to the language in many different ways. Why not dedicate an entire quarter to studying a novel, we thought; and then made it work! At Walnut school, the last quarter of each academic year is dedicated to a novel, right from Std. 4. Students have to attempt a novel – based question in Std. 10 but reading a novel is a skill that cannot directly be acquired at that age. So we catch ’em while they are young, and introduce this concept at an earlier age.
We try and introduce activities interspersed with the ‘teaching’ to make learning fun. This activity is also aimed to develop a love for reading and nudge their imagination skills. The students of Std. 6 are currently studying Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and recently had a pre – Sorting Hat ceremony in class! They created combinations of the existing Houses and came up with their own unique 4 houses. They also created graphics to make badges for themselves.
At Walnut, we believe that academics can be fun too!
