Playway Activities Under Igcse Cambridge Curriculum
Children need to feel safe, and have classrooms that combine wonder and energy, while fostering a tone that allows even the most quiet and sensitive child an equal opportunity to interact with the teachers and helpers. For the Foundation years children. We have a beautiful park providing Swings, Sliding chutes Rocking Boats, Attractive & Educational Toys, Play way system and teaching aids. We have advanced multimedia gizmos and gadgets as well as the arrangements for providing education through a well equipped Computer Lab, so as not to give feelings to the small children that they are burdened in any way. Children learn through their senses and movements through everyday activities i.e. Imitation, Practice & instruction. Each day in school is different and filled with new discoveries. Education here is a joyful, creative and an exhilarative experience.

In the Foundation years, the child has an opportunity to like a number of other children of approximately his/her/own age. He/She learns to make friends to participate in group activities.
Play activities consume most of the child’s time and through play he/she is learning about himself/herself and about his/her place in the world. This play world stimulates all phases of the child’s growth such as physical, social, emotional and intellectual growth.
The Foundation Years equipment and material is specially planned to meet the child’s needs. The child is challenged to use his/her large and small muscles by slides, swings, play, using drawing paper and other equipments. They enjoy the freedom of rhythm.
The child learns that he/she is now a member of a large social group. It is helpful if they know few children who will be in their group; they gradually begin to find friends and learn to take criticism. They reach a better understanding of their relationship with their parents.
As the child comes in contact with many children, they have to learn eventually to share both their possessions and affection with others. They find satisfaction in independent activity as well as pleasure in group experience.
The child learns to take interest in Mathematics through concept of numbers, variety of concrete Materials, Simple Addition and Subtractions are taught.
Science and Health are taught as one of the major subjects to increase the interest, appreciation and knowledge of the natural beauty of child’s surrounding. Challenging materials and learning experiences in the class, both indoor and outdoor and on the playground help the child develop independence in solving his/her own problems.
The overall aim is to develop skill in all phases of communication listening, speaking and writing.
