Classroom

A typical classroom at Primary section at Deens is a vibrant and enriched learning space. What strikes you at first glance is that our class sizes are intimate – restricted to a small group of 30 students and 5 sections.
Every day begins with circle time: Here the teacher discusses with the children Life skills and values which need to be reinforced time and again to ensure good behaviour and attitude in children.

Assessments

At  Deens Academy, we follow a system of continuous multi-disciplinary assessment, which could be formal or informal. We also follow a differentiated system of assessment to cater to the varied needs of children.

The child seeking entry into Deens is evaluated on his/her skills and abilities in order to determine the level in comparison to the expectation of the class into which admission is sought. This helps the teacher to modulate the classroom transaction in order to meet the child’s needs.

With the firm belief that education touches the mind as well as the being and each influences the other, information regarding each student is collected, taking into account their ability to apply knowledge, their learning process and how they conduct themselves in different situations. These findings form the basis of a continuous feedback process to the student and parents. A systematic follow up programme is built around these evaluations, be it on the academic, co-scholastic or value/attitudinal front.

Formative assessments are marked on varied tasks within a class, homework, class work, projects, presentations- each of which lends to assessment, projecting a different aspect of the child’s learning. We follow the CBSE pattern of cycle reviews,  one  formative assessments in each term and a summative assessment at the end of every term ( September SA1 and March SA2). A brief description of the portions covered and marking scheme is as follows
