The lessons learnt during the child's early years are carried forward here.
An overview of the same:
At this level subjects are formally introduced to the child. We focus on the
oral as well as the written expression, thinking and mathematical skills. The
Junior School curriculum is child-centric and activity based so that learning is
made fun and enjoyable.
The approach is inquiry based, where children question, probe, brainstorm
and understand by doing things thereby promoting intellectual stimulation. A
range of activities are taken up to promote better understanding of concepts.
Recapitulation is done with the help of worksheets, quizzes etc prepared by the
Substantial number of hours in the timetable and ample opportunities are
provided to encourage children to explore a range of creative pursuits as well.
CGR follows a five day week consisting of 40 periods. The curriculum aims at
bringing about an integrated development of the child, needed to make one's
presence felt in today's world. At CGR every subject has an approach that is
different from the other for it has been incorporated keeping in mind the
learning outcomes specified for that particular subject area.
A brief understanding of the approach towards the core subjects:
We have developed MyPedia Curriculum which is the country's only fully-integrated learning programme that promises measurable improvement in cognitive skills of the learner. MyPedia integrates all learning and teaching tools in a well-designed manner.comprises of teaching plans which bring together.
The course book.
Videos and assessments.
Teachers' professional development and school support visits by specialists.
Specially crafted course books that use an Inter-disciplinary learning approach and a robust pedagogy.
Worksheets designed for multiple difficulty levels with an assessment rubric that helps to record overall performance of the learner.
Systematic teaching plans for the teacher.
At CGR children are encouraged to grow confident users of English in an active yet informal way. A three pronged strategy gives them ample opportunities to build on their language.
At every level our aim is to build on the LSRW (Listening, Speaking,
Reading and Writing) skills of the students.
The phonics programme at CGR lays the foundation for early reading ability and helps students understand the rules of the language.
Reading is an intrinsic part of the curriculum and the habit is inculcated in our students from the Pre-Primary level. A spacious and generously stocked library with books from all genres and age groups make for happy and informative reading. Every week each class visits the library to select a book of their choice which they take home.
Our educators work on building a healthy respect for the National language
or the language of the state, whichever be the case. Special care is taken to
absorb educators who are not only fluent in Hindi and Telugu but English as
well. This is especially helpful for children relocating from other countries
and states where these are not taught. Our NRI students are proof of the fact!

The approach to Math is conventional in places. At CGR, age old practices
such as the learning of tables and regular practice are given due importance
to give children an edge over others and provide them with mental dexterity.
Innovative worksheets, real life experiences make Math easily
understandable. Through structured learning and activities children are
encouraged to understand basic mathematical concepts which encompass shape,
space and position, pattern and relationships, measures and numeracy.
The year 2011-12 saw the integration of the Abacus Programme into their
Math curriculum. The abacus programme is beneficial not only in improving
their speed and accuracy of computing skill, but also improves their
concentration, comprehension, retention and recall and logical reasoning.
Science at CGR emphasizes on a hands-on and minds-on approach to learning.
Students are given opportunities to interact with the natural world, to have
direct experience with common objects, materials and living things in their
environments so that they can come up explanations about the world they live
in. The aim is to encourage them to ask "why" questions in an attempt to
seek greater understanding about objects and events seen, observed and heard
about. Science is not limited to the confines of the classroom or the lab.
Field trips and experiments add an interesting dimension to learning. Field
Trips are conducted periodically in accordance with the ongoing topic.
E-content from Teach Next heralds the beginning of 3-D learning at CGR!
Innovative 2D and 3D audio-visual animations make even difficult concepts
easy to understand and accelerate learning.
At CGR, ICT paves way for students to enhance their knowledge in
collaboration with the ongoing topics thereby adding other dimensions to their
There is a computer in every class to support the children's learning.
Classes have online access to a number of educational websites to make
