PhenoBL is a multidisciplinary, constructivist form of learning or pedagogy where students study a topic or concept through a holistic approach instead of subject-based approach. Here, the real-world phenomena provides the starting point for learning. The phenomena are studied as complete entities in their real context, and the information & skills related to them are studied by crossing the boundaries between subjects.
Assessment is one of the rapidly changing aspects of education. Its philosophy, approaches, methods and tools have recently witnessed substantial changes.
At The Hillside Prep, learning will be assessed through performance: What children can do with their learning. Assessment will be a ‘continuous process’ rather than ‘an event’. Parents will be kept updated and provided regular feedback on their child’s performance.
At the Pre-Primary and Primary level, the criteria for assessment will be based on Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Cambridge (CIE) benchmarks.
At The Hillside Prep, our focus will be on providing opportunities to our students to apply 21st century skills across content areas.
Our school will follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) & the Cambridge Curriculum (CIE) at the Pre-Primary and Primary level. We will be implementing the Phenomenon Based Learning (PhenoBL) in our teaching-learning methodology.
Our educational programs will measure up to accentuate a profound understanding and application in multi-disciplinary tasks. Our methodology and delivery of content will ensure that we create steadfast and strong minds that are open to knowledge gaining
