Curriculum Overview

May 11, 2020

At LWS, we are continuously developing our curriculum to meet the needs of all students through academics and social-emotional learning. Our core curriculum is based on our own esteemed National Curriculum of Nepal. In addition to that, we will be accommodating the 21st-century demand teaching/learning approach with state-of-the-art educational tools and human resources that are available at the national and international levels. We have adopted widely accepted internationally student-centered approaches of Teaching- Learning Practices based on the inquiry-based 5E model which will help the students to integrate their learning in a world-class approach. Classroom instruction and assessment go hand in hand and create opportunities for the students to co-construct criteria, goal set, self-reflect, and assess their learning.

LWS offers a modern teaching-learning approach that balances classical roots with a contemporary awareness of our responsibilities as global citizens. We stand on the following teaching methodologies:

  • Lessons are made more exciting and engaging through field trips, outdoor sessions, and workshops to help a child to achieve their full potential.
  • Students are placed into different groups based on their intrinsic potential and interest and a wide range of ECAs are offered.
  • English literature classes are taught by native-like English speakers for grades 4 to 10.
  • Unconventional Home Learning Activities are designed to foster parent-child quality time at home as well as to promote children’s effective participation in their study.
  • TFW (talk for writing), a recently developed interactive way of teaching English literature is introduced and practiced in the English language classes.
  • The EAL (English as an Additional Language) team works rigorously in grades 1, 2 and 3 to ensure a strong foundation in the English Language.
  • Each class will have a full-time teacher and teaching assistant throughout the lesson.
  • A wide range of indoor and outdoor resources are used as a teaching aid to facilitate every student’s need in each lesson.
  • Teaching materials are not necessarily directly taught from the textbooks. A variety of resource materials will be used to cover all the aspects of the lesson. Each lesson is prepared such a way that inculcates inquiry-based learning followed by rubrics for each topic.
  • Grade Teaching Practice in grades 1, 2 and 3; i.e., Core subjects are taught by a single specialised teacher.
