In general, vocabulary development through extensive reading with comprehension and interest, and writing activities at a higher level are the main goals of teaching and learning at this stage.

Objectives

The general objectives at this stage are:

  • To negotiate personal learning goals, evaluate one’s own progress and edit, revise or review one’s own work
  • To understand, enjoy and appreciate a wide range of texts representing different cultures and ways of living
  • To be able to articulate individual responses effectively
  • To use language and vocabulary appropriately in different contexts and social encounters
  • To be able to organise and structure one’s thoughts through speech and writing
  • To develop production skills (fluency and accuracy in both speaking and writing)
  • To exercise discretion while using a dictionary
  • To understand and enjoy jokes, skits, children’s films, anecdotes and riddles

At the end of this stage learners will be able to:

  • Understand the central theme of the text (prescribed and non-prescribed)
  • Use critical thinking to read between the lines and go beyond the text
  • Narrate simple experiences, describe objects and people, and report events to one’s peers
  • Speak accurately with appropriate pauses and clear stress on words and sentences to be intelligible in familiar social contexts
  • Write simple messages, invitations, short paragraphs, letters (formal and informal) applications, simple narrative and descriptive pieces etc.
  • Use one’s proficiency in English to explore and study other areas of knowledge through print and non-print media
  • Undertake small projects on a regular basis

Language Items

At the upper primary level, knowledge of grammar remains a process of discovery, combined with a conscious effort to explicitly understand and name grammatical items. In addition to consolidating items learnt earlier, the following will be introduced and recycled through the upper primary stage:

  • Determiners and Passivization
  • Linking Words and Adjectives (Comparative and Superlative Forms)
  • Adverbs (Place and Types) and Modal Auxiliaries
  • Tense Forms and Word Order in Sentence Types
  • Clauses and Reported Speech

Methods and Techniques

The selection of actual classroom procedures is left to the discretion of the teacher. The following are nonetheless recommended:

  • Role Play
  • Dramatization
  • Reading Aloud
  • Recitation of Rhymes, Poems and Making Observations on a Given Topic or Theme
  • Telling and Retelling Stories, Anecdotes, and Jokes
  • Discussion and Debate
  • Simple Projects
  • Interpreting Pictures, Sketches and Cartoons
  • Activities, Tasks, and Language Games
  • Pair Work, Group Work and Short Assignments; both Individual and Group
  • Exploring the Electronic Media

Competitive Examinations for Class 7 Stroke 396

The following is the list of competitive exams for Class 7:

  • NSTSE: The National Level Science Talent Search Exam is organised by the Unified Council for students from classes 2 to 12. It is one of the most popular scholarship examinations conducted in India.
  • Olympiads: There are several Olympiads organised by the Science Olympiad Foundation (SOF) such as IMO, NCO, NSO and ISO. They are held annually and are highly competitive.
  • NIMO: The EduHeal Foundation conducts the National Interactive Maths Olympiad (NIMO) which promises to make Math more fun. It aims to do this by introducing interactive activities like Olympiads, workshops and seminars.
  • NBTO: The National Biotechnology Olympiad is creating awareness about Biotechnology and bringing in an element of challenge and competition among students. It is also inspiring the younger generation to enhance their knowledge about issues related to Biotechnology, and test their aptitude for future careers in the field.
  • GeoGenius: Established by leading academicians, GeoGenius aims to popularize the understanding of Geography among school children. It also educates them about the planet and inculcates a deep love and respect towards the environment, which plays a major role in their progress.
  • ASSET: Assessment of Scholastic Skills through Educational Testing is a scientifically designed, skill-based assessment test. Rather than testing through multiple-choice questioning, it focuses on measuring how well school students master fundamental concepts. The test also provides information on the strengths and weaknesses of both individual students and entire classes.

Preparation Tips for Class 7

Hard work is key to cracking exams and Olympiads. However, all subjects require some specific tips, which are mentioned below:

  • English: Focus on grammar and writing, as these are sections in which students tend to lose the maximum number of marks. Practice writing sections of previous papers, along with grammar questions like editing and omission of paragraphs. The latter require intensive practice, and demand that the students be thorough.
  • Mathematics: Initially, stick to concept building. Be thorough with NCERT textbooks before moving on to R.S. Aggarwal books for the Olympiads. NCERT contains many conceptual questions and will help you build a strong foundation.
  • Science: These are your formative years and that is why you should pay attention to chapters in Physics and Chemistry. Since Biology is mostly theoretical at this stage, it doesn’t require a lot of practice. Physics and Chemistry, however, demand intensive study, and you should make sure that you understand all the concepts well before solving numericals, if any.
  • Social Science: Don't simply mug up the facts. The concept matter will be a lot clearer to you once you understand – for instance – how the government works, or what happened during the Indian independence period. Understanding the subject will give you less to swallow, helping you retain and recall more during the exam. Plus, you will be able to relate it to current events, and pinpoint historical trends from a panoramic standpoint.
  • Hindi: This subject demands intensive practice, for you to score well. Collect several sample papers and practise them till you’re thorough.
