Casio & Guitar
In this age where there are no barriers and we are training our children to be global, we at Canterbury have decided to open up the world of Western Classical music to them. The children are learning to play Western Classical music on the keyboard and the Guitar. Music appreciation is one of the key features of this class.
The tabla enjoys the status of being the most popular percussion instrument of India. It is an indispensable part of classical recitals (both vocal and instrumental), folk song recitals, and music played at weddings and religious ceremonies. Rhythm is the keynote here. To achieve a perfect rhythmic balance, the first emphasis is on flexibility of the fingers, which will create this harmony.
Students are taught the bols in a variety of taals (ektaal, teentaal, jhaanptaal, rupak, dadra and kaharva).
They are also introduced to a variety of percussion instruments- mandirs, khanjira, resho, dugi, dafli and dholak to name a few.
Indian Classical dance has three main components- nritta, nritya, and natya. Nritta is the footwork and body movements, natya involves expression and acting. The combination of nritta and natya produces nritya, the complete classical dance presentation.
No art can be nurtured in isolation. Dance has music as integral part. Children learning dance will also develop musical sense. . Dance is a complete experience of understanding our cultural heritage. basic foot steps, hand movements, body postures, rhythmic exercises are being taught to develop stamina and ease .being focused to develop understanding towards appreciation of the dance form. Children are appreciating classical dances and show great enthusiasm to learn and perform. Children are encouraged to perform various regional folk dances to emphasize the culture of India.
The school provides full exposure to SUPW wherein the students participate in Some Useful Project Works, Theatre, Debates, Public Speaking, Creative Writing, Quiz Sessions, Paper Reading etc. are regular skill honing activities. SUPW encourages children to take up various learning -based activities that are executed under the guidance of qualified teachers
Sports n Games
Development of confidence and self-esteem
A child is intrinsically born to be physically active. This motivation can be used as medium to make them feel good about themselves. What we do is make them realize that they can achieve certain goals by using their bodies, Sports and minds.
This can be achieved by teaching them a variety of gross motor skills, which are age appropriate and provide a high level of success.
Physical competence is the ability to play any game with a high level of satisfaction. A person is said to be physically competent if his or her gross motor skills are fully developed. Sportsmen are usually born with these skills. But research has shown that these skills can be systematically developed from a young age.
Physical Fitness .
As the children move to the senior school the number one priority is being physically fit. Children are tested for their strength, speed, endurance and flexibility in a year. They are motivated to better their own score thus competing with themselves. A child is considered successful if he or she is able to better his or her own score.
Children are not little adults, so the games are modified to suit their needs. Playing space, equipment and rules are modified to encourage participation and skill development.
