NCERT launches ‘Bridge Month Programme’ for Class 6 until new textbooks are launched

    NCERT rules for the one-month course define curriculum, assessment for Class 6; vocational, art, physical education and well-being classes mandatory


    With the new National Curriculum Framework (NCF) being introduced for Class 6, the National Council for Educational Training and Research (NCERT) has now made it mandatory for schools to allot classes for vocational education, art education, and physical education and well-being. While the textbooks are yet to be launched, the NCERT has issued a Bridge Month Programme (BMP) for Class 6 defining the teaching pedagogy, curriculum and assessment.

    By the end of the month, NCERT books for Classes 3 and 6 will be introduced, the council said. “Subsequently, in the years 2025-2026 and 2026-2027, new syllabi and textbooks for the remaining grades will be introduced,” said the NCERT guidelines.

    The NCERT states, “Student’s transition from Grade 2 to 3 and from Grade 5 to Grade 6 must be smooth. The prerequisite for learning in the new curriculum is to be fulfilled, otherwise, students will suffer from a load of non-comprehension.”

    On why it is being called the bridge month, the NCERT said, “The purpose would be to develop an interactive and playful classroom to set the atmosphere and prepare both teachers and students for the new syllabus and new approach to learning. Subjects are to be seen as interconnected.

    “It is necessary that they get exposure to learning in a manner that they can enjoy the process of learning, they learn while playing, they learn by talking to their peers, and they learn by observing the things around them for at least one month — which may be called a Bridge Month. This month, all the subjects are to be taught in a fun-based manner”.

    NCERT Class 6 curriculum

    As per the National Curriculum Framework for School Education 2023 (NCF-SE 2023), the middle stage expands to include science – the study of the physical and natural world, Social Science – the study of the human world, and students also get exposure to vocational education.

    Now Class 6 students will study Hindi, English, Sanskrit, Urdu, Social Science, Science, Mathematics, Vocational Education, Art Education and Physical Education & Well Being. The BMP has also been released for these subjects.

    For Class 6, a new time allocation and timetable will be implemented. Now art education, physical education will have 100 hours in each academic year and vocational education will have 110 hours.


    Sudha Acharya, principal of ITL Public School, Dwarka, said, “This BMP is some sort of stop gap arrangement till the new NCERT textbooks are provided. We were already having these classes but from now on it will be compulsory for all schools.”
