Grade 10_India Studies_Highlights of the week.

This week in Grade 10 India Studies class, we continued with the last Case Study of the Syllabus.

How might India develop its programme to improve human development? Links for the same have been shared on Google Classroom and a video based on “Paani Foundation” too was shown.

In next cycle too, the same case study will continue.

Educational Trip – PYP Exhibition Unit

Dear Parent,

We are soon going to enter the most important phase of the PYP, the culmination of the programme – The PYP Exhibition (PYPX). PYPX represents a significant event in the life of a PYP school and student, synthesizing the essential elements of the PYP and sharing them with the whole school community. The students are required to engage in a collaborative, transdisciplinary inquiry process that involves them in identifying, researching and finding solutions to real life issues related to the topic they have chosen.

During this process, it is also important for us to provide opportunities, in form of field trips, for students to get out of classroom and experience something new. Based on the requirements for the inquiry process, we have finalised an educational trip to Greater Rann of Kutch (GRK) / Little Rann of Kutch (LRK) from 16th March – 19th March 2017. The students will either go to GRK or LRK. The learning outcome of both the places are the same and students understanding would be similar.

The trip to GRK/LRK will:

  • Be a rich learning environment as students will be able to explore and inquire from actual hands-on experiences, rather than by simply reading or hearing about it. Involving in real world experience will make the inquiry process more meaningful and memorable resulting in a conceptual understanding of the topic.
  • Bring in a lot of expert insight – Opportunities to come out into the community to interact with experts to get first-hand information and experience.
  • Opportunities to take meaningful action – The things students observe and experience on these trips increase their motivation for learning and in turn broadens their horizon which leads to an action that arises from a genuine concern and commitment towards themselves as well as the society.
  • Provide opportunities to demonstrate and apply skills acquired during the PYP journey.

Hence, it is highly recommended for each and every student to participate in this educational trip, which will provide them a rich learning experience. These experiences will help them finalise a research topic that really matters to them to make the PYPX process a more meaningful and memorable one.

Please fill this consent form before 26th Jan 2017. The cost of the trip will be approx Rs. 10,500/- . The amount will be adjusted in imprest deposit as per actual cost accrued. Please send the cheque in favour of ‘Fountainhead Education trust’, latest by 30th January 2017.   

Note:

A fine of Rs 500 would be charged against any cancellation.

  • A read aloud of the book “The Giving Tree” was done. Learners were taken to KG Farm where they came to know about the trees, plants , grass and different parts of the plants.
  • Learners made their favorite food using clay and then through a discussion they gained an understanding that food items are acquired from plants and that is why trees are important to us.

Important note-

1.Please revise the taught curriculum regularly.
