Highlights of the Cycle 5 – 14th July to 21st July 2017

Highlights of the Cycle 5 – 14th July to 21st July 2017

The cycle commenced with the Parent-teacher interaction meeting which was scheduled along with the goal setting for this term. The teacher discussed some noteworthy points about students with their parents in order to understand the children better.

UOI:-

Students formed questions based on their learning about Governance and then categorized them under open-ended and close ended questions. Later, they were asked to identify the corresponding key concept for each of the open-ended questions and classify them under Form, Function and Responsibility key concepts. Rest of the questions were termed as their personal inquiry questions. Once the key concept questions were made, students were asked to form lines of inquiry for each of the above mentioned key concepts. They then made connections of Governance with several organizations which they come across in daily life, for example, an office, school, a company, city, family etc. Relating the concept of Governance to something which seemed reachable to them, learners started researching about our school’s structure and function with respect to human resources. They conducted primary as well as secondary research in order to understand the school’s way of organizing and managing people.

Math:-

Students were introduced to the concept of BODMAS and its importance in solving equations having multiple mathematical operations. They practiced several worksheets on applying BODMAS on whole numbers as well as fractional numbers and decimals.

Language:-

The language cycle started with students getting to know how to pronounce names of some Greek gods, goddesses, places, mythical creatures etc. Some mythical stories were discussed with them in the class so as to make the learners understand the evolution of expressions like Herculean efforts, Icarian, To play a Cupid, Labyrinth etc and their role in portraying an idea or feeling. The chapter ‘The fall of Icarus’ from the book ‘Empowering English’ was read in the classroom which was followed by the discussion of post-reading questions and different language tasks listed at the end of the chapter.

Life class for Grade 5- A Milestone Towards Socio-Emotional Development

Life class for Grade 5- A Milestone Towards Socio-Emotional Development


We at FOUNTAINHEAD SCHOOL truly believe and propagate the idea that IQ and EQ go hand in hand. In alignment with the IB mission statement, we believe that only by nurturing students’ socio-emotional development can we attain their holistic development.

As per the education board, there is a fixed curriculum to cater to the students’ socio-emotional needs. The activities are age appropriate and contextual. The purpose of this curriculum is to sensitize the children of that particular age group to topics like bullying, gender stereotype and so on. We cannot deny that in this rapidly changing world, our children do get exposed to all of this. Up till now, we were delivering this curriculum either in integration with our units or in tiny homeroom sessions. However, as educators, we felt that instead of these intermittent sessions, an entire day immersed in these topics would make a greater impact.

With this aim in mind, Grade 5 has initiated Life Classes for its students. Our purpose is not only to sensitize but also to empower our children to accept, handle and express their emotions in an acceptable manner. The session will give our students an exposure to these skills in an interactive manner.

The first session of Life class is on 1st August, 2017(a regular working day), and attendance is compulsory for all students.
