Highlights of Cycle 13

Highlights of Cycle 13

Going Further!!

Our junior scientists had come up with startling ideas in the last cycle. They were prepared to change the world with it. In this cycle, they continued their research to convert the ideas into reality. They understood the importance of following the Scientific Method and experimented using it. Enthusiasm and commitment were observed at every stage during the cycle. Many of them came up with breathtaking presentations of their ideas in the form of models and blueprints. Creativity and inquiry were showcased at its best.
Language
The students completed their Summative Assessment of Debate in this Cycle. They were seen verbalizing their thinking and modifying ideas as per need. They were observed defending their points with logical arguments and respecting the speaker when doing it.
The students were then tuned into Persuasive Writing and it’s importance in our life. They were able to make personal connections about convincing others and were observed all geared up to increase their persuasive power.
Math
The learners continued with their research on the topic ‘Students do not realize the importance of reading ‘ by following the Data Handling Cycle. They revised the steps to be followed for constructing a pie chart and realized it’s significance to represent data.  After that, they learned about mean and mode and its importance in real life. The learners presented their research work and realized how following the Data Handling Cycle made their research more structured and easy. This marked the end of the Data Handling Cycle.
The learners were then tuned into Integers. They were awestruck by the fact that they were surrounded by it and gave astonishing examples of where they have seen it in real life. Then they learned about Coordinate Geometry and were completely amazed by its real-life applications. The learners were curious all throughout the cycle and the zeal to learn could be observed.
The next cycle has more mind-boggling things in store for the learners!!
To know more,
Stay Tuned!!

Parenting in Modern Times

Hereby sharing few feedback from the last workshop we had with G 4, 5 and 6 parents:

– It was quite a valuable session. Lots of gratitude for the same. Also, lots of applauds to school team to proactively organizing such session. Genuinely obligated to all of you.
– I really enjoyed being a part of the workshop and the tips shared by the counselors will definitely help us on reflecting on our parenting skills and styles. Listening from other moms also gave me comfort that I’m not the only one pulling my hair apart 😉 Both the counselors were equally involved and patiently understood as well as catered to parent queries. I would like to hear more on father’s role in parenting. As a parent, I struggle to involve my husband actively in parenting. Thank you for the workshop! The effort is appreciated.
– Thanks dear.It was indeed a fruitful session. Got a chance to recap, re look and rethink about how I am as a parent and also on my parenting style. Having a discussion with other parent made me feel that I am not the only one and got few tips from them regarding how they are handling similar issues. Hats off to the counselors they are very talented and knowledgeable and was able to take the session very smoothly and nicely. Suggestion is that we should have more such sessions with parents of difficult kids. As I always feel “there are no difficult kids there are always difficult parents”. Such parents need this and even we too to keep us reminded of.Great efforts by the school in achieving their mission statement as they alone can’t build character with competence they seek our help for it too.Thank you for making me a part of it.
– The workshop started well with knowing the purpose and expectation of each parent . For the very little time I was there , Parents were sharing their concerns and experiences about their child and how they deal with the situations and what doesn’t work… The counselors were giving their necessary inputs ” like 2 min parenting that stuck with me.”
But the bitter fact is there is “no fixed medicines for dealing with children with same problems”. Hence as parents its us who has to gauge what works well for us.
