Highlights of Cycle 18

Highlights of Cycle 18

This cycle was phenomenal. Learners had an adventurous night out at school, explored more about the puberty unit while learning to comprehend poems and, developing a firm grip on solving integers.

Night out – After arriving on Saturday afternoon, students were teamed up for ‘Scavenger Hunt’ activity, which was followed by a short snack break. Later, the students participated in various races. After a relaxing break, students went on to enjoy the DJ time and had dinner. By nightfall, they prepared to go to bed and spent the night out in the open, bonding with their peers. At daybreak, students got ready and went out for a morning walk, accompanied by staff members.

Language – In language, we focused on two new poems – New Boy and The Bullied. The purpose of introducing these poems was to enhance learners’ comprehension skills. They were expected to identify the tone of the poem; underlying meaning and purpose; and, comprehend the figurative language used by the poet. Hyperbole (figure of speech) was introduced through worksheets and rigorous practice was given for the same.

Mathematics – This cycle, we continued with reviewing and practicing integer operations. Additionally, students were trained to construct meaning and work on solving integer word problems step by step with written statements, calculations and answer with units.

UOI – Advancing further into exploring the unit of puberty, students participated in the class discussion about physical changes they undergo during adolescence. To facilitate their understanding, HRTs showed age appropriate videos in class and assigned designated page numbers to be read from the books ‘Just for Girls’ and ‘Just for Boys’. As a follow up exercise, learners shared their queries with their teacher.

A moment to reminisce…

It’s always joyful to recall the past memories and experiences through photographs. Go through your childhood pictures and have a hearty discussion with your parents about all of what you can encounter in these pictures about yourself. You can use any ICT tool like Google Doc, Google Slides, Powtoon etc. to create a year-on-year life journey and mention the changes that you were able to observe in yourselves. If available, you may choose to go through your parents’ childhood photographs as well. I hope you have a wonderful family time through this engagement.

You have to ask 2 relevant questions to know more about yourself and your body based on the key concepts Change and Responsibility. You need to write the questions in your UOI notebook.

Kindly ensure that you get the undertaking (2 Sheets) signed by your parents and it is neatly pasted in your UOI notebooks.
