Grade – 4 Gujarati Homework (Ab – initio level) Cycle – 8 (Date : 14/08/2018)
Math: Learners were introduced to the conversion of metric units. They were informed about the base 10 system of measurement including kilo-, hecto-, deca-, deci-, centi-, and milli-, with a base unit of measurements, such as metre, litre, or gram. Later, they practised conversion of the unit through sums and word problems. One of the examples used was ‘If a milkman delivers 15 l of milk daily, how many millilitres of milk does he deliver daily?’
1 l = 1,000 ml
15 x 1 l = 15 x 1,000 ml
So, 15 l = 15,000 ml
UOI: Learners reflected about yesterday’s engagement and further derived ‘Children worldwide face challenges, risks and opportunities.’ They also stated they need to be resilient to face any situation and further identified learner profile – courageous and caring and attitude – tolerance and empathy, that they would like to develop in the unit.
UOI: Discuss with your parents, challenges and risks faced by children. Take notes on a piece of paper provided to you.

Safety and well being of students is of utmost importance to us at Fountainhead. To this end, we had undertaken a safety project last year to improve safety and well being measures at school.
The next step that we have in line is to to invite parent volunteers for an audit of safety practices at school.
What is a safety audit?
A safety audit is to monitor and analyze an institution’s operations in order to determine how well it conforms to a set of specific criteria.
In this case, the parent volunteers of the safety audit team will assess the school’s safety measures based on Aarambh India’s checklist
Categories/Departments for audit:
How will the process work?
Once we receive responses from the parents, a short meeting will be arranged to discuss the details. The Safety Audit committee members, i.e. parents will be divided into groups as per the preferences chosen by them. Each group will be conducting the audit for a specific department, will be completing the audit and bringing it to conclusion by writing comments for the chosen department.
Interested parents need to click on the following link and fill the form latest by 16th August, 2018.
The audit along with the parent orientation will be done in the first week of September. (Date will be informed to you later). The parents might choose to do the audit on the same day or some other day in the same week. Important point to note is that parents should be willing to spend a day in school for the audit.
Let’s join hands and work towards ensuring safety of students at Fountainhead!
