Highlights & Homework for Grade 7 Language & Literature

Highlights & Homework for Grade 7 Language & Literature

Thought for the day: “A good exercise for the heart is bending down and helping someone to get up.”

This week students completed reading the short story, ‘How I Taught My Grandmother to Read’ by Sudha  Murthy. They also attempted 2 worksheets based on the story which involved vocabulary and textual questions. Students also enhanced their critical thinking skills by solving reading comprehension passages from readtheory.org in the class. They had their book club session this week where they decided which book they would present first. They also attempted a Formative Assessment of Unit 1.
Home Work:
Describe “A day in the life of a grandparent” using the vocabulary that you have learned in 250-300 words. You can draw or include a picture with your Grandparent. Alternatively, you can also interview a friend’s grandparent and write about a day in their life.
Warm Regards,
Language Team

Service Program 2017-18

Service Program 2017-18

Dear Parents,

This year we are emerging with the Service Program 2017-18 for the students of Grade 7-9 & 11. We shall once again have underprivileged children from all over the city (mainly from the areas near the school) to come together and learn something new, which will be facilitated by our FS students.

 

Objective & details:

We have introduced service component for all Senior School students as it is a required component of the IB (MY & DP) which aims to develop a caring young, internationally minded person for a better tomorrow.

Students will be involved in many activities which will include both Community and Environment related services.

We at Fountainhead believe not just fulfilling the needs of a curriculum or a syllabus of a subject, but we also believe in meeting ends with the needs of a humane soul, the ethics and morals that make us a better person, and eventually nurture leader’s through primary greatness, which we always speak of !

This programme will not only make the Senior School students accustomed to the subject of CAS, but it also lets them put aside their shortcomings and make themselves better social beings in every way possible.

 

What changes have we made this year?

Taking well into consideration the feedback received from all aspects, we have slightly improvised the module:

From this year onward, we will be having service session in the FS premises itself, wherein our students along with the students from NGO will come to the school on Sat-Sun and have sessions here. Transport to both the students of FS and the NGOs will be provided by the school.

 

Reasons and benefits of this change:

  1. Safety of all the students (FS and NGO) will be assured as it will be held strictly within the school premises and they all will be in constant supervision of school (Teachers/ Admin) & security staff.
  2. All resources/ facilities will be available in the school itself.
  3. Syllabus/ plan will be provided by the FS academic teams.
  4. Transport to all students will be provided by the school.
  5. Students, both from FS and the NGOs will get to have a new experience every weekend and take back some learning, both on basis of soft skills and hard skills.
