Learners were tuned in for the new unit. They were asked prompting questions and by giving answers to these questions they came with keywords which included energy, stamina, power, etc. This was followed by an activity wherein learners were given a chart paper, on which there was a graphic organiser and they were supposed to write the keyword energy in the centre and around that write whatever comes to their mind related to the keyword energy.
Going further on measurement, learners did an activity where they were supposed to fly a paper dish like a Frisbee and then estimate the approximate value of distance. This was followed by estimating the real value of distance with the help of a measure tape.

Dear parents and students,
We are back to school and with full enthusiasm started out our first day with the revision of our school and class mission statements. We also re visited our essential agreements and mutually decided to adhere to them more religiously.
We went over the diwali homework for both math and language. Students were asked to proof read each other’s language papers and read out loud in the class after making the corrections. Through this way of reading, correcting, and listening, students were more clearly able to identify the usual grammatical mistakes.
A brief up on the Dholavira trip was also done in class and expectations of the trips were cleared. A parent consent form was handed out to the students and it needs to be turned in by the 30th of November.

UOI:- Tuning in of the new unit “Energy” was done by asking students various questions and discussing the same. Through this they came across the word “energy” as well as other connecting words. Later, the students were grouped and were asked to write down whatever comes to their mind when they think of the word “energy”.
Math:- Continuing with the tuning in activity of measurement, students were made to play a game on estimating the distance. Each of them threw a paper dish and then initially was asked to estimate the distance. After their estimation, the distance was actually checked with a measuring tape. The difference of their estimation and the actual distance was tracked. Through this they understood the importance of standard units of measurement.
ICT:- Students played various interactive games on math and language to enhance theirÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â learning.
