Application of our learning..!

Application of our learning..!

As a part of our ongoing unit of inquiry , we want our learners to understand events involve planning , decision making and organization. So to practically experience this, we gave an opportunity to the learners to plan and organise an event in the school.

Yesterday, Dazzlers celebrated a ‘birthday party’ which was fully planned and organized by them , of-course under the guidance of the teacher. The learners did the whole planning and things like taking permission, deciding the food menu, going to the store room to get the decoration materials, return gifts, inviting guests, making invitation cards, decorating the classroom, games to be played , each and every thing was done by them. After the party, we also reviewed the whole thing as what things were good and what things could have been better.

This opportunity also helped to see different systems in our school . They worked in groups so attitudes like co-operation and teamwork was clearly seen and some of them really demonstrated good leadership skills. Each and every child contributed to this event and we all enjoyed this party a-lot!

We hope learners take back their understanding and involved while organizing any event at home too!! Huge thanks to parents for contributing by sending  delicious food!!

Glimpses of this event:
