Dear parents,

A hearty welcome to the  academic  year 2015-16 which will be full of excitement , fun, play and learning. The first week of school was full of mixed emotions. Kids were happy to be with new friends  and somewhere scared about the change they are facing. We tried our best to make the kids comfortable to the new environment. They enjoyed the ice-breaking activity, passing the ball where they had to throw the ball at someone and they had to introduce themselves. They also enjoyed the free play and visual art activities,  colouring, readalouds and singing rhymes/songs. Here are some glimpses of the same.

Thank you,

Regards,

Tasnim Y Batliwala

Grade 12 Math HL – Highlights of the week (13/06/2015)

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the new academic session 2015-2016 !!

Students had a wonderful first learning cycle where first two days they were involved in  reviewing the school policies, routines and procedures, essential agreement for the class, making of class mission statement along with its logo, etc.

In regular Math class, we started with the new unit ALGEBRA. Students were given summer vacation homework based on the concepts learnt in grade 10 (Sequences). All of them submitted their homework on the given deadline.

After reviewing the important points of arithmetic and geometric sequences, they were introduced to the concept of sigma notations, its properties and arithmetic series. We also derived the formula of arithmetic series and solved the problems based on it. IB style questions having varied difficulty levels were given to students in class to solve to give them rigorous practice.

Homework based on this concept has been given to students on Google classroom.

Regards,

Krishna Shethji

Grade 7- All Sections – Glimpses of the first week

Grade 7- All Sections – Glimpses of the first week

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the academic year 2015 – 16.
It was a joyous experience to start the session with the ice breaking activities which helped us to know each other. We set expectations for each other were we came to a common point so as to make our learning a rich experience.

List of activities done across the section in this week -:

1 We started with tuning in activity where students were given different adjectives which described different character traits of human beings and they were asked to segregate positive and negative traits. Students took active participation in the activity and they themselves found the meaning of the different traits and identified if they were positive or negative in nature.

2 Students were told to gather information about a character by reading a book. They were instructed to find out adjectives and language used to describe physical and character traits by the author. Students were taken to the library, where they selected books of their own choice and gathered information of the character traits and adjectives used by the author. Later they discussed the gathered information and their own reflection why they think the character is positive or negative, this was followed with the word web activity so as to identify the characteristic of the given animals.

Regards,

Jatin Makwana, Hasina Saifee, Eva Donald and Nikita Jhaveri
