Parent Teacher Interaction (PTI) – 24th August to 31st August

Parent Teacher Interaction (PTI) – 24th August to 31st August

Dear Parents,

It’s time to meet again and take a step further in understanding your child’s needs towards achieving holistic development. We, as teachers strive to establish partnerships with parents to support student learning as well as their development as a child.

As informed earlier, this year onward instead of three reporting terms we will have two (Parent Teacher conference and Student Led conference) which will be held in November and April respectively. In the PYP, we have come up with a new initiative to conduct PTI (Parent Teacher Interaction) which is starting from 24th August to 31st August. Each parent will get 15 mins individually with the teacher to discuss about the child. The parent can also meet the ILT ( Hindi/Gujarati teachers) but the PE & the Arts team will not be available.If you want to discuss anything related to PE and Arts you need to take an appointment on some other day to meet the respective teacher.

The main purpose of the PTI meeting will be to understand and support the child from the teacher’s perspective as well as the parent’s. This meeting will also help the parents to understand and reinforce school’s philosophy. The teacher will be discussing about the child’s behavior, participation, work habits, progress, areas of improvement as well as will update you on goals set in July. As a parent you may think and note down all possible points that you would like to discuss with the teacher.

The child is not supposed to attend this meeting. In case, if you do not have any option but to bring your child along then he/she will not be allowed to attend the meeting. The student will have to wait in the corridor or be in the library.

Find below the schedule of PTI meetings with different grades.
24th August: Grade 4
25th August: Grade 5
26th August: Grade 6
27th August: Early years
29th August: Grade 3
30th August: Grade 2
31st August: Grade 1

It is compulsory for both the parents to attend the PTI meeting as strong communication is fundamental to our partnership and also to building a sense of community between home and school. The homeroom teachers will soon be opening the slots for you, kindly book your convenient slot.

If you have any query, please send a message through the daily diary communication to the HRM teacher.

Regards

Grade 5 Gujarati (Ab initio level) Homework

(Homework)ગૃહકાર્ય:  

 

નીચે આપેલ  વાર્તા વાંચો. વર્ગમાં શિક્ષિકા  વિદ્યાર્થીઓ સાથે  વાર્તાની  ચર્ચા કરશે.

(नीचे दी गई कहानी पढ़ो  | कक्षा में शिक्षिका विद्यार्थियों के साथ  कहानी  के  बारे में चर्चा करेंगी  |)

વાર્તા – અકબર બીરબલની વાર્તા – ઉંટની ગરદન વાંકી કેમ ?

એક દિવસ અકબરે દરબારમાં ખુશ થઈને બિરબલને કંઈક પુરસ્કાર આપવાની ઘોષણા કરી. પરંતુ  ઘણાં દિવસો પસાર થઈ ગયાં બાદ પણ બિરબલને ધનની રકમ (પુરસ્કાર) ન મળી. બિરબલ ખૂબ જ મુંઝવણમાં હતો કે બાદશાહને આ વાત કેવી રીતે યાદ અપાવવી?

એક દિવસ મહારાજા અકબર યમુના નદીના કિનારે સાંજે ફરી રહ્યાં હતાં. બિરબલ પણ તેમની સાથે હતાં. અકબરે ત્યાં એક ઊંટને ફરતું જોયું. અકબરે બિરબલને પુછ્યું, ઊંટની ગરદન વળેલી કેમ હોય છે?

બિરબલે વિચાર્યું મહારાજને તેમનો વાયદો યાદ અપાવવાનો આ યોગ્ય સમય છે. બીરબલે કહ્યું, મહારાજ આ ઊંટ કોઈની સાથે વાયદો કરીને ભૂલી ગયું છે, જેના લીધે ઊંટની ગરદન વળી ગઈ છે. મહારાજ, કહેવાય છે કે જે કોઈ પણ વાયદો કરીને ભુલી જાય છે ભગવાન તેની ગરદન આ ઊંટની જેમ વાળી દે છે.

ત્યારે અકબરને યાદ આવે છે કે, તેમણે પણ બિરબલને એક વાયદો કર્યો હતો અને ભૂલી ગયાં છે. તેમણે બિરબલને ઝડપથી મહેલમાં ચાલવા માટે કહ્યું. અને મહેલમાં પહોચતાંની સાથે જ તેમણે બિરબલને તેની પુરસ્કારની રકમ સોંપી દીધી. અકબરે બીરબલને  કહ્યું કે, બિરબલ તે હોશિયારીથી તારું પુરસ્કાર મેળવી લીધું.

LEAP into country builders..!!!

LEAP into country builders..!!!

The session was an integration with their current unit under the TDT – How we organise ourselves. The class started with a question – What would you do if you come across a piece of land which is not owned by anyone? This led to the introduction of the book – How to build your own country written by Valerie Wyatt. Students understood the process of building a country of their own and the steps of the same.

The students were informed that the tasks will lead to a “MELA” in which they will be exhibiting about their creation to the audience.

Today, the students were given a task to give a name to their micronation (imaginary country) while working in groups.

The young, creative minds could actually think of very different and unique names for their so-called country. In order to think of a name for their micronation, they were asked to research for the history of any country’s name. They also had to find out the reason for the name they give to their micronation on an individual basis.

Homework

As an individual task, create an emblem for your micronation considering the name of it. Note: If you are creating an emblem online, it is your responsibility to get a print of the same. Date of submission: Tuesday (16th August, 2016)
