Ã‚Â Furthermore, we as a class, read a letter which was drafted by a 10-year-old child to his parents persuading them about choosing his own bedtime. The format of a persuasive letter and the sentence starters to persuade effectively was discussed with them.
Math : Learners derived the understanding of data handling terminologies like population, sample size, target audience and sample. They were given a question : School isÃ‚Â contemplating to introduce an elective course on coding for middle years students. How should we go about it. They decided to take up the survey. Further they identified they will ask teachers and students – this became their population. They further narrowed to grade 7 students and teachers – this became their target audience and they then decided to approach few selective students from each class – this is their sample. They laterÃ‚Â saw the video :Ã‚Â https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gs-gLeYuDZwÃ‚Â and noted the definition.
They were given a letter sample and identify the main point, importance of persuading, reasons and supporting points to the reason and final point. They then read the format for persuasive writing. Ã‚Â (Both the papers were stapled in their notebook)
Unpacking of central idea was done through a class discussion.

Students got into small groups and each of them were given either the role of parent or a child to play. The topic for today’s discussion was ‘Overnight stay at friend’s house’. They had to think from each other’s perspective about the anticipated arguement the other team may put up and had to think of a win-win solution for the same.
Concept of measures of central tendency was introduced to them through which they understood how to represent a huge set of data values by just a single number. It could be either mean, median or mode, depending on the situation.
Solve the following questions in your math notebook:-
In a spellings test, some children in a class scored 13,16,12,20,19,13 and 11 out of a total of 20. Find the mean, median and mode of the data set.
