Dear Students and Parents,

Glimpses of this week -:

Literature -: Wonder by R.J. Palacio

Students completed reading and comprehending  August’s narration (Part 6) and Miranda’s narration (Part 7)  using Say something, Popcorn and Reciprocal reading strategies.

To get the better insight of the chapters “Genetics 101” and “Punnet Square ” of this novel, we had an expert session conducted by our school science teachers Mr. Jay Kosambia and Ms. Anika Mehta. Using animated videos followed by brief discussion, they explained Inheritance, Genetic Traits, Genes, DNA, and Mutations.

Book club -:

Students attended the book club session in the Senior Library. Few students made a presentation in the Book circle during this  slot. Students are encouraged to select books for reading during this slot and hence inculcate good reading habit. We would appreciate timely  completion of the Book Club books.

Grade 8_Vivacity-Exuberance-_Mathematics_Highlights of the week_13 Jan 2017

Dear Parents,
Lets walk into this week to have a better understanding of the work done by our students:
1. Students continued with the unit- Surds and expanded their understanding about how to rationalize fractions having Surds in denominator.

2. To extend their understanding on the topic rationalizing fractions, they worked with fractions having two terms in denominator with their conjugate pairs and completed exercise 1.3

3.  Students also revised the types of numbers that is natural numbers, rational numbers, Irrational numbers and Real numbers. With this understanding they completed the exercise 1.4.

4. To evaluate and assess their understanding on the unit- Pythagoras theorem- They conducted one activity in which group of 3 or 4 students were made and each group had to visit 10 different areas already specified by teachers in school to calculate the length and breadth of the area and then find out the diagonal length using Pythagoras Theorem and check whether their answer is correct or not using the measuring tape given to them. For their easy calculation, They were also given calculators for their calculations.

Grade 8_Verve, Zest_Math Highlights of the week_13th January 2017

Dear Parents,

Here are this week’s highlights:

  • We started the week with an activity of Pythagoras Theorem where students suppose to measure as well calculate hypotenuse of different rectangular places in the school. They were given a list of 10 such places and in a group of four they performed this activity. Further we prepared a chart to list down the results.
  • We explained the concept of rationalization of surds and the importance of it. Based on this questions from Ex 1.2 were explained and some questions were done in the class by students.
  • The next topic in Surds was conjugate pairs, we had a discussion in the class what do we mean by this and how to solve questions based on this. Questions from Ex 1.3 were solved in the class.
  • We continued with Ex 1.4 with some extra practice from the worksheet uploaded in google classroom.
  • Students also prepared the charts on real life applications of pythagoras theorem and surds and displayed in the class.
  • Some moments captured during the activity:

Have a great Weekend and Happy Makar Sankranti!!!

Dear Parents,

Here’s what we did:

  1. In new unit a topic ‘Expressions’ was started. With some information, students were able to construct expressions using Jodo blocks. They understood the relationship between things as per the context.
  2. Students also understood terminologies like variable, constant, coefficient, term, operators, expression and equation. Real life examples of algebraic expressions were discussed in the class. We will further continue this unit in next week.
  3. Summative Assessment of ‘Let’s organize and analyse to find a solution’ unit (Statistics) was conducted.

Thanks and Regards,
