Students are gearing up for their Final IB Internal assessment component – Individual Oral Commentary (IOC). They have been given excerpts and are working on Mock commentaries in class, and some are also sending teachers their recorded commentaries from home. These are marked and sent across to students to inform them about what they need to improve and what they are doing well.
In addition, HL students are also reading and discussing Chapter 8 of ‘Animal Farm’ from the point of view of an IOC.

Read and stick the conclusion article given today.
Practice for presentation based on the feedback provided today in the class.
In this week, we started with the new sub-unit, ‘Structure of DNA.’ The structure along with the four bases of DNA was discussed. Students drew the structure in their notebook. After that the difference between DNA and RNA was discussed. Then, the semiconservative nature of DNA was emphasised. In order, to amplify DNA, PCR was discussed. Lastly, the activity where students made the DNA using origami was performed.

Grade 8_Mathematics_Highlights of the week_Exuberance,Vivacity_20/01/2017
Lets walk through theÃ‚Â week to understand the work done by students and units they have covered in thisÃ‚Â week :-
Students have completed the unit Surds by understanding how to rationalize the denominator having Sudrs. They have also understood few concepts of opening the brackets having Surds.
Unit test paper andÃ‚Â weekend homework discussions were done in the class along with the doubt sessions. To end up the unit, we have taken one surprise test to check their understanding on the unit Surds and Pythagoras theorem. They evaluated their understanding and also realized their mistakes and corrected them.
we started new Unit- StatisticsÃ‚Â where studentsÃ‚Â were introduced to the meaning of statistics, data and frequency. They also understood different types of data and completed one exerciseÃ‚Â (11.1) identifying the type of data- Discrete or continuous data.
To understand the importance of Ã‚Â studying statistics, Students found out the real life applications of statistics and wrote it on a chart paper.
Ã‚Â Moving further on the unit Students understood ho to draw frequency histogram and group the discrete data using range. They have completed exercise 11.2 and started 11.3 based on grouped discrete data.
Thanks & Regards,
