Grade 7 Interdisciplinary unit (science and athletics)

Grade 7 Interdisciplinary unit (science and athletics)

Hello parents and students,


Here the students come up with physics and athletics how goes to hand to hand. Student understand the physics law and how it is applied in athletic events. Student ran 100 meter (linear motion) and 200 meter (circular motion). How both running are different according to their tracks. Students came to know in 100 meter explosive strength, speed required and for 200 meter explosive strength, power, speed and endurance required.

Students also explored the high jump techniques like Fosbury flop, Scissors and the Western roll. They watched a video about how does the Fosbury flop method have an added advantage over the other two.They understood the concept of Centre of mass in brief and related with Newton’s laws of motion. They answered questions such as 1.” Why does an athlete take a short run before taking a jump?”, 2.”Why is it important for the anthete to take a small jump on 1 leg, before leaping forward?” , 3. “What role does weight of the athlete play?”, based on these Laws;
Thus, they identified the concept “connection” between physics and athletics. Here are the glimpses of the ongoing unit.
Thank you.

Regarding Change in Timetable.

Dear Students,

With your mock exams approaching, it is evident that you need more time for self-study. Considering this, we are changing the school timings for grade 10, applicable from 20th February (Day 5 will be followed). Timings will be 08:50 am to 02:00 pm.

The timetable has been modified to accommodate this change, wherein the subjects where the curriculum is pending have been given slots accordingly.

The teachers have also made a specific revision plan other than just doing past papers so that the difficult topics are revised. If you have any suggestions for the revision plan, you can also speak to your subject teachers regarding the same.

Students who want to stay back after 02:00 pm, to solve specific doubts with any subject teacher should take a prior appointment from the subject teacher and it has to be approved by Senior School Vice Principal.

Mock exams will be conducted on the pre-decided dates.

P.S – on 23rd Feb – IGCSE Hindi examinations are scheduled, so French students will come and attend French classes on this day. Timings 9:30 am to 11:30 am. All students will leave by 11:45 am bus route. Bus route details will be posted soon.
