## Highlights of Cycle 5

Dear Parent,

Day: July 24, 2018

Dear Parent,

Cycle 5 began with the government initiative of the Measles and Rubella campaign that was held in the school. This campaign once again demonstrated our commitment towards improving health and well being of our students by protecting them against vaccine-preventable diseases.

As an audience, the students of Grade 5 witnessed the creative presentations of our students while they performed for the assembly. They used different mediums of presentation to exhibit the knowledge that they have gained so far.

Formative Assessments were conducted to assess student learning needs as well as their academic progress. A detailed discussion of the assessment was conducted and the students were given constructive feedback for improvement.

The plan for Language Development consisted of a revision of the grammar that the students have previously learned. This was done with an aim to build on the linguistic skills of the students that they have learned during the previous grades.

As we near the end of the Unit, students have begun attempting the Summative Assessment which will help us evaluate their learning, skill acquisition as well as academic achievement.

Looking forward to book reviews and much more in the forthcoming cycle!!!

Regards,

Grade 6 team

- What is the total amount of grocery she bought? What was the first step you took to solve this question? Why did you do so?
- She had Rs.5000 with her. Her total bill of the bought items added up to Rs.2546.84. What is the amount returned to her by the shopkeeper?

What is the weight of carrots and fruits that she will have to buy so as to feed everyone (all 7 people)? Which mathematical operation(s) will you choose to determine the answer?
