Highlight and Homework

Dear parents,

[Highlight Of The Week]

Chapter 9 of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was completed using the strategy (Asking questions, make a comment, Make a prediction and making connections)

Students were also introduced to the concept of Perimeter of a square and rectangle. (Priyanshi Bhavsar took an Action by applying her understanding of Perimeter and came up with the equation of perimeter of a triangle on her own)

Students also revised Infographs and primary and secondary data sources. They appeared for a Formative Assessment of the same.

Students were introduced to their new Unit – Energy. In addition, they got equipped with getepic.com for reading and research purposes.

Language and ICT integration was taken up through creating Google Slides of their descriptive writing using Labour day images.




Students are expected to make corrections to their descriptive passage/sentence by making a new PPT or revising their work in their language writing notebook.

Kindly support your child by checking their Re-do work and giving appropriate feedback.

The PPT they had created for descriptive writing has been shared with you. (Do not forget to acknowledge their work through a sign/comment on their work and give written feedback on the slide/notebook)
