Grade 6 – Highlights

Grade 6 – Highlights

We welcomed students wholeheartedly after the rejuvenating Diwali break. Ample events were lined up for them to be up on their toes once again. The collection and discussion of Diwali Homework gave the learners an opportunity to brush up their concepts and critical thinking skills.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge”- Einstein.

Eurythmy performance witnessed by them served as a vital medium to help them understand the world around them in new ways and relate better to different situations, backgrounds and cultures. This experience led them to appreciate international mindedness. The excitement about spending one night at school was coupled with the demonstration of independence and open-mindedness towards experiencing situations outside their comfort zone.

Math – In order to acclimatise the learners back to the teaching-learning process, after their break, ‘Learning Centers’ were organised grade-wide wherein each section took up a concept learnt in Term 1 and the learners were assisted by the teachers in gaining deeper conceptual understanding. The concept of addition and subtraction of ‘Integers’ was reinforced and the students were introduced to multiplication and division of Integers. Under Shape and Space, the learners gained a deeper understanding of ‘Perimeter and Area’ of Square and Rectangle.

Language – Our young explorers were tuned in to the concept of ‘Poetry’ through various learning engagements. They were able to identify the different types of poem and elements of poetry. Exposure to a variety of poems facilitated the students’ learning as it helped them in understanding and identifying the literary devices used by the poet. One of the literary devices’ which they explored in detail was figures of speech.

UOI – The unit ‘Puberty’ under the transdisciplinary theme ‘Who We Are’ took off with an interactive parent orientation session by an expert. The students expressed their understanding through journal reflections and exit tickets. The guest speaker session gave a wider scope to cater to the ‘curious to know’ aspect of the unit. The learners freely raised their questions and received responses from experts in the field. They were able to dig deeper into the physical changes experienced by them at this age. Graphic organisers like ‘Let’s Face It’ and ‘Fill Your Bucket’ along with appropriate article reading and videos allowed them to get attuned to the emotional changes like self-esteem, peer pressure and mood swings.

This was all for now. Looking forward to an exhilarating fun-filled cycle ahead!
