GRADE 6 – HIGHLIGHTS

GRADE 6 – HIGHLIGHTS

Students of grade 6 were introduced to a new unit titled “Migration” under the TDT, Where we are in place and time. The unit was designed to help students understand, explore and inquire about:
• The reasons why people migrate.
• Migration throughout history.
• Effects of migration on communities, cultures and individuals.

The students were tuned in to the unit on migration with the help of the book “I am Australian too” by Mem Fox. Along with the usual means of books, internet and articles on migration, immigration, refugees; the learners also had the opportunity to interact with various guest speakers who shared their personal migration experiences thereby providing valuable insights into the concept of migration.

Further, the students chose topics for their research work and the successive application of their knowledge using the fundamentals of the Big 6 research tool allowed them to discover and differentiate the various reasons that led to migration and how the human migration has changed over a period of time.

To demonstrate their content knowledge and conceptual understanding of this unit, the students created a biography of a migrant from their chosen community wherein they successfully showcased the integration of their language and literacy skills. Inquisitiveness of learners was pretty evident and it was a pure joy to watch them apply their interviewing skills while interviewing people from different communities. The young researchers also had a human library session to enhance their understanding of their chosen community. The students also demonstrated mutual cooperation and teamwork while concocting their final work along with evaluating themselves.

The clock is ticking and the students are now demonstrating their understanding of the unit through their Summative Assessment. Countdown now begins…  52  days to go for the PYP Exhibition. 
 
Looking forward to continuous support from your end.

Goa Super Cup

 

GOA SUPER CUP IS NEAR

Dear Parents

We are pleased to present you information about the Goa Super Cup – Season 6 (9 – 13 May 2019).

The GOA SUPER CUP (GSC) is India’s premier youth football tournament held annually in the state of Goa. The May 2019 edition will be the SIXTH edition of the GSC.

ABOUT GOA SUPER CUP: The GSC is organised by Football School of India (FSI). FSI is headquartered in Navi Mumbai & has over 22 training centres across India. The GSC’s organising committee includes the founders of FSI who are former India international players & are currently involved with India’s national teams in various capacities. The organising committee also includes heads & managers with more than 6 years of experience in organising & managing Indian teams on tours to more than one dozen annual youth tournaments in several European countries, which is the football hub of the world. With the combined experience of these committee members, the GSC has been designed to provide a safe, healthy, India-centric environment for budding Indian players to play in a high-quality youth tournament.

Importance: The GSC provides your child & his team the opportunity to compete in an inspiring atmosphere. The GSC brings together academy & school teams from different parts of the country as well as the Gulf countries. GSC attempt to ensure that teams from different regions will face each other at the group stages. At a young age, this can help your child to feel any difference in playing styles or natural attributes like physical structure, strength, agility, etc. of their opponents from other regions.

Thanks to the strong network of the GSC organising committee, scouts of various Indian teams are present at the tournament. This means that your child has the best chance of being noticed for his talent or potential & if lucky, a call-up to a bigger team or even the national team camp is possible!

As the GSC is set to expand in the coming years, we believe the participation & winning certificates from the GSC will gather more value. Apart from the football, your child will be having a lot of fun along with the learning with his team mates – it is Goa after all! Important lessons in team-work, social behaviour, self-discipline, hygiene will occur to the child & the 4 days away from parents will allow the players to know a little more about themselves; to grow as individuals. In effect, we will be contributing a little towards creating mentally & physically healthy youth for our nation.  

  • Structure: The GSC will be held in following age-categories:-
Category Born in & After Match Format
Under 11 Boys 2008 7 v 7 (7 players + 4 substitutes; 1 coach) 15 mnts halves; 3 mnts half-time
