The celebration of our students’ reading habits will be concluded with the last Book Review/Retell for this academic session.
Students are challenged to read 1 book each month related to different genres independently. (Parents read for grade 1 and grade 2). Once a book is read, students give a book talk, share a retell/review of the book with their peers, HRT and in some cases with the volunteer parents.
We are also looking for parent volunteers to be a part of the Reading Club and witness book talk/ retell/ review of book read, given by our students.
Book Review/ retell/ talk, will be happening during school assembly slot on 29th March 2019 i.e Day 2 between 8:55 am-9:45 a.m.
Interested parents need to fill up the form latest by 24th March 2019

With one more cycle gone by we reach closer to the D-day. But this cycle was a mix of emotions.
The students began this cycle by applying their knowledge of the Mathematical concepts learned so far as they appeared for the term-end assessment.
They were enthusiastic inquirers while researching and identifying two issues which they would like to take a step towards resolution. Post the research, they made an informed choice of focusing on one such local or global issue of personal significance and the anticipated action that they would be taking as a small step towards bringing about a change. This issue became their topic for the PYP Exhibition.
They also appreciated their culture and especially their mother tongue by sharing their thoughts, food and knowledge through the Mother tongue assembly.
Then came the day of playing for their section’s pride and bringing honour to the class by winning the trophies of being the champions of the Grade 6 in games like Kho Kho, Kabaddi, Langdi and Tug of War.
With all the zeal and ferocity they fought but as we know there is only one winner!
The next day started with aches and pains, with bruises, sprains and fractures but their strong will brought them back to the school. And, they were presented with another choice. This time about the medium of expression. Some confused, some sure and some bouncing all around with their choices of the medium, for their artistic fire had been given a fresh supply of oxygen.
To add to their excitement, they also celebrated the World Maths Day by playing the Math Games created by their peers.
With all the excitement of working on something they want to and the way they want to showcase their learning, they were introduced to their group members and their teacher-in-charge. They shared their ideas for action and understanding of the topic, with their group members. They tried to know the teacher-in-charge a little better as they were to work with her for the upcoming gigantic task.
Finally, the cycle did come to an end but it is yet not the end of their adventure called the ‘PYP Exhibition’.
Thanks and regards
Grade 6 Team

Please note that Grade 3 and 4 Drums and Guitar students’ performance will be held separately and the date for the same is 25th March 2019.
Over the past years, it has been observed that parents tend to start walking out of the venue as soon as their child’s performance is over which is disrespectful to the students, teachers and other parents and also creates disturbance at the venue. This experience led us to set the following rules for the audience:
- Parents cannot leave the venue in the middle of a performance. Exit will be prohibited once you enter. Security will be posted at each venue. Kindly cooperate with the staff and treat them with respect.
- Parents of Grade 3 and 4 students (except Drums and Guitar) are expected to be seated at the venue by 8:25 am.
- Parents of Grade 5 and 6 students are expected to be seated at the venue by 11:25 am.
- Parents will be not allowed to enter a venue once the performance has started.
- RFID card will be checked at the school entry and exit.
Wish you all a happy celebration of learning…!!! Thank you.
