Toddler’s Fun time… Warm welcome to Mum and Dad, we are here again to share our little progress. We animal lovers had great time with our Animal Theme. We had fun with lots of art activities on our animal theme. Now we are able to recognize no. 3 and 4 with their values with concept of big and small. As well as counting of numbers 1-30.We took another step forward towards letter land through letter “c” and “a” with their sound. It was exciting to deal with
pre writing activities. We had a very good time with new and interesting
stories .We enjoyed with our action rhymes like: Baa Baa black Sheep, Old McDonald had a farm, five little ducks and more and more. Now we are looking forward to have great time in our new theme.
In the festival mood we are going to start our new theme which is based on “Transport”. In this we are going to know “what are transports, needs of transport. We are curious to develop our reorganization of no. 5 and 6 with their values with concept of “In and out”,along with counting of numbers 1-40. As we had very good time with letter “c” and “a” , we want to have friendship with more letter land friends through introduction of letter “d”, ”g” and “l” with their sound. In our pre writing activities we are going to learn about Standing & Sleeping lines. We always enjoy new and interesting stories .We are going to learn our new action rhymes on our new theme “Transport”. Few of them arte as: Wheels on the bus, Mere pass ek cycle hai, Down by the station, Traffic light, Row you boat and more and more. In this Diwali time we are going to enjoy a lot with other activities also.

Dear Parents, We welcome you to the monthly News letter of Grade4. Students have learnt about “Invaders” under the theme “Where we are in place and time”. They got the understanding about the invaders and reflected on their learning through Power point presentations, chart work and class room discussions. Connections were evident as children did research about the different rulers in India and the impact they left on our country. As a result of learning about the invaders the students were enthusiastic to do further research and learnt about invaders all around the world & discussed about it. Now they are ready to explore about “World Wonders” under the theme “How we express ourselves”. Students continued with literature novel „Little women‟, integrating grammar exercises with it .The students were also engaged with strip activity on Adverbs, where they made their own sentences & then verbs & the adverbs were marked & shaded in different colors by their peers .
