Namaste Dear Parents,

A sneak-peek at the first week at Suchitra Campus.

News from the PRE-PRIMARY

We’d like to extend a big welcome to all of our families as we continue an enriching and exciting school year with your child at Suchitra Academy.

On 16.06.14, Monday, we welcomed Pre-Primary children Back to School!

We hope that you had a relaxed, fun-filled summer. It seems like everyone grew at least an inch over the summer!

It is going to be an exciting year ahead for our Pre-Schoolers. Our rooms are bright with walls scrubbed and freshly painted, teachers have prepared the classroom with colourful, meaningful, theme related WOW factor to make them inviting for your children.

A new section- Jr. KG. C has been added. There have been few shiftings to balance the number of children in each class. We also have added few new teachers to our Pre-Primary strength. I am sure by now you might be having the name and contact details of the respective teachers.

Our session began on the Monday 16thJune, with an introduction to the new theme – ‘Farm to the Table / Transport’. Children were excited to see the setup of their classrooms. Teachers’ effort of setting up the WOW factor paid off well, as the inquisitive minds were triggered by the displays. Loads of questions came out of the box and a rich discussion on the theme was prompted.

Importance of ‘Father’s Day’ was also discussed. The session was summed up with children making ‘Father’s Day’ card for their Dad, and proudly carried it home for their Dad.

Thursday 19thJune : Yellow day – children and all the staff members came were dressed in yellow making the day sunnier and more golden. We also conducted a show and tell activity with yellow objects. Children came forward confidently and spoke about their yellow object.

IMG-20140620-WA0000Colour-days will be ongoing through the academic year. We will learn the primary colours first and then begin mixing them to see what other colours can be made. Sr. Kg. children are learning how to grade colours.

 

 

 

Friday 20thJune : Dramatization (introduction to a farmer) : Teachers were all dressed up as farmers and put up a skit for kids to understand 20140620_092006the importance of farmers in our lives. The learning was enriched when children tried to enact the skit themselves in the classroom.

Sowing activity was conducted to understand the process of germination. Children have sown seeds in transparent cups and are watching it grow every day.

A few Reminders :

  • Please check the child’s diary every day.
  • Label all the items.
  • Do not send your child with any jewellery, except stud earrings.
  • See that your kid’s nails are cut and trimmed as they tend to hurt each other during play time.
  • Children should come in proper uniform – no sandals and slippers to school.
  • An extra pair of clothes with a plastic bag should always be in your child’s bag.

Wednesday 25th June – LittleChef at work

Thursday 26th June    – Visit to the Farm

Friday 27th June          – Green Bowl Day

Children were pleasantly surprised to see not only a few new classrooms, a new dining area but a lot of modifications at other places too!

AND inside the class were some great-fun, ice-breaking activities and some small welcome gifts from IMG-20140612-WA0016their Class Mentors.

I am sure your child returned home to tell you all about it !!!!

Nature Walk

On Tuesday, 17th June, Grade Iwent for a NATURE WALK. The spirit of adventure and exploration ran high in their veins. The children, along with their teachers, walked around the beautiful Suchitra campus and observed the various trees and insects found there. They were thrilled to find dried drumsticks and used them as rattles!! It was an enlightening experience to see the various trees like jackfruit, mango, Jamun etc and experience the texture of the leaves, the bark and the fruits. Dear parents, we are sure this education will stay with them for a long time to come.

Dear parents it would be great if you make time to give us a feed-back on how you find our newsletters, what else you would like to see in them, whether they are of any worth to you and what suggestions you may like to make to us.

Unfortunately, I don’t even know if they add any value because it looks like such a one-way communication.

I would love to hear from you.

Warm Regards

NEWSLETTER 6th June 2014

Welcome back and Namaste Dear Parents,
It’s that time of the year again when we eagerly look forward to the student’s return to the campus. I am sure
the children come back refreshed and yearning to be back in school!!!.

And I am also sure that you too want to be free of the constant plans you needed to make to keep your dear children occupied !!!

So here we are ! all ready to get on with the business of teaching and learning.
A lot kept happening while the children were away.

As usual we had our Suchitra Sports Summer Camp. We had about 70 children enjoying a sports Gala during the summer break. A lot of activities were conducted, with swimming being the top most hit. It was an ideal opportunity for the children to enjoy the beautiful campus and play.

When the children come to school on the 12th June they will be in for a few small surprises. Their classroom may have changed; even the wing may have changed!

Dear Parents new classrooms are being added, space is being made to accommodate the growing number of students and the Dining Hall has moved !!!

To meet the challenges of a growing school, more teachers have been appointed. Professional development workshops are being conducted for the teachers since 2nd June. There are workshops on (i) Project Based Learning (ii) Assessment and Evaluations defining teaching Methodology (iii) Identifying Learning Disorders (iv) Ideal Classroom Conduct and (v) School’s Vision and Mission etc.

We are all geared up to restart the session and we are sure that we, as well as our students, will have a wonderful teaching learning experience.
