Namaste Dear Parents,
News from the PRE-PRIMARY
We have successfully completed our first term and are all set to have a great 2nd Term ahead!!!!
New theme: ‘Learning through stories’
The science of storytelling is the most powerful way to activate our brains. Stories play a vital role in the growth and development of children. They help children to understand that books are a useful source of information. They also help in coping with feelings and language development.
The theme, ‘Learning through stories’ was introduced on Tuesday 7th October. To make learning fun-filled and interesting the ‘WoW Factor’ was created through display of various popular stories in each Pre-primary class. Through this theme children will be learning to express themselves through stories and to understand the morals that we need to inculcate.
On Tuesday 14th and Wednesday 15th children visited different pre-primary classes and enjoyed story sessions. Children were introduced to stories in different forms like picture reading, puppet reading, audio visuals, etc.
Visit To The Library
To understand the term ‘books are our best friends’; children were taken to the school library on Thursday 16th October. Children were explained the advantages and importance of a ‘Library’. They were given an opportunity to choose their own book and browse through it.
