NEWS FROM PRE-PRIMARY
“A child who learns about traffic rules and road discipline will grow up to be a law-abiding citizen. The habit of obeying traffic rules teaches a person a sense of responsibility, empathy for others and respecting the other person’s rights,” – The Hindu
It was an exciting, fun-filled days of role plays which our children as well as their parents thoroughly enjoyed. Please read on for all the interesting details.
ROLE PLAY ON ‘ ROAD TRANSPORT’
In view of the importance of road safety , an elaborate pathway was made in the school premises on Wednesday, 8th November to ensure active participation of students and get an idea of road safety rules.
To familiarize the students with traffic and road safety, they were made to do traffic role play. Children were asked to get their bicycles, motorbikes, toy cars etc. to drive around the drives and pathways set up in school. Children were explained the importance of safety on the road when walking as a pedestrian or as one driving a vehicle. Children drove around the pathway and had a super learning experience.
Interesting educative traffic slogans were designed by the Sr. KG students. Slogans like ‘‘ A motorbike is for two, not for too many’ and many such were made and put up around the parking lot.
A wide variety of Fruits and Vegetables in good quantities was bought on Thursday, 9th November for the school vegetable market.
The students of Jr. KG were involved in a ‘learning with fun’ activity of packing all these fruits and vegetables in specific measured quantities in sealed bags. Children learned about different fruits and vegetables, felt their texture and learnt about their packing before they are taken to the market to be sold to the customers.
VEGETABLE MARKET- SR. KG
To continue with the process of ‘Farm to the Table’ and to provide healthy food education and to promote healthy eating habits, a fruit and vegetable market was set up in the school on Friday, 10th November.
Durries were spread out and many small stalls were created with fruits and vegetables for sale. Children came dressed up as vendors and they looked truly adorable. Parents were also invited to come and buy vegetables from our tiny vendors in the vegetable market. There were proper counters made for payment of purchases. Children not only learned about different vegetables but also about the whole buying and selling process in the vegetable market. It was an informative as well as a fun experience for both the children and their parents.
