Newsletter for the Month of September 2018
The rainy season in the city
The rainy season in the city this month, made Creepy Crawlies and Birds a perfect topic for our little ones. Not only are young children naturally interested in them, but we simply head outdoors and the children could observe them up close.
Children in school learnt about the natural environment and the creatures that live there. They observed insects and record information about them through drawings and art and craft. Your child learnt how these living things interact with and affect the environment.
In addition, your child learnt about a variety of insects, how they live, what they eat, and how they communicate. We spoke about ants, butterflies, ladybugs, spiders, and other bugs along with birds like crow, pigeon, peacock, eagle, owl and many more.
Children understood how birds fly with the help of flight feathers and tail feathers, and keep themselves warm with down feathers. Bird cycle, what they eat and their little fledglings was very interesting for them.
This month also saw a lot of celebrations. Independence Day was celebrated with flag hoisting done by Ekta ma’am and some patriotic songs sung by children in the special assembly. This was followed by Eid celebrations. A parent volunteered to share some facts about Eid with a powerpoint presentation and an Eid song. We also had Rakshabandan celebration, where a class conducted a special assembly to talk about the festival. Last though not the least we ended the month with Janamashtmi celebrations where the story of Krishna was narrated to the children and they enjoyed swinging idol of baby Krishna in his cradle. A matki was broken symbolic to the festival.
It was a busy and enjoyable month.
We are looking forward to the next month where we would be talking about Farm and Wild animals.
We will talk about four-legged animals, two-legged animals, what they provide and what they do on a farm. Children will learn that all animals share many similarities and yet are different. We will discuss where and how wild animals live and talk about the importance of keeping them safe.
Looking forward to another busy and active month.
