Newsletter for the Month of December 2019
A Very Happy and Prosperous 2020
Little Pearls Team wishes you “A Very Happy and Prosperous 2020”.
The Theme for the Month of December was “The Universe and World Around Us” and will continue for the month of January too.
Children are learning and exploring about space, astronauts, planets, stars, the Moon, the Sun, and our Solar System with hands on activities, stories, rhymes, songs, and games.
It is fun for children, because it stretches their imagination, forcing them to contemplate about stars and planets. It inspires them to learn more about the universe around them as they realize that the world doesn’t end outside the front door.
Hands-on activities teach the young ones about the universe. Pretending they are a planet and are rotating around the Sun makes them think about rotation and gravitational force. They are doing activities to learn about phases of moon and also about moon and its surface. Along with the above, children are doing literacy and numeracy activities related to the theme.
With Christmas around the corner, children were told about importance of sharing and caring.
With winter setting in, children were spoken to about change in seasons and how days are now becoming shorter and colder, the winter clothing, fruits and vegetables.
December is the most beautiful time of the year with Christmas decorations and festivities. We lit up the Christmas tree, sang carols and had a Christmas class party which was most enjoyable for children. School had a special assembly in which Peach Pearls (PN2) class enacted a musical play on Christmas theme. Teachers sang carols and performed a dance for our little ones. Our very own Shirin Ma’am, dressed up as Santa and went around school, spreading the spirit of Christmas and distributing candies. Children had so much fun and the school was filled with their laughter and smiles.
We would like to say a heartfelt “Thank You” to each and everyone who donated Christmas gifts for our Arpan children. They children were happy and excited to receive such thoughtful gifts.
The month of December is also associated with the onset of admission process to formal schools. We have already sent information to all parents regarding this. Incase of any further help or query, please contact reception for an appointment.
School reopens on 15th Jan 2020 .
