Week 23

"How did it get late so soon? " So rightfully said by Dr Suess. We ended the last week of the first month of the year having so much fun. We began the week by completing our reports on the library. We then got set to plan our interviews. We brainstormed what a good interview looks like and accordingly we set to work. We planned our interviews.....made a list of all the questions we wanted to ask keeping in mind the aim of the interview.

We interviewed and recorded all that they said. The following week we will work on presenting the information to our friends.

In Math, we learnt about equivalent fractions. We explored that the fractions that have the same value but look different are called equivalent fractions.

We also had some fun learning fun math facts about ourselves.


                             We measured each other height and found out how tall we were.



 We measured our head circumference and measured it.




We compiled all that in a sheet called - All About Me Math
(Inspired from Teachers pay

This week we also had or dance assembly. Thank you Ms. Abigail for teaching us these cool moves.

How we organize ourselves

Thank you to all the parents for the positive response and being so accommodating to the rescheduled PTM slots.

This week, we began by understanding what a mission is. We discussed about what our school mission statement says and then looked at the IB mission statement and highlighted what was common between the two.

                              We made flow charts to understand how our school is organised.

To understand further how the different departments in the school work together to achieve our school mission, we interviewed Ms. Nirmala our library co coordinator. We learnt how our school library is organised using the Dewey Decimal system. Ms. Nirmala also showed us the process of how a book is numbered ....stamped....cataloged.... and then finally shelved. 

Our school Library provides information, inculcates ideas, and develops knowledge that is so
essential to functioning successfully in today’s information and knowledge based society. It is
fundamental to our school library to equip students with life long learning skills and develop in them
creative thinking and imagination, and enabling them to live as ideal and responsible citizens. This is what we at  Edubridge want to achieve for our students, and our librarian Ms. Nirmala is helping us achieve it.
We are now working on writing a report to present all this information that Ms. Nirmala has given us.

We also made a graph and sorted the pictures of the various people in school that help us. Some of them teach us, some keep us safe and some of them make sure all is clean for us.

                  In Math, we have began working with fractions. We have learnt what a proper, improper
and mixed fraction is.

Getting ready to start our new unit - How we organise ourselves!

This week we began working on our new UOI under the theme - How we organise ourselves. Under this unit we will be looking at how in a workplace different people share different responsibility toward a common purpose.

We began with a game that required the students to work as a team.

We faced problems, but we found out a solution to it.....and finally we did achieve our goal.

Post the game we reflected on what made them succeed in their task.

Post this activity we moved on to thinking what id co operation. What does it look like.....what dos it feel like......what does it sound like.

We discussed the same in our group and made a Y chart on the same.

As this unit is going to be all about working in groups, we got into groups again..... discussed.....shared what we though about - connection /importance of co operation between colleagues.

In Language, we are learning how to write a non chronological report. We looked at different report samples and learnt the different features of a non chronological report.

In Math, we have been learning about doubles and near doubles of numbers.  Stay tuned for the Monsters NNRSJ band coming soon to rock you with their band!!

Coming Soon.......MONSTER'S NNRSJ!!!!!!

Welcome 2014

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.

So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever.” 
― Neil Gaiman

Wishing all my students and their families a very very happy new year.
