Presidium organized a virtual activity for little Presidians of Grade Nursery to develop their socio-emotional skills. Family is an important part of every child’s world. Children love to tell everyone about their immediate family. This enhances their language skills and shows their belongingness towards them fulfilling the socio-emotional skills in them. Nothing can be great to show their bond and love for them by making a family photo frame with their favourite family picture in it. Students made beautiful photo frames with decorative beads and laces and leftover rakhis. While making the frames most of them told the teacher about their parents and the place where they took that particular picture enhancing their cognitive skills too.
हिंदी के महत्त्व पर जोर देने और हर पीढ़ी के बीच इसको बढावा देने के लिए प्रिसीडियम में हिंदी भाषा के प्रति सम्मान प्रकट करने हेतु ‘हिंदी दिवस’ के अवसर पर एक विशेष सभा का आयोजन किया गया। सभा का मुख्य उद्देश्य अपनी भाषा, संस्कृति एवं मूल्यों को बरकरार रखना था। इस अवसर पर विद्यार्थियों द्वारा अनेक गतिविधियों का आयोजन किया गया। कविता पाठ भाषण एवं शब्द अंताक्षरी के माध्यम से शब्दों के शुद्ध उच्चारण द्वारा नए-नए शब्द बनाकर विद्यार्थियों ने अपनी सूझ-बूझ का परिचय दिया। व्याकरण की समझ को मजबूत बनाते हुए विद्यार्थियों ने चित्र के माध्यम से विभिन्न व्याकरण के विषयों को प्रस्तुत किया। हिंदी भाषा के महत्त्व पर प्रकाश डालते हुए एक लघु नाटिका भी प्रस्तुत की गई। इस अवसर पर विद्यालय की प्रधानाचार्या ‘श्रीमती निशी भटनागर’ ने सभी को ‘हिंदी दिवस’ की हार्दिक बधाई दी। उन्होंने बच्चों को संबोधित करते हुए कहा कि हिंदी हमारे देश की संस्कृति और संस्कारों का प्रतिबिम्ब है।
Presidians had the utmost pleasure learning about numbers and the concept of before and after through an activity using different cutouts like a circle, triangle, clouds, etc. To give firsthand knowledge, students were asked to cut out the patterns and write numbers 1-40 on each cutout. Numbers were shown and students were asked what comes before and after those numbers. Students gave the best of their responses to support the learning. Students learned and performed the activity altogether in the online session. In the end, it became an activity of fun for learning. Taking out numbers and dancing with it was their favourite part and they were moving their hands to the rhythm of the numbers.
As we all know teachers are the most important part of a child's life so it becomes all the more important to give love and respect to teachers. Teachers' day is dedicated to Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan – the second President of India who was a great academic philosopher and one of the most well-known diplomats, scholars, President of India, and above all a great teacher. The students of Presidium celebrated Teacher’s Day with great fun and enthusiasm. The assembly began with the lighting of the lamp followed by a chorus song all dedicated to the heroes of our life: The Teachers. The head of the school delivered a touching speech and overwhelmingly said in her speech that they are very proud to have a day like that. A speech on the life of Dr. S. Radhakrishan was presented by the students. A beautiful poem highlighting the importance of a guru (teacher) was also recited showcasing the love, affection and bond that holds together each and every member of the Presidium family. Teachers played some games, danced and ended the celebration with beautiful busts of memories.
Science experiments are always a big hit especially the ones related to light and teaching about Light can be a lot of fun! This science experiment for Grade 6 was conducted through a virtual medium to explain to the students, how light only travels in a straight path. It is not feasible to determine the path of light in day-to-day activities but through this experiment, they learned about it easily and quickly. For this, the students lit a candle and placed two cardboards adjacent to it, one behind the other. They made one hole in both the cardboards exactly at a place from where they could see the flame of the candle. When the light was turned off they observed the rays emerging from the candle and going straight into those holes.
We, at Presidium, orchestrated an activity in the Social Science Class named “Conventional & Non-Conventional Sources of Energy” for Grade 8. By this aspect, learners came to know various sources of energy. Also, the young minds were also taught the advantages & disadvantages of these sources. In this activity, learners prepared charts on the topic & presented wonderful explanations. The complete task was regulated under the guidance of the Social Science Teacher. All the students were full of energy and zeal while performing the activity. This way students have been exposed to Art Integrated Learning and observational Learning.
