ES News

The kindergarten students started off this semester on the yummy ‘food’ theme. Although they are at a stage where they are simply exposed to information and knowledge, the students turned out to be inquirers and reflectors on this topic. They enjoyed themselves as they made a huge food pyramid in the class with the different food groups and sorting out our toy foods into the respective groups. They also went to our ES kitchen to interview the Food Services Manager and cooks about the menus and about the planning of a healthy meal. We rounded up the unit by the kids designing their own healthy meal and presenting it on a poster. They had fun while learning how to have a good balanced diet in their day to day life !!!!

Grades 1 & 2 worked on the theme ‘Stories’. They were exposed to different kinds of stories and ways of telling them including puppetry, acting, drawing and writing. This was their own story, which was shown and read as a TV screen model. While presenting this each student dressed up as one of their favorite characters.

It was an enriching experience for my students as well as for me.
