Week 10 & 11 Update – Celebrating Sports & Women’s Day
Once again, we welcome you all to the 12th week of the 2nd term of the 2018-2019 school year. Glory be to God for bringing us all back from our mid-term break safely, and now we shall resume providing quality education to our wonderful students.
A Quick Recap of Week 8
In week 8, the children in the Sunflower class (aged 2 – 3 years) were counting from 0 – 50, identifying numbers from 0 – 20, and writing numbers from 0 – 12.
The Morning Glory class (aged 3 – 4 years) was writing lower case alphabets from ‘a’ to ‘z’ and combining both upper- and lower-case letters, like ‘Aa’, ‘Bb’, ‘Cc’, etc. To read the full story, please visit this link.
Week 11 in Review
Our school was in recess to celebrate the 62nd National Independence Day on March 6, which was also the date our mid-term holidays began. After a pleasant holiday, the school reopened on March 11, and we resumed our classes.
During the 10th and 11th weeks, we conducted a wide variety of interesting new lessons and activities with our students:
In creative art, the kindergarten classes painted natural and manmade objects and practiced sewing with running stitches. Their language activities included reading 3 – 6-letter words, speaking the phonic sound ‘ph’, and writing simple descriptive words about themselves. In mathematics, they learnt how to add sets, and in environmental studies, they discussed personal safety.
The children in the Sunflower class began writing the letter ‘N’ and numerals from 0 to 14. In their religious and moral education classes, the kids learnt about one of God’s most splendid creations – plant life, and as part of their creative activities, they explored round objects like oranges, balls, etc.
The Morning Glory class learnt how to form 2-letter words that combined vowels and consonants, such as ‘b’ + ‘a’ = ‘ba’ and ‘a’ + ‘n’ = ‘an’. In creative art, they explored circular and semi-circular objects. In religious and moral education, the children learnt about the leaders in our community, and in environmental studies, they discussed light and its usage.
Following our calendar of activities, we held our annual sports day on the school premises on March 15, Friday. The activities included outdoor games such as football, sack race, musical chairs, and dancing competition, and indoor games like ludo and ampe. Various classes in the school took part in the competition. It was a great success, and both students and teachers had a delightful time.
HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK – International Women’s Day
On March 8, the world celebrated International Women’s Day. At PEI, we joined in by showing appreciation to our mothers and sisters, and all other female children, youth, and adults. We gave an inspiring talk about encouraging them to aim high and achieve their goals without being affected by negative societal pressures.
