The Pre-Primary children are fascinated with animals, huge animals like the giraffe or an elephant down to the very small creatures like insects and lizards. The Nursery teacher Mrs. Anjana Tiwari took the initiative of nurturing a caterpillar she had caught. On the 3rd of October she bought it to the school so that the children could have a closer look, see it eating the leaves and crawling. Not only were the kids excited as they have already read the story “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” but even the teachers were amazed and intrigued by this fat well fed creature that will soon transform into a delicate colorful butterfly.
On 2nd of October our very little ones of Grades I and II assembled in school for their very first Skype lesson. It was a story telling session by the renowned author Sarah Aronson from Chicago, USA. The teachers and the children excitedly tuned in at 9:30 in the morning. Sarah began her story telling after a quick chat with the children. She read out two of her books “The Wish List – The Worst Fairy Godmother Ever!”
The Second book “Just Like Rube Goldberg” interested the children more especially when she asked the children to give her some crazy ideas. She told the children that some of the things she does regularly are reading, drawing, and jotting ideas so that she can refer to them later. She also said that some of her story writer friends get together and share ideas. On being asked by one of our kid’s who the illustrator of her book was – she said “Heather” from the UK whom she had never met.
She gave a very valuable tip to the children saying that they must have three things not only to be a writer but in whatever they do.
Kindness, determination and gusto. She acted out the meaning of gusto- excitement, energy and confidence for whatever they wanted to do.
She concluded by telling the children that she was initially a physio therapist but took to writing stories when someone dared her to do it.
She invited the children to write and mail their stories to her. Everybody thanked her and waved goodbye.
The Super Chef activity “Nutty Affair” was conducted for the Pre-Primary children on 26th September’18. They were eager to make a cake on their own. The cake had ingredients like biscuits, nuts, milkmaid, sugar, cocoa powder and tuttifrutti.

Finally they enjoyed eating this scrumptious delight.
On 28th September the Pre-Primary students were transported to a village complete with huts, clay pots and a potter busy with his craft. They had a wonderful hands-on learning experience as they learnt the art of moulding clay on an electric pottery wheel with the help of a potter.
The children enthusiastically waited for their turn to mould the clay with their tiny hands.
Every child was really thrilled to experience this activity that had a village backdrop and traditional folk music playing in the background. They learnt about potter, pottery wheel, potter’s clay, mud, press, moulding, shaping, etc.
It was a day well spent and it’s truly said that, “Sometimes its good to get your hands dirty.”
