    CLASS V DECLAMATION CONTEST
       ...News & Updates

    CLASS V DECLAMATION CONTEST (19 JAN 2019) 

    The students of Class V participated in a Declamation competition held in the school on 19 January 2019. The theme of the competition was ‘Patriotic Expressions’.

    The participants took the meaning of patriotism to an entirely different level by diverging into issues closer to their understanding. They spoke about voluntary service by individuals of society, the common people, encouraging them to express their patriotism by directing their knowledge towards making the country an ideal place in every aspect - by keeping it clean, obeying rules, doing good, being responsible, spreading awareness and helping the community in whichever way possible. 

    It was a pleasure to hear the children explain the true meaning of patriotism as not just love or pride for one's country, but in being a good citizen by trying to curb the prevalent ills damaging the culture of the country. They urged everyone to express their patriotism by doing whatever is viable to eradicate social evils like littering, polluting, poverty, illiteracy and corruption. 

    The speakers brought out the true essence of patriotism by asking everyone to pledge and pitch in to make their country a beautiful and worthy place and also to consider not just their country but the entire world as their homeland to make the planet earth a better place for all. Through this activity the children have proved beyond doubt that patriotism does not have boundaries.

            MEASUREMENT WEEK  AT JUNIOR SCHOOL (07-11 JAN 2019)

            “Mathematics is the language with which God has written the universe.”
            --- Galileo Galilei

            Mathematics is an incredibly important subject which is used in all walks of life. Math helps us describe the world around us in a language which is internationally understood and helps us solve problems of all manners. Mathematical skills are crucial for a wide array of analytical, technological, scientific, economic and soft skill applications.

            To encourage young learners to get involved, to dispel math phobia, to create a love for the subject and to perceive the connection of mathematical concepts with real life situations, ‘Measurement Week’ was celebrated at TAFS junior school. This celebration, over the course of the week, was a fantastic opportunity for children to engage in Math activities, designed to challenge their thinking and develop their math problem solving skills.

            The students of classes UKG –V enjoyed taking part in various interesting activities related to the theme.

            ·        The little ones of UKG measured desks and tables using scales and measuring tape. They also enjoyed checking their heights in their class and learnt about tall and short.

            ·        Class I students used their little hands to measure the smart boards and the desks in the class by hand span method.

            ·        Class II children weighed themselves on a scale. Their school bags were also weighed. They were made aware of the importance of carrying lighter school bags on their shoulders.

            ·        Class III students were all excited to use the foot span method to find the perimeter of the basketball court. Since it was a non-standard unit of measurement and the results were different for each child, an analysis was done by making class-wise bar graph .Through this activity they also learnt to respect individual differences.

            ·        Class IV students used colourful origami square papers to find the area of the floor tiles, in their class rooms as well as the corridors and the assembly area.

            ·         Class V students worked in groups to measure the length, breadth, perimeter and area of the newly tiled area at school, grass carpet in the play area and open stage using metre scales.

            These week long activities generated intense interest in the students and it was indeed an interesting and educational experience for the students.
