Activity : Newspaper Bag Making
This activity was planned in order to popularise paper bags as well as to encourage students to make their own bags which would eventually reduce the usage of plastic bags.
Students had come prepared with the required material. Those who already knew how to make paper bags went about making their bags on their own while others were guided by their respective class teachers.
Children expressed themselves in a number of innovative ways. They used glitters, colour pencils, ribbons and stickers to decorate their paper bags. Some of them also wrote messages like ‘Go Green’, ‘Save your Planet’ on their bags!
It was indeed overwhelming to see all the students participate and enjoy this activity.
Activity : Movie review “Rio”
Animated movies have always attracted the attention and interest of kids and a movie review is a unique way to express ones thoughts. So, in order to give the children a fun-filled and interesting activity , Std IV was shown a thought-provoking animated movie ‘Rio’. The activity was conducted in the AV Room in the first two periods. They were first shown the movie and later they were divided into groups. Each group was told to discuss, prepare and share the review in which they mentioned their likes, dislikes and most importantly the values that they learnt through the movie. The children thoroughly enjoyed watching the movie as well as were keen to give their honest feedback on the same. We teachers were overwhelmed to see the joy and the sparkle in their eyes and also got an opportunity to experience the beauty and innocence of young minds. It truly was an amazing experience for them as well as for us.
