Physical fitness is an important part of growing up the healthy way. Our school with its vast, green campus and plenty of open spaces is a beautiful place for walk and exploration.  With the idea of experiencing new sights, sounds and smells, and add to the environmental awareness a ‘Nature Walk’ was conducted for classes I & II on 28 Aug 2018, in the school premises.

The students were encouraged to observe the natural foliage around the school. They picked up dried leaves and they felt the difference of the texture with the fresh ones. They looked around for birds and their nests. They listened to and watched and observed the tiny insects and birds. They also appreciated the variety of leaves on different plants.

Children, being naturally inquisitive, asked many questions and tried to guess some of the answers themselves. They ran, jumped and hopped as they walked excitedly along the trail. They interacted with their classmates enthusiastically and were more happy and relaxed when they returned to their classes and shared their observations. It felt like a magical event for them who had a lot of stories to tell about the day!

This gave them a rich opportunity to develop numerous social skills, showcase their creativity and improve their self expression. For these students it was a peek into the colourful world of theatre, on how to emote on stage and express themselves on a given topic.

      This festival was preceded by a drama workshop on the topic, ‘Creating suspense in a play’, which was held on 24 July 2018 at Vasant Valley School.

                                  English Department Activity

                                  Poster Making on synonyms, antonyms and contronyms

                                  Vocabulary (the knowledge of words and word meanings) is one of the key building blocks in learning a new language. The more words a learner knows the more they will be able to understand what they hear and read and the better they will become at expressing what they want to when speaking or writing. The larger a student’s vocabulary becomes, the easier it will be to connect a new word with words they already know.  A large vocabulary raises achievement and confidence and aids the student in becoming an independent learner.

                                  To further their love for language an  intra-class activity of poster making on synonyms, antonyms and contronyms was conducted for the students of class VIII by the English Department on Aug 16,2018. . The activity was conducted during the regular English period in the classroom.

                                  The objective of this activity was to  encourage children to use a range of vocabulary in their writing.The students participated in large numbers with great zeal and enthusiasm.
