Jr. Kg – November & December 2016

     

Theme for the month: Growing Healthy

A nutritious balanced diet is the key to good health. By eating a healthy diet and combining it with exercise one could end up leading a longer and more vibrant life. It gives us great pleasure to introduce the topic of Growing Healthy- which includes a variety of fruits, vegetables and the importance of exercise, to keep oneself fit and healthy.

Effective usage of Audio Visual learning, technology, art and craft and Role plays will be the methodology used.

Language:

Your child will learn the letters ‘Jj’, ‘Zz’, ‘Ww’, and ‘Vv’ with their phonic sounds, how to blend and read 3 letter words and  learn tricky words: of, by, so, have. Along with these, various activities like rhymes and stories, show and tell, picture talk, book browsing and newspaper reading will be done on a regular basis.

Do reinforce the use of tricky words: your, you, all, are.

Numeracy:

There will be a progression in numerals, concepts of colours and shapes.
