Lacing is one of the precursor skills to shoe lacing tying, sewing and writing. This activity strengthens the fine muscles and grip of fingers and also helps in enhancing hand eye coordination. We introduced lacing activity to our Junior K.G. students during their P.L.E. period. Check out the photographs of the little tots focussing on this skill building activity.
Our senior K.G students had sheer fun during parachute play in their edu-sports period. In this exciting game, students focussed on keeping the colourful balls inside the parachute. Such games fosters team spirit, concentration along with strengthen gross motor skills and enhancing muscular coordination.
An interactive mother’s workshop was arranged in the school for parents of senior K.G. students. During the sessions, mothers were briefed about the methodologies adopted by the teachers to teach new concepts to students. Parents got the chance to clarify their doubts and stay informed about the syllabus till March. The healthy discussion between the mothers and teachers helps both parties to walk hand in hand towards a better preschool experience for everyone.
Students of Senior K.G. were engaged in sensory play sessions during which they got the opportunity to explore their five senses. They understood the importance of the sense of sight when they were asked to find hidden objects. Their sense of hearing was tested when their teachers asked them to identify different sounds. The flower pounding activity focused on honing their olfactory sense as after pounding the flowers children continued to check if the pounded flower still smells the same as the whole one. The little ones enjoyed adding toppings on Monaco biscuits and eating the same as well- this activity helped in developing their gustatory sense. Finally, sense of touch was explored by touching different types of surfaces such has hard , soft, rough etc. Series of such activities helped in their cognitive growth and made them more aware of the world around.
The last working day of 2019 was a day of jollity when our Playgroup (Early Child Care) students enjoyed free playtime. Classrooms were speckled with colourful pillows and balls and slides were set up inside. The munchkins thoroughly their playtime inside the classroom and ended the day with so much happiness, only to come back fresh and re-energised in the new year!
Our Senior K.G. students got immersed into the 3D world recently with their special 3D glasses on. They were thrilled to see their favourite characters such as smurfs, minions, ice age characters etc. up close and tried to touch and catch them. This session was not just fun, but engaging and educative too as the students were shown how different continents were formed from a single mass.
The festive spirit of Christmas took over Satellite School for Children with the entire school campus dazzling in stars, bells , and Christmas tree. Students celebrated the birthday of Jesus Christ by spreading the message of love and happiness. They were thrilled to meet, greet and shake a leg with Santa Claus, who gave them chocolates as well. Children made fond memories of Christmas 2019 and were so happy to receive a Christmas tree as a takeaway.
It’s time for Christmas and our senior K.G. students filled their cup of cheer with a special session of Christmas craft. They were thrilled to learn how to make a Christmas tree by folding papers. The classrooms were filled with joy and laughter, marking the spirit of the festivities as the little ones enjoyed their activity with their friends and teachers.
‘Hop, Pick and Place’- A Fun Exercise Our little munchkins of Playgroup (Early Child Care) enjoyed a session of hopping like kangaroos, picking up the colourful blocks from one side and putting them on the other. The little ones were too excited to move about and play this little game that strengthened their colour concept as well.
What a fun-tastic time our Playgroup (Early Child Care) students had as they celebrated ‘blue’ day at school. They came dressed in blue and were delighted to see their teachers wearing the same colour too. The theme of the blue day was ‘Ocean’ and accordingly the classrooms were decorated with different aquatic creatures found in seas and oceans. Teachers also arranged for special games such as fishing game, blue dropper games, etc. Students used ear buds and dabbed colours on the octopus which was their takeaway for the day. The fun quotient increased as they sang ‘machli jal ki rani’ and danced to the tune of ‘Baby shark’ with their friends and teachers.
