Playgroup – January 2017

Theme for the month: The Sky Above us and Beyond

When seen through the eyes of an inquisitive child the world appears to be divided into 3 parts: the land, water and the sky above us.

The sky is really beyond reach and truly a mystery. Every child dreams of flying with the birds in the vast expanse of the sky.

Thus this unit will help your child to identify commonly seen birds with certain characteristics along with their habitat and food habits. Your child will also associate certain adjectives with these particular birds.

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


Vocabulary will be enhanced through the introduction of letters Tt, Uu, Vv, Ww and picture vocabulary   related to the theme. Along with this, various activities like book browsing, picture talk, rhymes and stories will be done on a regular basis.


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

Dates to Remember:

Date Events/Activity Particulars
4.1.17 Crow activity Students to bring an empty tooth paste box.
19.1.17 Soup day Class activity.
23.1.17 Handwriting day Class activity.
25.1.17 Republic day Students to wear tri coloured clothes.
31.1.17 Rehearsal for sports day Detailed circular to follow.

A hard copy of the Rhymes for the month will be given to your child in class.

At Home You Can:

Explore books related to the theme. By reading story books and making your home a print rich space, you will improve your child’s ability to master new learning.

Do make your child share his/her reflections of the stories read. This will develop thinking, reasoning as well as aid in confidence building. Please encourage him/her for every effort made- he/she will do better in a motivating and positive environment.

To enhance your child’s learning experience; you can take them to a bird sanctuary, on a nature walk and feed the birds.

Looking forward to an eventful month of learning and celebrations.
