Playgroup – August 2016      

Theme for the month:Animal Kingdom

When children have opportunities to see wild life, a whole new world of wonder can open up. The animals needn’t be large or exotic, even the sight of common creatures such as ducks or squirrels would be fascinating for children.

In order to make it interesting for our toddlers, the theme ‘Animal kingdom’ is designed in such a way that children will develop a deeper understanding of animals that they are really fascinated by. Your child will be able to identify the animals and distinguish them from pet / domestic animals.

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


Vocabulary will be enhanced through the introduction of letters ‘Dd’, ‘Ee’, ‘Ff’, ‘Gg’ and picture vocabulary related to the theme. Along with these, various activities like book browsing, picture talks, rhymes and stories will be done on a regular basis.


The child will be introduced to numerals, concept of colours and shapes.

Dates to Remember:






Ice-cream Sandwich Day

Class activity


Independence Day

Students to wear clothes that depicit the tricolor


Raksha Bandhan Celebration

Class activity.


Janmashtmi Celebration

Students to come dressed in traditional wear.


Red Day

Students to wear red coloured clothes and bring a well labeled red object for the show and tell activity.

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

At Home You Can:

Support your child’s learning by browsing nature magazines, books, encyclopedias or the internet for pictures of different animals. A visit to the zoo/wildlife sanctuaries is also recommended.

Web resource links that can help you in your venture include

Learn about animals

Let's go to the zoo

As this month is full of festival celebrations you could discuss the importance of each festival. Children will be exposed to the significance of each festival in an age appropriate manner in school.

Looking forward to an eventful month of learning and celebrations.

Our Best,

Authorized Personnel
