Sr. Kg – March & April 2017

Theme for the monthOur Solar System

Our Earth is one of the nine planets that circle the sun, making up the solar system. While children are always intrigued to know all about the planet earth, they would be equally keen to know about the solar system. Children are fascinated by the great wonder that lies beyond the sky. The twinkling stars seem to reside in a magical place that they would like to visit.

Thus, through this unit we aim to make your child understand facts on the solar system in an interesting way that would leave a long lasting impression on his/her young mind.

The main objective is to inculcate a lifelong interest and curiosity in the wonders of the universe for your child.

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


Independent writing, recapitulation of all the digraphs and tricky words: could, should, would, always, little, right.

Introduction of new tricky words: love, cover, after, every, mother, father will also be done. To reinforce the use of new vocabulary, usage of the following words will be encouraged: vacate, empty, search, and look for.


Your child will learn numerals from 1-100 with number name 20. We shall do concepts of simple addition, subtraction and shades of purple and work on his/her logical and reasoning skills.

Science experiment: Your child will learn about shadows through hands on experiments.

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 encourage your child to share their views on the stories and movies that they may have heard or seen. Ask questions and listen to him/her attentively. It will build his/her confidence and enhance his/her self-esteem. Your child’s effort needs a lot of appreciation and positive affirmations to ensure good progress.

You can expand his/her learning experience, by camping under the night sky or taking him/her for a trip to the planetarium. Even though he/she won’t understand everything, he/she will be fascinated by the magnitude and movement of the stars and constellations.
