Day 3: Feb 5, 2020
It was so nice to read about your musical play - Theseus and Minotaur. We imagined how the play would have been after reading your post. Our teacher is going to tell us more about Greek tales. Could you please share some photos of the play? We have never performed any musical play in school. We will surely do it some day.
Today, we are sharing some exciting learning’s from our Science class.
Our science teacher- Manisha didi introduced us to different types of fabrics - natural and man-made. Every state in India has a speciality in a fabric. She got different fabrics to the class - cotton, silk, rayon, etc. India is famous for different fabrics - Paithani, Chanderi, Bandhani, Chikankari, Ikkat, Kasavu, etc. Most of the traditional attire that Indian women wear belong to these fabrics.
We enjoyed this class a lot. We worked in groups to explore the fabrics and their feel. We had to read the information about the fabric and write it’s speciality.
Have you seen any of these attire in your country?

Did you watch our school’s video? We are sure you all liked our school. All of us are excited to share a lot of photos of our school and classroom.
We read your introduction. We are happy to have new friends and we told our parents about it.
Did you see our class photo? This is our Grade 4 class.
There are 36 students in our class. Our class is very clean because we do not make it dirty and we throw the trash in the dustbin. Our teachers also remind us that the school and the class should be clean. Grade 4 is the cleanest class in school.
We say "Didi" to our teachers and we have two advisors for each class. Our advisors are Snehal Didi and Urmila Didi. ‘Didi’ means sister and ‘Bhaiyya’ means brother. Our advisors visit every student house to know more about our parents and our routine at home. Do your teachers visit your home?
We have four houses in school - Garnet (Red), Sapphire(Blue), Topaz (Yellow) and Jasper (Green). We conduct assembly housewise and we also do a lot of other activities during assembly like role play, poem recitation, sharing facts and news. How is the assembly in your school?
We have English, Math, Science, History, Marathi, Hindi, Computer, Art and Physical Education. We have a Library and a Sports room. We have reading programs such as - Guided reading, Echo reading and Leveled Reading Program.
