The  pleasures  of  the  lands  unknown ,
Experience , imbibe and  make  them  your  own.”

In our endeavour to give a sense of excitement, learning and adventure ,a picnic for the students of class III was organized on Wednesday, 07 November 2012 at Camp NH-1 Alipur. It was a place where they stretched their mental muscles, learnt to be independent, self-reliant and to work together as a team. The rock n roll experience at camp Alipur gave everyone a chance to try out many new things. The sheer exhilaration of bridge swings, rappelling, juggling with obstacles, zorbbing   or simply having fun in learning magic tricks made their learning experience richer, joyful and rewarding leaving kids wanting for more…
The sense of time melted away as children glided in the dream world through shimmering skies infusing everything with an ethereal radiance weaving a labyrinth of wonder.  Indeed, it was classroom called nature!

ADVENTURE TRIP TO CAMP ANUBHAV-MASHOBRA

A total of 72 students along with a team of 06 teachers attended the Summer Camp at Mashobra. It was an integration of various skills where awareness and sustainability were wonderfully merged.

Looking bright in their red T-Shirts, the Dipsites embarked on their journey from New Delhi Railway Station by Kalka Shatabdi followed by a road journey down the glittering green hill slides to the camp site. The trip was coloured by the spirited enthusiasm and vigour of the students.  

Bunched into a four days schedule and spaced across throughout the day, from dawn to sunset; children saw, heard, touched and smelled the natural world like never before. It was a place where they stretched their mental muscles, learnt to be independent, self-reliant and to work together as a team.

Students juggled with obstacles in the mountains and trekked in deep jungles. The sense of time melted away as children glided in the dream world through shimmering skies infusing everything with an ethereal radiance weaving a labyrinth of wonder.  Indeed a classroom called nature!       

The rock n roll experience at camp Anubhav gave everyone a chance to try out many new things. The sheer exhilaration of bridge swings, exploring the jungle on foot, rappelling, terroline traverse or simply having fun in learning magic tricks and painting faces made their learning experience richer, joyful and rewarding leaving kids wanting for more…

To acquaint children with village life, the students went for a village study to village Seepur, wherein the villagers interacted with the urban dwellers about the rich culture and heritage of rural India.  

As the students packed their bags for the journey back home, they thanked their camp instructors for a wonderful and an enriching experience.  Our young campers finally bid adieu to Mashobra, with memorable moments engraved in their hearts as real souvenirs as if to say,

“We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of the dream,
Wandering by the sea breakers,
Sitting by desolate streams.
We are the movers and shakers
Of the world, forever it seems!!”

A RENDEZVOUS WITH THE WORLD OF PAPER QUILLING
CLASS : V

Wednesday, 16 May 2012

 

A workshop for the students of class V on ‘Paper Quilling’  was organized on Wednesday, 16 May 2012. It was conducted by Ms. Jalpa  and Mr. Rajesh Bhatia  from Oak Arts.

Paper Quilling also known as Paper Filigree dates back to 15 and 16 century. During the renaissance, French and Italian nuns and monks used quilling to decorate book covers and religious items. It is an art form that involves the use of thin strips of paper that are rolled, shaped and glued together to create designs. The paper is wound around a quill to create basic coil shapes; therefore the name ‘quilling”. From a lucrative hobby it can be used to decorate invitation cards, greeting cards, photo frames etc.

The workshop was set in motion with an interactive session on the meaning of paper quilling. The craft was demonstrated and later, each child had a hand on experience. Details of designing, rolling, joining them together, making beautiful patterns was a fascinating journey. Individual creativity and team work both formed the weft and wrap of this activity. Children created beautiful and inspiring combination of colours and patterns. They also became familiar with the characteristics and proper use of various quilling materials through using and experimenting with them.   

It was indeed a craft meet … and enriching experience, a union of intellect and creativity !!

To make the students aware of the fact that weight is a measurement of the force on an object caused by gravity, trying to pull the object down. 

Method
The moon is one-fourth of the size of the Earth and its mass is less therefore its force of gravity is less, hence astronauts seem to float between each step. The gravity on different planets is different so a person will weigh differently in outer space (it has zero gravity therefore the weight is zero) and on Jupiter. (its gravity is 2.36 times of Earth’s gravity, hence we will weigh 2.36 times more than our weight on the earth).

Children will tabulate their weight on different planets and find out where they would weigh the most or the least.  

To learn about the Phases of the Moon

Aim / Objectives
We see the changing shapes of the moon in the night sky. These are called Phases of the Moon.

Name of the activity:         

  • To observe vegetative propagation in potato and colacasia.
  • To observe a fern frond. 
  • To observe external and internal structure of gram and bean seed.
  • To observe stages of germination in gram and bean seed.

Objective/Method

1. The students observed a potato, colacasia and a fern frond.

Observations were made :-

Potato and colacasia reproduce by Vegetative propagation (through body parts). The baby plant (plantlet) uses the stored food in parent plant to grow.

  • Fern is a non flowering plant and reproduces by spores. The spore bags are present on the leaf (frond) and contain spores

    2. The students were asked to bring dry and soaked gram and bean seeds and observe their external and internal structure. They identified embryo as the baby plant which grows into a new plant.
  • Various stages of germination were observed in the class in gram and bean seed. In gram seed, the cotyledons remain below the ground and in bean seed the cotyledons come above the ground. They also noted the shrinking cotyledons because the embryo used the stored food to grow.
