It was an invigorating experience for the students of class IV A to put on display their first class presentation on Thursday, July 23, 2015, in front of their parents and guardians. A short and sweet show was prepared under the able guidance of all the subject teachers, with an objective to showcase the ongoing academic activities in the classroom.
The presentation began with an introductory speech by the comperes Rohan Gupta and Raina Khan. They welcomed the guests heartily. The presentation on the core subjects began with the subject-English. The students of class IV A gave a demo on the use of the eight different parts of speech, which are vital in writing grammatically correct and readable sentences. Knowing the different parts of speech not only improves the writing skills but also enhances the communication skills.
Next was a poem recitation by all the girls. The title of the poem was “Please, thank you and pardon me.” The girls recited the poem with confidence; they gave the message of using these three magic words to express respect, consideration, civility and courtesy.
Today, saving the environment has become a survival truth and necessity. For the science presentation the children performed a skit based on the environment. They not only stressed on the fact that ‘The less we pollute the environment, the more we prevent global warming,’ but also requested the parents to join them in this drive by taking a pledge to do their bit.
The next presentation was related to Hindi where the young students used different proverbs or ‘muhaware’. These proverbs not only contain a great treasure of wisdom but also help express an idea in a better and interesting way.
For the presentation on Social Studies, the students dressed up in colourful attires, representing four different states of Northern India namely Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh. They informed the audience about the dresses, food, dance forms, languages spoken and the famous tourist places in each of these states. The act ended with a focus on India’s most important feature i.e. Unity in diversity.
Last but not the least, the students acted as quiz masters and scorers for an interactive and fun Mathematics Quiz. It was an engaging activity designed to encourage the students to learn mathematical concepts.
The programme ended with our respected Principal ma’am’s address, and interaction with the parents. Ma’am reinforced on the importance of curricular activities in developing the overall personality of the children. She also reiterated the fact that such presentations instill a sense of confidence, responsibility, teamwork in the children and assist in the internalization of concepts learnt in class.
