Where we are in place and time


It's been 5 weeks since school started. The students have slowly begun to appreciate the importance of classroom rules. Within the confines of the class, a system is slowly evolving, emerging. Areas have been demarcated for specific use; walls have started telling their own tales, and student have began applying for classroom jobs!

As the students learn about history and their heritage and develop a sense of place and time, they are concurrently creating their own little niche. This present needs to be valued and cherished as much as the past.

Here is what our classroom has evolved into. Over time, we will keep recreating our classroom and I can't wait to see how it evolves.



The IB Learner Profiles in the guise of a peacock.


A cityscape representing Islamic architecture. The students used tissue paper for effect!

Setting goals is an important part of our classroom activity.


The students have began asking burning questions. We hope to find the answer to these soon.










This complex rubic was created by the grade 3s! They did a fantastic job.
The transdisciplinary nature of our curriculum. Geography and maths merge in maps.
Coordinates, and legends
Our reading tree is slowly blooming. I hope to see leaves fill up the whole board by the end of the year.




This is Charminar. The memorial by Quli Qutub Shah to commemorate the end of plague.




 

The students versions of Charminar created in our art lesson.
