Field trip to Asha Bhavan

Our PYP learners gained a deeper understanding of the value of companionship, the importance of respectful communication, and the significance of cherishing every phase of life at their recent fieldtrip. On the other hand, the children’s presence brought a renewed sense of purpose and connection to the residents of Asha Bhavan.

The children showcased their talents through performances like singing, dancing, role play to name a few. The residents, in turn, shared cherished memories and life experiences that resonated deeply with the students.

Insights into IB PYP

To provide parents with a firsthand experience of IB in our teaching and learning, we had a ‘key concept charades game’ led by our learners at PPC. In this interactive session learners came up with some actions for the chosen key concepts that had to be guessed by the parents by asking higher order and lower order questions. Through this engaging session parents got an overview of the key concepts questions and understood how important role they play to initiate discussions in an inquiry based classroom.

The Debate on ATL Skills was a hit in every classroom. It allowed parents to participate enthusiastically in discussing the relevance of each ATL skills in their child’s learning journey. It also provided students and parents with an opportunity to experience different perspectives on ATL. Parents had a detail and clear understanding of each ATL and understood the importance of these skills leading to holistic development of the child.

Boosting Brainpower and Concentration!

Brain Gym exercises at Oakridge are ingeniously crafted to bridge the gap between the right and left hemispheres of the brain, ultimately enhancing its overall functionality. These exercises are rooted in the notion that simple physical activities can promote increased blood flow to the brain, leading to enhanced learning processes. Our EYP learners engage in holistic brain learning, unlocking new pathways to cognitive development.

Brain Gym exercises work wonders in nurturing academic skills such as reading, writing, spelling, handwriting, comprehension, and math. Additionally, they play a crucial role in fine and gross motor skill development during the early years.
