MASTERING THE CONCEPT OF SERIATION THROUGH MATH GRID
Nursery students of Presidium learnt the relationship between objects on the attribute of size to develop the skill of seriation. Seriation prepares students to see order in numbers and objects thereby helping them to understand that as the number increases, the quantity and size also increases. In this activity, students were provided with a collection of concrete objects and were asked to arrange them on the basis of size in the grid made on the floor. Students were indulged in the activity thereby enhancing their gross motor, observation, comparing, visualisation skills.
STUDENTS PLAY A LITTLE CHARADES TO ENHANCE COMMUNICATION SKILLS
Communication is the foundation of relationships and is essential for learning, play and social interaction. So, Theatre is also the key to communication skills. Like all art forms, it allows students to communicate effectively and helps them understand others in a new light (empathy). To enhance their communication skills students of grade 3 participated in an activity in which ten students stood in a line facing the wall and teacher tapped the back of the last child and whispered a statement and the child standing in front of her did the action to show the said statement. Similarly every child tapped the back of the person who is standing in front of her/him and tried to repeat the exact action. At the end, last child spoke the wrong statement due to many reasons like distractions while listening, actions not appropriate etc.Theatre-based methodologies like these help children get things imprinted in their minds in an experiential pattern that lasts longer and easily supports innovation in the later stages of their lives.
PRESIDIANS EXPRESS THEIR LOVE FOR ELDERS ON SENIOR CITIZEN DAY
The World Senior Citizens Day aims to raise awareness about the factors and issues affecting older people, such as deterioration with age and to examine issues that affect their lives such as abuse of elderly people. It is also a day to recognize and appreciate the contributions that older people make to society. The reason for celebrating this day is to thank and acknowledge elders for all that they have done for their children. They sacrifice their entire life in nurturing their relationships. Such a selfless service rendered throughout their life for their family deserves some importance. That is the reason why World Senior Citizen Day was celebrated in Presidium Indirapuram by students of grade-1. They dedicated this day for the elders of their family. They took this opportunity to acknowledge their love and efforts.

They also help each other when they are in trouble or are hurt. Friends are people that can be looked up to and trusted. The strength of the bond of friendship between two people can vary. If the bond is very strong, they are called best friends. This can usually be achieved by possessing the elements of friendship, by being kind, generous, loyal, honest and by having fun.
