Today we had community cooking in Junior School. One of our parent Mrs. Kirti Agrawal (Mother of Dhriti Agrawal – Grade one) conducted this session. Students and educators helped her in preparing corn bhel. Students learned many new things like the peeling of boiled corn, boiled potatoes, coriander and chopping of vegetables followed by the mixing of spices in proper proportion to give it yummy taste. Later they enjoyed eating tasty corn bhel. They were extremely excited after eating corn bhel made by them. We want to thank Mrs. Agrawal for coming up with such a great idea and making it a delightful day for the children.
Hereby, we invite all the parents from our parent community to take part in community cooking at Gyankriti. If you are interested kindly drop us an email. We will discuss the process in detail with you.
Please note: Parents can also take variety of sessions for students ranging from Art workshop to sports, educational trips to showcasing their literary works, story writing session to puppet show. It can be anything which can give exposure to our students outside the regular classroom setup.
Philately is the study of stamps and postal history and other related
items. It also refers to the collection, appreciation and research
activities on stamps and other philatelic products. Junior School
students visited the Indore GPO
and met the in-charge of philatelic bureau, Ms. Kamla Khatwani. She
showed us various stamps in the collection of GPO and formally announced
the launch of Gyankriti’s Philatelic Club. We will dedicate an
entire wall at Gyankriti for showcasing the stamps issued by post
office, in the hope that it will be an excellent way for students to
learn about historical events.
We also gifted each student a specially printed stamp with Gyankriti
logo and an envelope. They will use it to complete a homework assignment
where they are supposed to send a letter to any of their friends or
It is also possible to develop philately as a hobby
for your children. It is a very easy and simple process. You just need
to open a ‘philatelic-deposit-account’ at the GPO and they will send you
a copy of all the latest stamps issued by the Dept. of posts.
You can also get customized My Stamps with photos of your child or a family photo.
Contact Ms. Khatwani at the GPO for availing these facilities.
Following students participated in the poem and story recitation day. All the participants will get a certificate of appreciation at the Yearly Award Ceremony (25th February 2018). List of participants:
Thank you all the parents and students for participation we appreciate your efforts!
Learning Basics of Coding – Junior School
Grade 1 students were exposed to computer coding with the help of a game. The students were supposed to act like a robot which follows does a particular task whenever some command is typed in the system. The lesson plan and photographs of the activity are given here for details:
Understanding how robotic instructions are given
Ask children to use instructions for routine works like – go ten steps in forward direction, take a left turn, e.t.c
Make syntax for each instruction
Moving forward A steps – walk(A)
Left turn – turn(L)
Right turn – turn(R)
Moving backward B steps – walkback(B)
Work in teams of two to write an algorithm to make a square of 5 steps size
Teacher will make turtle outputs for each of the answer
Correct answer should look like
Discuss if any other algorithm is possible.
Using FOR loop
Give some situations where similar types of instructions are repeated.
This repeats the code 5 times.
Ask students to make new code for making a 5 step square using FOR loop
Write code for making shapes in groups of 3/4 students :
