Mathematics is the cradle of all inventions, without which the world will cease to move. Even insects use math in their day to day life for survival, like snails make their shells, spider design their webs, bees build their comb. Every individual has the potential to be a great mathematician if one has the inclination and right opportunities to explore, understand and appreciate the beauty of the subject. The students of grade V were given such an opportunity to compete in a competition titled Math-ter-pieces to test their reasoning, analytical and logical thinking. The students exhibited excellent speed and accuracy as they raced through various rounds of engaging and challenging questions. The competition stimulated an enthusiasm and love for mathematics.

They also brought out the counter effects of using technology for destructive purposes and also elaborated on the misuse of gadgets . The primary element of enjoying everything that is natural has taken a back seat as man has become more and more dependent on machines than on human relationships. The debate concluded with a very profound thought that it is not inventions or technology that is doing the harm to the society but it is the very people who misuse it for malicious deeds.

Caring for the needs of other living things make the children think about others beyond themselves. The children of PP2 and PP3 enjoyed week long learning about “Plant life”. The children enjoyed sowing seeds in a cup of soil. They learnt about the wonder of seeds, the tender growth of stem, new roots and the need of water for plants to grow. The children were excited about the day to day growth of their dear little plant which they proudly carried home at the end of the week. The children also enjoyed sowing seeds around their favourite tree friend Mr. Shade.
