Math We were introduced to MYP concepts such as global context, key Concepts and related Concepts. We also explored math command terms. We did skill based activities in geometry, order of operations and word problems to prepare for the bench marking assessment. We started our new unit on number systems exploring complex word problems on the four operations of mathematics. We attempted our first formative assessment on the unit and it was challenging and fun too.

Language and Literature As outlined in the curriculum we began this week with introduction to rhetorical triangle and to reinforce the same we identified  speaker, purpose and audience of an article in a newspaper. In an extensive discussion we compared diary entry and diary logs. To enrich our vocabulary we chose a few phrases from the comprehension passage and practised their usage by making sentences. We were also familiarized with the assessment criterion A for our forthcoming formative assessment.

We analyzed our work to discover the ATL skills used. We then had activities to enhance our knowledge of ‘Primary’ and ‘Secondary’ sources with the help of videos and newspaper articles. We delved deeper by creating a timeline of our personal history. We also read and annotated the second chapter of the textbook ‘A New Life’ to broaden our understanding of the Paleolithic Age.

Physics: A few weeks ago, we started with our unit ‘ life on scales’. We did an activity wherein we used our body parts (hand span, foot) to measure objects inside the class like the whiteboard, cupboards, bulletin boards etc. We found that the measurement taken by us was different from our friends. In the next class, we did a follow-up activity and also wrote a reflection on the activity .

Design and Technology This week in product design we saw a video called- Martha Speaks -Martha’s doghouse in which kids about our age go about solving a real-life problem by designing a doghouse. It gave us an insight into the different steps involved in designing a product but in a fun way. We reflected on the challenges and the mistakes that the young designers made in the process. Our discussion made us realize that while designing it is important to follow the design cycle. We are now beginning to understand the first step -inquiring and analyzing. By:Aditri Zutshi  MYP1A
ICT We brainstormed individually on the game that we would design and identify the client for the same. We identified different elements in a game using the software.  We will now work on Scratch to acquire the skills required for our product.

Spanish  We started our  unit by doing a group activity to create a “Statement of inquiry” for our new unit based on our own understanding. Every group came up with an interesting SOI in which we tried to understand each other’s perspective. Then we learnt to introduce ourselves in Spanish with the help of a conversation. Later, we watched an interesting Youtube video based on the vocabulary for the family members in Spanish. By: Eva Sadhvani MYP1A

Dance We were divided into groups and each one created a story with sketches and drawings.The stories were interchanged, we made our own interpretation  and expressed it through movements.We could draw relations as to how early man was inspired by cave paintings which lead to creation of dance movements.We understood that detailing and specification in instructions could minimize the change in movements with passing time and thus classical forms evolved
