“There’s nothing like unrequited love to take all the taste out of a peanut butter SANDWICH.”
To relish the taste of peanut butter and to assist children improve their English language skills Peanut Butter Lover’s Day was celebrated on 1st March, 2017 in the Kindergarten wing of the Pre Primary. It was organized to emphasize on eating healthy food and at the same time encouraging children to speak in proper sentences themselves thus improving their spoken English. The teachers and the children wore the chef caps and aprons and started with their healthy yet flavoured food recipes by spooning out some ‘Crunchy’ for a snack or ‘Spready’ over a slice of bread to make apples and mixed vegetables sandwiches, coconut peanut butter energy rolls etc. with delicious ideas using English language as the medium of all interactions. At the same time the children were told how this peanut is found in 90% of the homes around the world having no artificial sweetness or preservatives. It contains more than 30 essential nutrients, flourishes underground and is also sometimes called groundnut. It is raw or roasted peanuts that have been ground to form a smooth paste. Their oils are released, resulting in luscious butter and spread we all love. The teachers and the kids got involved in the process and came up with their culinary experience and had a gala time. The kids were excited and happy while doing the activity and shared their natural love for spreadable, nutty goodness – Happy Peanut Butter Lover’s Day.
CELEBRATING FAMILY SOLIDARITY DAY Pre-Primary, CMS, Gomti Nagar-2 Bringing School and Home Together
Young children are concrete thinkers. It’s hard for them to understand a concept that can’t be represented. Keeping this in mind and to provide a wonderful opportunity to show appreciation for people we love Pre Primary celebrated ‘Family Solidarity Day’ on 14th February, 2017 under the able guidance of Sr. Principal, Ms. M. Batra and Principal Ms. S. Banerjee where the three generations viz. grandparents, parents and children’s strong bond of love was showcased, through a collective activity - ‘OUR EXTENDED FAMILY SOLIDARITY TREE’. Grandparents, parents, principals and teachers wrote beautiful messages for their families, school and children on leaf cutouts along with photographs and created the family tree. Children learnt to express love in ways that transcend materialism and were happy to learn about the world they live in as well as the extended family they belong to. Visiting grandparents became the ‘GRANDFRIENDS’ of all those children whose grandparents could not come. It made all remember that as parents we transmit values to our children through our behaviour. Grandparents, parents and teachers set up an example of family solidarity as the role models of our tiny tots. It was a great day. For the little ones and their gratitude can be expressed in the following words – ‘If we are jewels you are the deep sea from which we originate.’
