On 2nd September 2016, students of Pallav took a short bus trip in the vicinity of the school on 2nd September in order to develop an understanding of the neighbourhood of their school. This was an Entry event to introduce the students to the theme, ‘My Neighourhood’. While travelling in the bus, they were able to identify many places, like; park, school, petrol pump, mall, banks, hospitals, market, temple, chemist etc. After coming back to school, we discussed about the importance of a neighbourhood and why is it essential to have certain places close to your house or school. The discussion was followed by asking the students to share their impressions of the visit by making illustrations and the teacher helped them with the labeling.
Overall this whole activity helped the children to understand the importance of a neighbourhood.
