Fitness Day is the most ac- tive day of the year, when people of all ages and back- grounds come together to celebrate the fun of fitness. Buddha has rightly said, to keep the body in good health is a duty, otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear. We can maintain mental fitness by regularly ex- ercising of the mind, by reading, writing, problem solving and learning new topics. Grade 5 A students conducted a special as- sembly “Street Play on Importance of exer- cise”. Street Play is meant to have a role in social awakening and reformation. It is the best medium to interact directly with the tar- get audience for sensitizing them on a prob- lem.

The students spoke about factors hindering our health and measures to overcome these problems. The students were able to communicate in their own unique way.

\"Somebody Wanted But So Then\" (SWBST) is a strategy that supports and teaches many literary elements required by many curricula including the new learning standards. This strategy is intended to inspire stu- dents' thinking and engage them in dia- logue with the text and with each other. By incorporating many of the literary ele- ments often highlighted in isolation (i.e., setting, problem, resolution) SWBST helps students easily formulate a summary. It highlights the literary elements of charac- ter, setting, theme/plot, conflict/problem, events, resolution/conclusion, and their rela- tionships. Simultaneously, the strategy illus- trates the connections between an outline, a summary, and a retelling, showing how these three can be combined to form a five- paragraph essay. It helped students analyze the stories they read or create complete stories of their own. It provided direction for clear descriptions which enables the stu- dents to visualize what they are learning and about which they are writing. The use of visualizing and illustrating to assist in re- trieval of information and to aid compre- hension.

Flipping the classroom is a teaching method that uses active learning techniques to engage students rather than traditional lectures alone. Although there is no one way to flip, or invert, the classroom, this method typically uses more student-centered learning strategies, including discussions, problem- based learning, working in groups and instruction by peers. These techniques enable students to read, write, discuss or solve problems in ways that help sharpen their skills in analyzing, synthesizing and evaluating class content. The main objective of flipped classroom is that stu- dents have to play an active role in preparing for taking the class. It will help them to improve their creative thinking and help them to think critically. Students prepared the questions by themselves and it helped them to think, discuss, find the solu- tion and to solve the problems.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Mak- toum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Du- bai, has approved the official logo for the 'Year of Tol- erance'. The logo, which is inspired by the Ghaf, the UAE's na- tional tree, is set to be used by government, private and media entities in all campaigns, initiatives and pro- grammes launched during 2019. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed, in a tweet on the occasion, said, \"Tolerance is a universal value, and Ghaf is our authen- tic national tree, a source of life and symbol of stability in the middle of the desert, under its shadows our an- cestors gathered to consult on matters related to their daily lives. In the ‘Year of Tolerance’, we chose the Ghaf as a logo for all of us to live by the principles of tol- erance, coexistence and di- versity.\"

“Beauty is truth, truth is beauty.” Beauty is everlasting and immortal. It is art which creates beauty. An artist's imagination can create masterpieces of eternal joy. Art and craft provides children an opportunity to think imaginatively and creatively and even de- velop confidence in other subjects too. Moreover it works as a therapy that can yield lifelong ben- efits in health and well-being. Many of the motions involved in making art, such as holding a paintbrush or scribbling with a crayon, cutting straight lines with scissors are essential to the growth of fine motor skills in young children and act as pre-cursor to pre-writing skills. The stu- dents of grade 5 enthusiastically crafted their exhibits. They used descriptive words to discuss their own creations. Arts and crafts are a great way of bridging cross-curricular activities in and outside the classroom and are helpful in developing brain and cognitive faculties. It promotes and encourages individual talents and group work. We discover, nurture and sustain the creativity of our student and help them think out of the box. Art and craft are the best tools for creative think- ing. It also helped students to learn problem solving skills as they grapple with trying to create a three dimensional scene from the world around them on a two dimensional space.

As a parent, you are your child's first and most im- portant teacher. When parents and families are in- volved in their children's schools, the children do better and have better feelings about going to school. In fact, many studies show that what the family does is more important to a child's school success than how much money the family makes or how much education the parents have. Support your children's learning at home for their success. 29/09/2019 03/10/2019
