Learning Knitting is really a life skill. It not only engages our body but also enforces mind fullness meditation .Knitting is calming, relaxing, and keeps us centered because of its repetitive rhythmic move- ments, which can help prevent and man- age stress, pain and depression, which in turn strengthens the body’s immune sys- tem. In early 2018, a group of ladies came to- gether to channel their knitting hobby into something more focused and useful. They started a knit-a-thon exercise, aim of which is to knit a specific number of blankets and distribute them to charities worldwide that look after young children. In parallel, the group has decided to compete for the Guinness World Record for the World's largest hand-knitted blan- ket. Apart from that, this Knit-a-thon will also seek to set two new Guinness World records viz. (i) blanket with the maximum number of knitted hearts and (ii) the world's heaviest blanket. The students, parents and teachers of Dunes International School also took ini- tiative and became a part of this great world record event.

Team Building Activity Why is teamwork im- portant? It does not mean everybody can do each oth- er’s work, it is more about synergy whereby the sum is greater than the parts. If properly developed, teamwork maximizes strengths, bringing out the collective best out- comes.

Maths Finding Equivalent fraction by folding pa- pers: To become effective users of multiplication and division, students need to develop an under- standing of the role of factors in these opera- tions. The relationship between division and frac- tions is also an important one to identify. This practical activity helps students to start exploring such relationships. Prior to learning procedures for finding equivalent fractions, students should have an understanding of parts of whole, com- paring and ordering fractions and identifying and describing fractions. Students should be familiar with viewing pictorials of items divided up into equal parts and explaining how many parts are shaded in, and be able to identify equal parts of a whole. These experiences build background for the common denominator algorithm. Grade 4 students did the equivalent fraction activity by folding the paper.
