YOUNG SPORTSPERSONS NAIL AT THEIR FAVOURITE SPORTS
We at Presidium believe that games and sports are an important and essential part of a student’s life. Along with the mental development of every person, physical development is also which needs to be taken into consideration. Regular sports activities make us active and lead to good health. Presidium recently organised a couple of sports activities for the students. The event started with yoga followed by many events like races, jumps, throws, hop-skip-jump, skating, taekwondo, basketball, tennis, cricket, table tennis, and chess. The most popular were the marble-and-spoon-in-the-mouth and sack races. Flags of different colours were fluttering all around the ground. All the spectators applauded the students on their outstanding performances and wished them well as they would persist with their favourite game. We look forward to the same enthusiastic participation from all the students in the upcoming future.
PROVIDING HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE IN MATHEMATICS WITH FUN TOOLS
Presidium strongly believes that rather than making the children memorize the facts, they should be made to think and understand things and the world around them on practical basis. Students of Grade 4 and 5 were given an opportunity to learn basic Mathematical concept using Dienes Blocks which are manipulative tools to make understanding the concept better. They also used Tangrams which is an ancient Chinese art which is a reverse jigsaw puzzle. The idea is to dissemble the pieces and rearrange them in such a way as to create the desired image. We believe that tangram patterns can hold a wealth of opportunities for original and practical learning. Children also enhanced their concept of fractions by moving the fraction strips onto the canvas; they could see the differences between various denominators and integrated the concept of equivalent fractions.
STUDENTS CONDUCT SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS TO LEARN DIFFERENT CONCEPTS
Crucial to science education is hands-on involvement: showing, not just telling; real experiments and field trips and not just virtual reality. Students of Grade 6 were given various opportunities to learn and experiment. Using safe and high quality science lab equipment, they tested the presence of carbohydrates which is found in the form of starch. Recalling the Body building foods they tested the presence of protein in the food stuff. They were also made aware of the test of presence of fat in any food material. Science lab experiments promote the development of scientific thinking in students. For fostering scientific learning in early childhood, active hands-on learning is very important. And this can best be achieved through science lab experiments.
ON THE SPOT PAINTING COMPETITION:CREATING MAGIC WITH EVERY STROKE

Transformation of this quality into visual expressions by the budding artists weaving brush strokes of poetry was the aim of this endeavor.

The young participants spun magic which pulled the strings in the heart, mind and soul of the audience unleashing the forces within.
CELEBRATING THE LANGUAGE OF MUSIC & MOVEMENTS, DANCE!
Dance is the language that the body speaks. Dance is when you express yourself through body movements. Dance is when you lose yourself in the music and enjoy yourself. Dance is a beautiful form of art that helps you express yourself without saying a word. The students of Presidium School organised a vibrant assembly on 29th April on the occasion of International Dance Day. Various forms of dance were presented by the students that mesmerized all those who were a part of that assembly. All the dancers were deeply appreciated for their love and passion towards dance by our Principal Ma’am. It was a kaleidoscope of different dance forms that was witnessed to mark the event called International Dance Day.
LEARNING THE CONCEPT OF ‘BIG & SMALL’ WITH AN EXCITING ACTIVITY!
A fun lesson is used to help students understand the concept in a better way. Presidium Noida 31 apprised the children of Nursery with the difference between big and small and how to compare the two. The lesson involved Jumbo, the elephant and Mini, the mouse to make the learning fun and engaging. Using the visual children had to give all big - sized things to Jumbo and all the small sized things to Mini. At the end of the lesson students were able to compare objects or things and describe their sizes. They learnt to compare any two objects by using the vocabulary bigger and smaller for respective sizes.
PRESIDIANS ENHANCE CONCEPTS OF ENGLIGH WITH A FUN MAZE ACTIVITY!
“If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy and inspires your hopes.” We at Presidium believe that activities and practical learning help boost your child’s confidence. With the same concept in mind, students of grade Nursery took active participation in Maze activity during their English lesson. They learnt that a maze is a path, typically from an entrance to a goal. Mazes help your child to work on their executive functioning skills, such as planning and brainstorming various strategies While mazes are lots of fun and provide a sufficient challenge for students, they also teach them to control their pencil through the maze without hitting the black lines. A maze might just look like a fun way to pass time, but they’re actually a valuable learning tool for students.
CELEBRATING THE BEAUTY OF OUR PLANET ON THIS WORLD EARTH DAY!
“One of the first conditions of happiness is that the link between man and nature shall not be broken.”
With such a divine thought, students at Presidium School Noida 31 celebrated Earth Day 2019 with the whole week of energized eco-activities. They planted saplings and took an oath to conserve greenery. An assembly was also conducted to make children aware about the importance of nature. Several songs that the students had chosen as having environmental themes were sung which filled the air with enthusiasm. The whole school was filled with heart warming and ecologically poignant artworks and displays done by students of various ages over the week. Also outstanding was a video presentration showing an installation titled “Sunrise” portraying people living closely integrated with the environment. Small eco-fairies were dashing about the school ground granting good wishes for the world. It can be said that the Earth Day event had galvanized more students than any other event.
