|Language andLiterature||As outlined in the curriculum we began this week with introduction to rhetorical triangle and to reinforce the same we identified speaker, purpose and audience of an article in a newspaper. In an extensive discussion we compared diary entry and diary logs. To enrich our vocabulary we chose a few phrases from the comprehension passage and practiced their usage by making sentences with the same. We started analyzing different sentences from newspaper articles to recapitulate tenses used in our communication. We were also familiarized with the assessment criterion A for our forthcoming formative assessment |

We learnt to find the least count of measuring cylinder, ruler and laboratory thermometer. We did an activity to find out the temperature of hot and cold water using laboratory thermometer. |
Physics: A few weeks ago, we started with our unit‘ life on scales’. We did an activity wherein we used our body parts (handspan, foot) to measure objects inside the class like the whiteboard, cupboards, bulletin boards etc. We found that the measurement taken by us was different from our friends. In the next class, we did a follow-up activity and also wrote a reflection on the activity .

|Design and Technology||This week in product design we saw a video called- Martha Speaks -Martha’s doghouse in which kids about our age go about solving a real-life problem by designing a doghouse. It gave us an insight into the different steps involved in designing a product but in a fun way. We reflected on the challenges and the mistakes that the young designers made in the process. Our discussion made us realize that while designing it is important to follow the design cycle. We are now beginning to understand the first step -inquiring and analyzing. |

Later, we watched an interesting YouTube video based on the vocabulary for the family members in Spanish. |
