English and Hindi Week Class I

Language is the mirror of the soul, a reflection of life into which thoughts run and out of which they grow.
The English and Hindi Week, organized by Lotus Valley International School from 20th July to 24th July, 2015 was an endeavor to foster ingenuity and to instill a love for both the languages. The five day extravaganza was a remarkable journey into the world of fantasy and adventure giving wings to dreams and expression to individuality. A variety of activities and competitions were organized to explore the various nuances of the languages and to hone the reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills of the children.
Day 1 was inaugurated with great aplomb and gusto with the ‘Word-o-Mania’ activity. Aimed at enhancing the vocabulary and linguistic skills of the children, the activity was a classic combination of learning and fun. The tongue twisters had the children almost jumping out of their seats in excitement and their happy laughter made the day.
To inspire teamwork and to build up the children’s word power, the ‘Wordplay’ activity was organized on Day 2. Children had a gala time looking for their ‘rhyming mates’. What better way to reinforce grammatical concepts! The young audience’s excitement was palpable as they waited in anticipation for the story narration activity - ‘Once Upon a Time, Hey it’s Story Time’ to begin. An extremely gifted story teller, Mrs. Rashmi Jauhar took the children on a fun filled foray to the land of dreams and adventure.
Day 3 was marked by the English Recitation competition - ‘Rhythm and Rhyme, it’s Poetry Time’. The audience was awed by the flawless rendition of our young performers. Replete with expression and emotion it was indeed a spellbinding experience.
To hone and strengthen the listening skills of the students, the ‘Chitra Nirman’ activity was conducted on Day 4. A short story with funny and interesting twists and turns was read out. The children really enjoyed the activity as they listened carefully and drew a picture based on the story. The ‘Shabd Ladi’ activity was an exciting and creative way to reinforce spellings.
Day 5 was an interesting combination of vocabulary building and spellings, an apt conclusion to the English and Hindi Week. The ‘Shabd Jaal Bune’ competition had the children don their thinking caps and showcase their observation and lexical skills. It was heartening to see them work with such focus and concentration - each trying to make more words than the other.
We are proud of our young learners for participating with great zeal and commitment and thankful to our dear parents for their support and cooperation in making the English and Hindi Week a grand success.
