“Perspective -What you see depends not only on what you look at but also on where you look from.”
CPS Global school Thirumazhisai, always is open to new and exciting methods of learning and teaching. We understand and appreciate the different perspectives of individual students and work towards honing their unique skills and help them develop new ones. Melange 2021 was organised on the 8th and 9th of January 2021 to showcase the students’ journey of learning to the parent community. This also marks two years of interdisciplinary approach to learning at CPS Global Thirumazhisai. We have received an astounding response from the parent community.
Interdisciplinary is an exemplary platform that gives the freedom to learn about a topic by integrating two or more academic disciplines. It is an activity-based system of learning and thrives on real life situations, where students apply learned concepts in their day-to-day activities. The month of December was a whirlwind of Interdisciplinary activities for our Primary grades. They were meticulously planned by our primary teachers keeping in mind the age of our learners and the limited resources available in the current scenario. Each class worked on two topics which integrated all the subjects. The students of CAIE 1 and 2 came up with mind-blowing activities like puppet show, shadow show, origami, extra ordinary art work, debates and lots of innovative experiments related to their topics assisted by their subject teachers. Our students enjoyed the interdisciplinary way of learning and shared their experiences with the audience. It was heart-warming to hear our CAIE1 and 2 learners speak confidently and with great clarity about their interdisciplinary experiences.
Event Day 2
Our CAIE 3 students were extremely delighted to do the interdisciplinary activities and it was evident from their news casting videos and the data collection done for the same. CAIE 4 students learnt to tell Time in their respective second languages. They used their acquired knowledge of time concept to perform a roleplay where they depicted themselves as the characters. Students were thrilled to make their face masks under the guidance of the art teacher and they used it effectively in their play, Goldilocks and The Three Bears. The shadow puppet show was a class apart! CAIE 5 students teamed up and beavered away on their skit and presented it with fervour and it was a pleasure to witness their work. Students meticulously prepared and executed their debating activity, their heated argument set the virtual stage ablaze. The integration of subjects encouraged students to develop an attitude of research mindedness and qualities of critical thinking.The parents’ contribution in making this a grand success needs a special mention.
The momentous occasion of ‘Melange’ marked a significant milestone in student’s learning process.
