P1- Visit to Lodhi Gardens, New Delhi

Exploring and observing makes learning not only concrete but develops interest. Keeping the same objective in mind, a picnic was organised for the students of Class P1 to the Lodhi Gardens, New Delhi. The park spreads over 90 acres and contains, Mohammed Shah’s Tomb, Tomb of Sikandar Lodhi , Gumbad and Bara Gumbad, architectural works of the 15th century designed by the Lodhis . The children spent a substantial time gazing and were thrilled to watch the tranquil beauty

The most splendid aspect of the visit was the beautiful and well maintained green areas, full of flowers.The students enjoyed playing games such as – dumb charades, instruction game, etc. and also had fun sharing their snacks with each other.

The visit indeed was a worthwhile one.

P2- Visit to Nehru Park, Chanakyapuri

A field trip was organised for the students of Class P2 to Nehru Park, Chanakyapuri,New Delhi. This park established in 1969 , named after India’s first Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru spreads over an area of 80 acres close to the heart of the city.

The children hugely enjoyed walking through the lush green fields, treading on the aisles covered with flowers on both the sides. Many birds could be seen chirping and tweeting and the fragrance of the flowers lent a sweet charm to the whole atmosphere. The visit to the park was really refreshing and educative. All chose a place to sit , where they relished their snacks with each other and talked about the beautiful Spring day.

Students played “Chain Tag” learning the value that when we are united we are stronger. They loved spending their day in the company of nature and will surely reminisce about this wonderful trip.

Children were given a worksheet to recapitulate what they had learned in their respective trips. They also wrote about their experience and supplemented it with suitable drawings.
