Our Grade 6 International Programme students headed to Delhi on Tuesday for their five day/ four night learning experience – KHOJ! The excitement of the first day and night out with their friends was very evident in all the Grade 6 children the whole day.
Day 1 was an engaging day, exploring Central Delhi with a focus on the British impact on the architecture, market places and food. Students first played ice-breaker games at India Gate, and then observed the surroundings at India Gate, reflecting on the questions of British impact given in their KHOJ journal.
Post lunch, students embarked on another exploration of the British impact in Delhi by studying Connaught Place inner circle, and also took this opportunity to taste the cookies and munchies from Wenger’s.
Heritage Grade 6 students are working in study groups throughout the day and capturing their observations in designated digital devices to document their learning. In the evening, students discussed a good example of digital recording by viewing a prototype from one of the groups, and learned how to improve their digital documentation skills.
After students self-reflected on their day’s learning in their KHOJ journal, discussed their observations in study groups and presented the same to the larger group, the students were finally off to bed. At the end of the day, each child was carrying a beaming self, with a sense of responsibility and duty towards both themselves and their peers.
