Students of the primary section of SIS demonstrated this through yoga postures like tree pose (Vrikshasana) and warrior pose (Veer Bhadrasana) in the classroom. The senior students of 6-8 performed the different steps of Suryanamaskara in an elegantly coordinated manner which seemed almost like poetry in motion. Students pledged to practice more at home and keep the different chakras within the body alligned.

Sense Station Pre-Primary 2021

07 September, 2021

Pre primary children enjoyed learning about the five senses . They watched and mimicked themselves in front of the mirror with glee as they realized that we see with our eyes. They clapped loudly and softly, while listening to the instructions thus exploring the fact that we hear with our ears. They learnt how the nose is used not only for smelling , but how it also distinguishes between good smell and bad smell by smelling various objects like soap bar, a piece of onion etc. It was great fun as they discovered the sense of taste through their tongue by tasting sugar, salt and lime .Lastly, they recognized the sense of touch by feeling various objects against their skin like cotton, ice, scrubber etc .
