Orchids The International School introduces ‘No Book Day’ to promote ‘hands-on’ activity-based learning

Posted on April 4, 2022

The leading chain of K12 schools has always made headlines for pioneering new teaching techniques for the all-round development of its students. To continue this legacy, OIS has introduced a “NO BOOK” day once a week from grades one through eight. Every Wednesday, students will be able to explore their favorite subjects through various activities. The details are as follows.

  • Languages ​​- English / Hindi / Marathi / French – hone their communication skills through activities such as elocution, drama, conversation, skits, debate, declamation, group discussion, recitation, explanation of the lesson by the pupils, etc.
  • Maths & Sciences – PBL (project-based learning) – projects and experiments to be done in groups followed by worksheets / Viva to assess individual learning achievements, worksheets to reinforce concepts, reinforcement of lessons by interesting methods .
  • EVS / Social Sciences – Experiments, role play, sketches, cartographic work depending on the topics covered

Students will be encouraged to perform different forms of activities (as mentioned above) related to the subject being taught. A regular timetable will be followed and during class periods one of the tools mentioned above will be used to facilitate learning. These tools will respond to the concept of audiovisual and kinesthetic learning.

Commenting on the initiative, Dr Kavita Nagpal, Principal Orchids The International School, Masjid Bunder said, “We are trying to break the monotony of classroom learning through these initiatives. During the lockdown, the students were confined within four walls and the gadget screens were their only window through which they saw the drastic change in their world as they knew it. It has undoubtedly affected their tender psyche and returning to pre-covid normality is not easier for them. So it’s our little effort to encourage them to open up and push them to learn by doing”
