The education of students at DelhiSchoolof Excellence Attapur is enriched with the real life activities that link up the classroom learnings with the outside world around them. The little children are taught to be conscious of the external influences apart from their home and school.
A field trip to Balaji Super Market was arranged for grade 1. This trip was a boosting venture that gave them practical knowledge of “shopping” which was otherwise just an English lesson for them. In the first place, they acquired skills of manners and etiquette while interacting with the staff of the market. They learned to clearly identify the different sections of food items as well as other household items. It was a superb experience for the teachers to see their students correctly differentiating between the junk food and the healthy food and proudly recalling what was taught in class. They were excited to know about the health benefits of consuming things. They perfectly grasped the procedure of buying and selling. They were asked to bring a small amount of money with which they could have a real experience in purchasing items from a market. At the end, the billing section, where the cash transactions were done, sparkled up their faces, where they came across their very own “adding up numbers”.
Altogether, it was a day of observing, learning, knowledge application, and exceeding enjoyment for the children.
