Gajera Vidyabhavan Sachin celebrated world Animal Day on 4th October 2021, (Monday). Because of this pandemic we celebrated it virtually. Our educator explained to their learners about the wild animals, domestic animals and pet animals. Our educator also explained to the learners that how we can take care of our pet animals at home . We need to be kind and polite towards the animals. We need to provide the food to the street animals also and never tease or bother any animals .
They also explained that , Why and how they look after and respect all animals from the tiniest worm to pets ,wild animals and biggest whale in the sea..and how to look after them and keep them safe.
The important discussion we had with the children helped them to learn about respecting the world around them and the creatures in it as well as each other. This gives our children the opportunity to further understand the world, it is an essential part of out Personal, Social and Emotional Development curriculum and our Right Respecting School curriculum too. The discussion also gave our children the opportunity to do their 'good talking' about their experiences with animals at home such as pets or animals that they see in the garden or out and about in the community, supporting their language and communication development.
Our school also arrange "Role Play" competition for our tiny tods. The theme of this competition is 'My Favourite Animal ' . Students participated very well and gave information about their favourite animals .They also dressed up like animals.
