Class Activities

Class activities at Chapterhouse Education are full of creativity, energy and brain friendly learning. Throughout the week our teachers execute such class activities which empower children with practical exposures of learning. The objective is to incorporate an atmosphere of brain friendly learning to enhance the mental capability of students through various class activities. These class activities at at Chapterhouse Education are interesting, challenging and fun. We regularly keep on updating the class activities on our website in order to share a glimpse of latest happenings at Chapterhouse Education.

Rain Clouds in a Jar

Using shaving foam and colored water students learned how rain forms in the clouds and then as the clouds get too heavy, falls to the ground. Students from Playgroup and Nursery enjoyed the activity while students from Kindergarten and Grade 1 spent time with our STEM teachers learning about the process before putting it into action. A great learning activity and an exciting day in class View Gallery 

Shapes and Colors

Along with their letters and numbers our young Playgroup students also learn about key concepts like shapes and colors. Using arts and crafts to reinforce concepts makes sure that students retain the key elements of what they learn  View Gallery 

Nursery Paper Chain

One of the simpler STEM activities, this is a great introduction for the kids on using simple maths and engineering skills to learn and have some fun. The challenge, to make the longest chain. The students worked in groups of two under the guidance of their STEM teacher  View Gallery 

Arts and Crafts

Art is a great way to get children to collaborate while still being sage and following SOPs. Students love their art periods, it helps them exercise creativity and have fun. Over the past few weeks students have created beautiful butterflies, flying birds, Q-tip art and more  View Gallery 

Practical Science: Light and Shadow Experiment

Grade 3 was looking at Light and Shadow this week. Using practical activities students learnt about how shadows are formed, how they grow and shrink with the closeness of light sources and then a bit of fun with shadow puppets.  Overall a great way to learn about a critical concept that they will be using now and in the future.  Watch Video 

Practical Science: Baking Soda and Vinegar Experiment

Science is funny. But it can often feel boring to students inn class.  So we want to make sure that they take the time to se =e it in action and learn about it in a practical way.  Using baking soda and vinegar to inflate a balloon is a great way to introduce the idea of chemical reactions.  Watch Video 

Learning CVC Words

Learning to read is one of the most significant achievements in early learning. Using rhyming word families and consonant and vowel boards is a great way to make the learning process come alive for students. Using these boards to make and sound out the CVC words is the first step to enhancing reading skills. Nursery teachers at Chapterhouse Education conducted this brain friendly activity for learning CVC words Watch Video 

Back to School - A Glimpse of October 2020

After 6 months away, we are back and raring to go! It’s amazing to have our students back in school. Making sure we follow all SOP guidelines and more.  We are taking every precaution to make sure that our students get the full school experience in a safe and effective manner. We thought it would be tough to get our primary students back into a routine, but it’s been great to see how quickly they are adjusting. While we have to limit shared activities, they can still feel like a group and work together with small elements throughout the day. Have a look at post pandemic class activities at Chapterhouse Education  View Gallery 

First Week of Session 2020

It’s been one month since we all went into lockdown and the time has not been easy. As we do our best to work online with our students and teachers, we thought it would be a good time to look back at happier times. Let us all keep our spirits up and remember that we will get through these tough times  View Gallery 

STEM Open Day

On December 5, 2019 Chapterhouse Education played host to Grade 3 students from Moody’s Prep School for our Second Annual STEM Day. Chapterhouse students from Grades 2, 3, 4 and 5 played host to the guests and provided guidance to them during the various activities including Paper Tower Building, Marble Maze and Magic Milk Art activities  View Gallery 

Marshmallow STEM

Nursery students had a wonderful time creating marshmallow structures as part of their STEM class. These delicious structures help them learn concepts of design, building, shape, and structure in a fun and hands-on way. Here is the picture gallery of nursery students class activities at Chapterhouse Education.  View Gallery 

Grade 2 Walking Spider Art

From the very first time you hear the Little Miss Muffet poem or Itsy Bitsy Spider, they are fascinating. So Grade 2 decided to put their fascination into their art with the walking spider art  View Gallery 

Nursery Shape Art

Our low student teacher ratio of 8:1 means that the teachers can devote their time to more than just the daily learning of their 3Rs (Reading, Writing And Arithmetic). The kids spend many happy hours through the month working on multiple art projects. Some in collaboration with their teachers and others independently. Each activity is designed to educate without overwhelming. So when they learn the names of sea animals and birds, they work on crabs and bird art. When they learn about the letter “n” they work on the vocabulary words associated with the letter. The seasons come with their own tree with autumnal colors. The paper chains are a precursor STEM activity teaching collaboration and focus. View Gallery

Chapterhouse Winter Fun Fair December 2019

The Chapterhouse Funfair supported by Moody’s Prep School was a great success. It was amazing to see all the children and parents there. The Magic Show was a great hit with adults and youngsters alike and the food stalls were busy since morning. The bouncing castle (placed in the veranda because of the rain) was one of the most popular attractions for the younger kids. The skies cleared up towards the afternoon and the families spread out over our spacious play area as well. The final performance of the Magic Show was in the chilly but beautiful evening outside. We would like to thank all the teachers and staff for their efforts before, on and after the day and to all the parents and children who came and made it a great success View Gallery 

Nursery STEM Block Images

Engineering is a critical part of STEM/STEAM and blocks are just so much fun… When we put the two together for our Nursery STEM class – it was magic. Each student worked with a set of blocks to create colors and shapes to exercise their creative and engineering skills. The teachers were delighted to see the enthusiasm and the students had a ton of fun. Check out our photos for some additional images of this group View Gallery 

November Art Projects

Our low student teacher ratio of 8:1 means that the teachers can devote their time to more than just the daily learning of their 3Rs (Reading, Writing And Arithmetic). The kids spend many happy hours through the month working on multiple art projects. Some in collaboration with their teachers and others independently. Each activity is designed to educate without overwhelming. So when they learn the names of sea animals and birds, they work on crabs and bird art.

Playgroup Sink and Float

Class activities at Chapterhouse Education are based on brain friendly learning. Learning new concepts is one of the basic aspects of life at school. Understanding objects that sink and float and why that happens was a fun exercise designed to make the kids learn an important concept with a “splash” of fun. The students explore different objects in real time and see which ones will sink or float View Gallery 

Travelling Library

In spite of having a huge library in the school, the kids were extremely excited at the idea of borrowing books from the Oxford Mobile Library. The excitement in the air was palpable, each book was a treasure to be held tightly and guarded. All the students read the books during their scheduled Reading and Comprehension class and then took them home to read them to their parents. They also practiced returning the books to the library as well Thanks Oxford for this excellent initiative. We have found that the children are now even more excited for their in-house library periods View Gallery 

Nursery STEM Paper Chains

In this STEM activity students of Nursery worked together to see which group could create the longest paper chain. A great ice-breaker when done at the beginning of the year, doing it in the middle of the year means we can see how far students have come in terms of their ability to analyze a problem, work together to find a solution and plan before acting. A great way to build communication skills, making sure that even the quietest students find their moment in the sun View Gallery 

A Day In The Life

Lots of different activities happen across the different classes on a daily basis. This particular set has art activities, free play with blocks, nap time, computer class, birthday parties, a visit to a mobile library from Oxford Press (something the children enjoyed even though we have a bigger one in the school) View Gallery 

Iqbal Day and Rabil Ul Awwal 2019

Celebration of important events is one of the key parts of class activities at Chapterhouse Education. Key days through the year are celebrated and remembered.  This year our students made an extra effort on 12th Rabi-Ul-Awal and Iqbal Day View Gallery

Building A Rain Shelter

STEM projects are designed to encourage creative thinking and an interest in areas of science, engineering and more. And that’s where the challenging part of class activities at Chapterhouse Education comes in. And that’s even more fun for the students as they enjoy such activities a lot more. The “Rain Shelter” project was one of our favourites of the year so far. Class activities at Chapterhouse Education make full use of STEM to incorporate brain friendly learning. Focusing on our Nursery students, the aim was to design a waterproof rain shelter for their favorite character. Each group was given the same set of starting resources. The end result was amazing. Each group (with a little guidance) managed to create their own version of the shelter. Some with elaborate out-buildings and towers, others with a simple, practical design. Overall the session was a great success with all the students delighted with their results. View Gallery 

Senior STEM Paper Maze

Students from Grade 2 and Grade 3 were given the engineering challenge of creating a paper maze. The maze had to be clear enough to be navigable with a series of marbles but not too simple. Two teams were formed and the results were fun to watch View Gallery 

Pendulum Painting

Another STEM adventure with Pendulum Painting, one that combines art and science to deliver a great learning experience. Pendulums introduce kids to the concepts of gravity, force and resistance – all critical elements in building a solid foundation for scientific learning. When you add a cup full of colour to the pendulum, ART emerges View Gallery 

Assembly

Building the confidence of our youngsters is a critical part of the school day. Assembly is a great way of doing that. The younger children start with poems and songs, performing as a group until they feel confident enough to stand in front of the school. The pace of the process is based on the individual child, some jump into it with both feet, others need a bit of coaxing. Our aim is to create a sense of self assurance within each and everyone of them View Gallery 

Mothers Day 2019

Mothers Day is always special and the kids went all out this year. Each class wanted to make a different card and everyone took part in the actually creation of the card. It was a great way of saying Thank You to their amazing Moms View Gallery 

Playgroup Earth Art

During the first term the students worked on a few different art projects, but their favorite take homes were the Earth Day focused palm print and the Elephant with the moving trunk. The logic of their choices was theirs alone:) And then of course we had the joint birthday party for our two adorable brothers. We are looking forward to seeing what the new term has in store for them. View Gallery 

Ooblek

 Ooblek is a fascinating substance for the kids to play with. With properties of a liquid when left alone and a solid under pressure, Ooblek lets them experience different states of matter and have fun with the experience. Our Playgroup and Nursery students enjoyed getting their hands messy. In the end, the smiles say it all View Gallery

Arts and Crafts

Albert Einstein once said “Creativity is contagious, pass it on”. When students work on art projects, whether painting, crafts or Origami projects, they engage a different part of their consciousness. It encourages them to open up and let their ideas flow. Just like STEM, Music, and Computers, ART helps students explore a different side of their nature while having a lot of fun. The smiles say it all! View Gallery

Playgroup And The Interactive Board

Interactive board games work to reinforce alphabetical and numerical concepts in Playgroup and beyond. Using multiple techniques enables children to access different parts of their brain for learning and memory View Gallery

Nursery Class - Rain Cloud Experiment

We have been having a lot of fun with our STEM classes over the last few weeks. These classes are designed to introduce and reinforce concepts of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths for our students. Recent activities have included the “Rainbow Jar” which is a great way to learn about the varying densities of liquids in a fun and engaging manner. Other recent activities included learning about simple Engineering principles by building the “Tallest Tower”. And then using a combination of Science, Engineering and Maths to create the “Parachute Egg Drop. By introducing the concepts of gravity, density and measurement in a practical way, children open up to new ideas and ways of putting their imagination to work. View Gallery

Little Chef Day

The Chapterhouse team was delighted to organize a Little Chef activity at school today. It gave them a chance to experience what goes into making a meal, practice a little maths in measuring and adding ingredients, explore their senses, boost their confidence and above all HAVE FUN! A huge thank you to all our teachers who put this event together and provided the supplies. We’ve already had some requests for an encore so, watch this space for our next special event. View Gallery

Introduction to Robotics

Coding and Robotics are a critical aspect of early childhood education today BUT it is essential that it is introduced in the right way. We use internationally recognized and accepted tools and methodologies to introduce these complex concepts to children in a fun, interactive and entertaining way. View Gallery

Color Day - December 31, 2018

Chapterhouse Education decided to bid farewell to 2018 in style with a Colour Day and a school treat. There were games, singing classes, new year card making a lot of other fun activities. The morning wrapped up with some yummy kids meals from McDonalds (complete with mini-toys). A fun day for the children and the staff.  View Gallery

First Music Class

Music is often called food for the soul. But beyond that it boosts creativity, helps confidence and helps children be their best selves. That is why we have launched regular music and singing classes for our students. In accordance with our strategy of brain friendly learning, music provides one more path for children to engage with the world around them and learn in a way that is fast and fun  View Gallery

ESL

Exercises in Practical Life and Sensorial Exercises help children learn to perform daily tasks, control their movement, enhance concentration and improve hand-eye coordination. Sensorial activities help children connect with abstract concepts like numbers, sizes and dimensions and learn to differentiate between them View Gallery

Simon Says

Introducing a game that’s old but still gold – “Simon Says…” by listening to directions, and verbal cues, children learn impulse control, how to follow direction, get some exercise s and most importantly have a lot of fun View Gallery

Color Game

The process of recognizing and remembering the names of colors is an important learning element for our Playgroup youngsters. The process is introduced in class using common objects around them. But the best reinforcement often comes when they are having fun. That is why our teachers introduced the Color Game. Different groups of kids race each other to find, match and place similar colors together. The kids enjoy the competition and the positive reinforcement – and the teachers get to see the effectiveness of the learning process View details

Colors Experiment

For the first Parent Teacher Meeting on June 4, some of our senior students wanted to conduct an experiment with primary and secondary colors for class. A little bit of stage fright for the narration but overall a successful experiment. They are really looking forward to their performance on Monday. View details
