Constructivist method of teaching lets the students to dive into the ocean of knowledge and understanding. In grade 9, for the introduction of the chapter looping and jumping statements in Java, students prepared group wise presentation. At first, they inquired and researched about the topic and prepared the presentation. Secondly they presented the same individually to the class. Last but not the least they had to conduct the cross question session to ensure the 100% understanding.
Public speaking builds up ones confidence and enhances communication skills. A mode of so is the assembly presentations by various learners from different grade levels. They perform stories, poems etc. They reflect over their units of inquiry. This enables them to project our learning methodology in IB curriculum.
We all got both LIGHT and DARK inside of us, What matters is the part we choose to act on, That’s who we really are.
Dusshera depicts the end of darkness by lighting the lamp called ‘Purity of Soul’ and it celebrates triumph of Lord Ram’s good over Ravana’s evil. The yellow flame of fire burns the ten heads of Ravana symbolising LUST, DELUSION, ANGER, GREED, PRIDE, ENVY, EGO…. Thus, the dazzles of fire leaves a beginning of truth and purity after burning the darkness in us.
Following the past traditions and hailing our cultural heritage, We at VMWC celebrated Dusshera on 17th October. There was joy, colorsand brightness with girls in Ghagra and Choli and boys in Indian formals to celebrate the bloom of spirits.
Class 11th performed Ramleela with great ardor and enthusiasm. They brought the characters back to life and we felt like a part of the epic.
Class 12th made an embodiment of Ravana and the burn down was enjoyed by the whole school. The entire school danced to the beats of folk songs carrying with them the spark to choose the righteous path.
Experiential learning in Mathematics helps children clear their basic concepts.
By this activity Students learnt to find middle term in any sequence.
They learnt about two and one middle term as if number of terms is odd then only one middle term, if number of term is even then two middle term exist in a sequence.
They learnt formula to find middle term as n/2 & (n/2 +1) if number of terms is even. Formula for middle term is (n+1)/2, if
Number of terms is odd.
Some signs that a chemical change occurred include temperature increase, spontaneous change in color after mixing compounds, a marked odor after the reaction begins, formation of a precipitate in the solution and release of bubbles. While telling the difference between a physical change and a chemical change can seem tricky at first, knowing these signs that indicate a chemical reaction has taken place can make this important scientific concept much more straightforward. Students of grade 7 were performing experiments for these chemical change to get a proper understanding about the topic.
We explore, we do, we learn and we present
We have become so used to of seeing publics spaces around us that we hardly think that which are the most important public spaces and what should be the appropriate distance between that public space and residential area.
Students of grade 2 did a unit on Public spaces and as their summative assessment designed an ideal city by keeping the most important public spaces nearest to their residential area. They also gave space to those public spaces which should be in the city but not necessarily very near to the residential area. They made models depicting the same and presented it in the class giving reasons behind their selection.
Parents of grade 4 students were given the chance to visit one of the PYP classrooms and get first hand experience of the Ib teaching pedagogy.
Some common points which they observed and appreciated in their feedback are:
- Learning environment in the class
- Students were sitting in groups because of which teacher can see all of them at one go and pay more attention to those who require.
- All the students were eager to answer the questions asked by the teacher
- All the students were happy and ready to learn
- All the students were focused.
The parents were very happy and eager for their children to get this type of education
“Sports teaches you character , it teaches you to play by the rules, it teaches you know what it feels like to win and lose- it teaches you about life”

This is what learners of Grade LKG learnt by making animals using different shapes. They not only learnt about the shapes but they also learnt how do we care for them and their needs.
Students of Grade X applied their prior knowledge to do the higher order program writing and execution of java program based on arrays and loops.
Experiential Learning for Grade XII students. They are finding the volume of solid sphere with using formula of radius and then compared this value to volume of same sphere calculated by water displacement method with help of measuring cylinder of capacity 25 ml in physics laboratory.
Students of Grade XI are having experiential learning so they did an experiment in their Chemistry Lab of titration of potassium.
