Grade 6 students at BD Somani have taken their Greek History outside the textbook and given it a modern spin! It was a mixture of History, Art, Music & Drama integration through an enthralling series of Greek Mythological plays & Art Exhibits.

Sharing some Reflections of the Students.

Greek mythology has always been a big part of my life. Inspired by one of my favorite books, Percy Jackson, I began immersing myself in it. Besides my love for Greek mythology, I also love art. Bringing them together just made it better. Although I didn’t act in the play, I am very content, since I had the opportunity to participate in a creative way, through the designing of props. Working alongside my friends only made it better. I hope to be able to do more interdisciplinary projects in which I can explore topics I love and /or consider interesting.

Sanna Adukia, Grade 6A

We had the opportunity to perform in a Greek play in drama class and for that we needed props. All props used were handmade by us, students. Being given the opportunity to work on the props for our own play was surely amazing. At first, we had to research a bit on Greek jewelry for inspiration. Once we got the gist of ancient art we had an amazing time exploring our artistic skills. The process was really interesting throughout as we learned about Greek art and how to make 3D jewelry with measurements. We made Greek crowns and tiaras with various designs matching the Greek hand armor. Overall, we were really fortunate to have this opportunity to express our creative side through the props.

Reflections on Tree Plantation

The climate is changing and B.D. Somani students want to put their best foot forward to combat its dangers. The EMERALD sustainable foundation, CPRA, and MCGM Corporator, Ms. Harshita Narwekar, organised a tree plantation drive on the 5th of June 2022 – World Environment Day at CPRA Greens garden. Manshika and Lahar from Grade 11 and Mr. Siddhesh volunteered to highlight that small endeavours are the stepping stones to fighting against the environmental challenges we all face.

“Mellontikos Technologia – The Future Technology,” May 2022

In May, we had our first Design and Technology exhibition at the D & T Lab called ‘Mellontikos Technologia – The Future Technology’. Our MS students displayed their work, and were wholeheartedly appreciated by parents and fifth graders who came to the exhibit. We look forward to hosting many such D & T exhibitions, showcasing our students’ exceptional talents, and boosting confidence in their innovative ideas.

Grade 6 students making learning authentic

At B.D. Somani, we are staunch believers in Project Based Learning. Recently, our 6th grade students went on a museum trip, and used it as inspiration to propose business ideas, create artworks, and write magazine articles. Students summarised their 4-week long research project with presentations to panelists from the fields of Education, History, Art, Business, Investment Banking, and Startups. Curiosity, Collaboration & Courage shaped their ideas and propelled their activities, as they always do in our school.
