Educational Visit & Parent Engagement: It’s all about Superheroes!
As a part of the IEYC Unit of work at Inspire International Pre-Primary School, where children are exploring the world of superheroes through the IEYC unit of work, ‘To the Rescue’ in a fun way learnt about community superheroes through superhero-city set-up role-play and circle-time activities. They extended their learning through an educational-visit to a fire-station on 12 September to understand the role of a fire-fighter, a community superhero. In amazing ways children saw a demonstration of a fire-truck in action and enjoyed hopping on to explore its different areas as guided by professionals. Learning in an actual fire-station brought warm smiles on the children’s faces and awesome learning to their minds. In order to strengthen the same, a special session was organized on 14 September at school through parent engagement in the learning process, with a talk around community superheroes. Parents from five different professions, doctor, army, police, dentist and lawyer shared their experiences with the children and answered their curious questions. Children gifted self-made thank-you cards to all expressing their gratitude towards real superheroes of the community who set an example for all to follow. It was a superb feeling to see real learning happening for every child, The IEYC Inspire way!
