X Why Z

This is an innovative and exciting session which adds to the list of creative activities happening at ATS Valley School. It plays a very significant and effective role in the upbringing of the kids studying in
the school. The basic premise of this activity is that every class from Grade 1 on wards has to give a question to their respective class teachers. The question has to begin with the word 'Why'. The purpose of this exercise is:

i) to help develop curiosity in the child.
ii) to encourage the child to learn more by asking questions.
iii) to help develop their research and reasoning skills.
iv) to help boost the confidence of the child.
v) to make stronger the bond between the teacher and the child.
vi) to encourage the child to become observant.

Every student is provided an opportunity to submit his or her question. This activity is done on a daily basis. Each child brings a question on rotation basis and this question is displayed on the notice board the whole day.

At the end of the day, the teachers gather in the library to hold an interactive X-Why-Z session. The 'question of the day' from each class is discussed and an appropriate answer is figured out. The very next
day, a rigorous discussion between the students and their respective class teachers takes place and the answers are explained. This innovative method of spreading knowledge not only benefits our students
and staff members but also the parents and friends of the students.

Please note that the rationale behind choosing one question for the website out of all the questions asked is that question which is based on a child's observation and not the question which is being taken out of a book/encyclopedia.
