Hey Young Uns!
It’s school time again and time to catch up with friends and get back to the academic routine.
While summer holidays are fun, schooldays also offer — especially after the long pandemic shut down — excitement.
As you begin the new academic year, think of some ideas to charge you up, so that you could have an enriching year of friends, interesting activities and learning.
PW Kidzone gives you some ideas worth exploring, but we are sure you have lots more!

Pep up your class!
Get your whole class to pitch in and add a zing to each school day by starting a Bulletin Board project.
Place a bulletin board in the classroom. Each day, a different student in every class can fill it up with interesting stuff.
She could post magic tricks, interesting articles, photographs, suggestions, quotes or recipes. (This issue of PW Kidzone also tells you how you can make a bulletin board.)
The student whose turn it is should stay late the previous day or get to school early to decorate and fill the board.
The challenge is for every student to do her best to collect interesting material for the board. Students also need to write their names, and leave a white sheet of paper on the board for feedback.
One person (could be the class teacher) needs to organise this by allotting one school day to each student.
You will also need to remind the person the previous day.
Motivate your children to plunge into this project with zest, and soon you will all be looking forward to seeing what the bulletin board has to offer each morning.
Dip your hands in finger paint and make prints on white paper. Cut these out and use as decorations.
Once other classes get wind of this, they might also turn up to see what the board has to say. Try it and tell us how it goes at [email protected]
