With the help of videos, students planned to effectively use their ideas in the next session.

Inter House Competition – Poster Making (Grades 4-8)
Colourful, informative and attractive posters were made by grades 4-8 under the guidance of instructors. Students used various materials such as coloured sheets, threads, clothes, etc. to make posters. The uses of posters and the process of making posters were discussed before creating.
Leaf Printing (Early Years)
Early years at Ekya, Byrathi got an opportunity to learn the basic techniques of painting. They were asked to bring a few leaves of different shapes and sizes. Everyone got a chance to explore this printing technique by which they learnt about pattern and surface structure of leaves. Students also experienced the impact of applying even pressure on leaves to obtain desired prints.

Students participated enthusiastically in English language word building activities. Instructors had arranged amazing hands-on activities such as fishing words, cluttered letters (jumbled letters in a word), fill in the blanks, guess one word with the help of its description, etc.
