7th Jan

Although the PYP Exhibition is a unit of inquiry that lasts for 6 to 7 weeks, the entire learning process is showcased on the last day. We will take up the exhibition as our fifth unit which will start in beginning of March. The presentations will be done towards the end of April. Various media like Dance, Drama, Visual Art, IT, etc. will be used.

It goes without saying that the thing the children will exercise the most on that day will be their interpersonal skills. As an effort towards preparing them for this, the Grade 5's have been subjected to various experiences. One of them was the activity we did today:

The inquiry groups were asked to go around the school asking all the teachers and some students to give them words related to their disaster. For example, the volcanoes' group asked every one to say words related to 'volcanoes'. Later, the groups made cross words using these words.

Also in Math, we did an activity using blocks to learn the meaning of Fractions.
