‘Inspiring’, ‘confident’, and ‘informative’ are just some of the words used to describe PYP 7’s brilliant exhibition. After 7 weeks of research and action, the class presented their exhibition for their fellow students and their families on the 8th and 9th of June. The exhibition is a special showcase, enabling the group in their final year of the Primary Years Programme to demonstrate the skills that they have gained.
Each student chose their own subject for their inquiry and was placed with peers with similar interests. They devised their own Central Idea and Lines of Inquiry and organised their own research. Some visited museums, others did home-cooking demonstrations, and some interviewed experts from around the world.
They also took action to make a real change in the world. This could be raising money for a relevant charity with a Bake Sale, or brightening up the local skate park. All excelled in their effort!
Everyone who saw the presentations was impressed by the depth of knowledge and understanding on show, and the interesting observations and connections made.
