….. and finally …… this is the FINAL blog of the school year.
It’s been a busy week finishing off our last unit. Last week students had begun an action plan as a summative assessment. This week, working individually or in small groups they developed their ideas, sought feedback, made adjustments and refined their products. This weekend will see a bake sale being hosted in Imbondeiro compound and Monday heralds a ‘Make it Bake it’ event at school during recess. We will also be sharing videos and presentations on Monday, during class time. Everyone has thrown themselves enthusiastically into taking action and are excited to share their experiences.
This week Year 6 presented their exhibition, the culmination of their learning journey through the PYP at LIS. As Year 5’s we were especially curious to see what they’d learned and how they would communicate this, as next year – that’ll be us! It was great to see Year 5 students asking so many questions and inquiring into the exhibition process. Back in class we discussed what we noticed, how we felt and what strengths we would be taking into Year 6, and what attitudes or skills we may need to work on to make our own learning journeys successful.
‘I feel a bit scared – it (the exhibition) was SO good!’
‘How will we do that?’
‘It’s a lot of work’
‘But it’s a bit like what we’re doing now. We’re doing a mini exhibition with our action!’
We decided it would be a challenge, exciting, nerve-wrecking but something we’d feel immensely proud of.
…and last, but most definitely not least!
I was incredibly touched by the champagne, chocolates, papier mâché guinea fowl, painting (the list goes on!) and the beautiful book I was given on Friday. I feel so proud of all my students, its been a fantastic year, one I’ll never forget!
Thank you 5.2 for being you! and GOOD LUCK in Year 6 xx
