Grade 5 is the culminating year of our journey in PYP. PYP has been fun and full of excitement and new learning at every stage. To add to the excitement, in Grade 5, we have the PYP Exhibition that is led by the students. This is the marking of an end and a new start. It is also a transition to MYP, preparing us for what’s ahead. It teaches us to
take action. Through this process, we also display different learner profiles and ATL skills.
The process of the exhibition started with us being introduced to the UN SDG. Each one of us identified an SDG we could relate to and listed all the topics and concerns under that SDG. But more important was, how does it personally impact us and what is our personal connection to the issue? This was our main driving question. Students who could relate to the same concerns with the personal connections drawn, were grouped together. This was how the interest groups were created. This year there were 13 exhibition groups. We have been working collaboratively to create a body of knowledge, our scope of inquiry which helped us in creating our Lols, related and key concepts. Then as a class, we co-created the Central Idea which is “People can express global issues through creativity.” We have been given the agency to choose our assessments and also to plan for our product and process.
Neev Times is a platform for students to explore their creative selves and develop an independent voice. It covers important events, student articles, field trips, parent interviews and numerous other write-ups of interest to students.
