Grade 10 Guests
G5A were so lucky this week to have four Grade 10 students visit the class meeting room to share their knowledge on Climate change, plastic pollution and recycling. The Grade 5 student’s feedback included
“I like their slides and how they explained, it was clear and simple to understand, they must have spent so much time on research. They did amazing, I’m inspired.”
“I think they were very passionate about what they were talking about. I think it was very clear that they researched this topic.”
Whereas the Grade 10’s reflections were equally as complimentary
“But, the best part of our project was being able to have a meeting with Grade 5 students in PYP and teach them about climate change, its causes, effects and solutions we can provide. We also taught them how to recycle some objects at home and they asked us astounding unexpected questions on the issue.”
We hope to have more meetings like this in the future.
The governance unit completed this week with the students all turning in their slideshows, model pictures and their rubrics.
Our new unit based on the transdisciplinary theme of How we express ourselves and identity will start on Wednesday 5th May. the central idea is
|Changes people experience affect their sense of self.|
This unit will focus on rights of passage ceremonies, online identities and the transition from PYP to MYP.
The students are continuing their investigation into different types of poetical structure and next week will begin a mini study of a particular poet with the help of Ms Lindsay.
The student’s are continuing their learning of geometric shapes with a focussed study on the language of shape.
