So this year's Grade 5i Primary Years Programme (PYP) Exhibition was held in school -- and the bonus? We were able to invite parents to see the students' works in our school lobby! Parents were able to view the exhibits and engage the student presenters in the morning of June 8.
In the final year of the PYP, our Grade 5 students do an extended, in-depth, collaborative project known as the PYP exhibition. They have been working collaboratively, conducting an in-depth inquiry into their choice of real life issues or problems. They collectively inquired, gathered evidence, and synthesized all of the essential elements of the PYP in ways that can be shared with the whole school community.
The exhibition will provide teachers with a powerful and authentic process for assessing student understanding. The exhibition represents a unique and significant opportunity for students to exhibit the attributes of the IB learner profile developed throughout their engagement with the PYP. This will also be an opportunity for the whole school community to celebrate the transition of our Grade 5 students to the next phase of their learning journey - Middle School.
Who were the four groups and their chosen topics?
