A Trip Out of this World for Year 1s
By Lesa Eastwell, Year Level Leader - Year 1
The Year 1 students visited the Sir Thomas Planetarium in Brisbane this week. As this was many of the students' first excursion the anticipation was high!
The Year 5s have been working especially hard this week towards their PYP Exhibition. Now we have chosen our topics, we have to do a little research, in fact, A LOT of research.
Now the fun really beings! We have been using our research skills to find reliable websites and secondary and primary resources. To help us get the best information we can, the librarians in the KIP have offered to help us by hosting research appointments. We are super grateful for this. The most challenging part so far has been collecting primary sources as these need to be a direct source. We are fortunate to have our mentor teachers now, who will be helping us collect more information.
The PYP Exhibition is a display of our learning all the way through school so far. Therefore, our mentor teachers are from all parts of the junior school and they give up their time to help us do our very best. We are in interest groups of three to six people who are doing a similar topic. On the day, the interest groups will put their work together to create a huge display, thus creating the final product – The PYP Exhibition.
In addition to this, we have now selected the T-shirt design. Many students entered drawings of their interpretation of the central idea and we were all blown away by the talent. It was a very hard job for the teachers to decide. We are looking forward to wearing these amazing, personalised T-shirts and hope you like them too!« Back to IndexNext article in this edition »
