On Friday 29 January, the Year 4 classes spent the day having an Orientation Day. They started the morning with a Bootcamp challenge from Urban Survivor, followed by four rotations around the Year 4 teachers in mix and mingle groups.

The idea behind the day was to provide students an orientation into the Primary Years Programme and to introduce some of the vocabulary that this programme uses. The language of Concepts – Learner Profile – Global Mindedness – Central Idea were introduced in a hands-on way in classroom learning engagements as a provocation to the new academic year, and to allow students an opportunity to begin their journey into the Year 4 curriculum.
