With one more cycle gone by we reach closer to the D-day. But this cycle was a mix of emotions.
The students began this cycle by applying their knowledge of the Mathematical concepts learned so far as they appeared for the term-end assessment.
They were enthusiastic inquirers while researching and identifying two issues which they would like to take a step towards resolution. Post the research, they made an informed choice of focusing on one such local or global issue of personal significance and the anticipated action that they would be taking as a small step towards bringing about a change. This issue became their topic for the PYP Exhibition.
They also appreciated their culture and especially their mother tongue by sharing their thoughts, food and knowledge through the Mother tongue assembly.
Then came the day of playing for their section’s pride and bringing honour to the class by winning the trophies of being the champions of the Grade 6 in games like Kho Kho, Kabaddi, Langdi and Tug of War.
With all the zeal and ferocity they fought but as we know there is only one winner!
The next day started with aches and pains, with bruises, sprains and fractures but their strong will brought them back to the school. And, they were presented with another choice. This time about the medium of expression. Some confused, some sure and some bouncing all around with their choices of the medium, for their artistic fire had been given a fresh supply of oxygen.
To add to their excitement, they also celebrated the World Maths Day by playing the Math Games created by their peers.
With all the excitement of working on something they want to and the way they want to showcase their learning, they were introduced to their group members and their teacher-in-charge. They shared their ideas for action and understanding of the topic, with their group members. They tried to know the teacher-in-charge a little better as they were to work with her for the upcoming gigantic task.
Finally, the cycle did come to an end but it is yet not the end of their adventure called the ‘PYP Exhibition’.
Thanks and regards
Grade 6 Team
