Welcome 5B Community
We are well into the assessment process of our Governance UOI. G5 students worked to construct the success criteria (rubric) that would be used to grade their presentation. A rubric is a tool that students can refer to throughout the assessment process, as it guides the learner towards the required outcome whilst they develop their presentations. It is an effective practice that is becoming more common, as it makes sense that assessment is something that should be done ‘with students’, and not ‘to students’.
Financial Plans; Students are learning how to create simple financial plans. This is an opportunity for students to use math in a real-life context, not to mention the benefits of students learning early how to earn, spend and save money wisely. Integrating math with UOI helps to deepen student understanding and provides opportunities to apply what they have previously learned in context.
Developing and understanding the Discussion Text type continues. Hedging sentences, strong modal language, pros and cons, evidence and testimonies, are all elements of this text type. After students reviewed their pre-assessment, they identified areas for improvement and have been practising to make these areas a strength.
AVAILLL continues to develop reading strategies and skills that support the learning of content, oral fluency, reading stamina and enjoyment. Students are being exposed to new vocabulary and writing styles as they work through this program. This week students took a dictionary to the movies to connect specific words and meanings to context.
Blue Dragon Walk-a-Thon
The commitment to action was again demonstrated by 5B students who were away for the last day, before the TET break. Angel and Na both took to the track and ran as their peers cheered them on. Well done girls and what a fantastically supportive group of peers you have.
The sponsor money has begun to come in. It looks like another huge effort from 5B this year. The final amount will be shared once all monies have been collected. Many thanks for the support and encouragement you have given to this worthy cause.
G5 PYP Exhibition
What are you passionate about?
What issues exist in this world that need your attention?
What are you going to do about it?
Our grade 5 students are about to launch into the culminating event of their time in the Primary Years Programme with the aim of answering all of these questions. Students and teachers have been busily preparing for this event all year. It is with great excitement that we are now ready to begin our G5 Exhibition otherwise known as PYPx.
PYPx is an opportunity for our oldest elementary school students to reflect on their time in the PYP and use the skills, knowledge and understandings that they have developed over the years to take action in an authentic and meaningful way.
This is very much a community project where we will involve students, teachers, parents and other members of the school community to support the G5 students work towards achieving their goals.
Parents and other community members are invited to join us for an information session on PYPx where we will share the Exhibition schedule, objectives and expectations.
Please join us on Friday, March 1st from 8:15 – 9:30am in the ES Creativity Space.
