USING AN INQUIRY CYCLE TO STRUCTURE OUR LEARNING DURING ‘EXHIBITION’ Now that we are accredited as a fully authorised PYP School, we are required by the IBO to put together an Exhibition which showcases and celebrates our boys’ learning as they conclude their primary education. It is an opportunity for each Year 6 boy to demonstrate the concepts, skills, knowledge and attitudes he has gained throughout his participation in the Primary Years Programme. Each student develops and designs an inquiry, based on a common Central Idea, and then takes action, which is shared in the Exhibition itself. Using the skills they have gained throughout the programme, students develop their own questions, conduct research, collect data, analyse and develop their own solutions/responses to their chosen issues. The PYP Exhibition incorporates a variety of disciplines and may include written and oral presentations, aspects of technology, artistic interpretations and performances. We are currently in the tuning in phase for our inaugural Exhibition which will take place on Thursday Evening, 18th August. To commence our inquiry, Year 6 invited Belinda Noonan, editor of the ‘Burwood Scene’, to help us tune in to the issues that might be of concern to our local community. This is an exciting event for our School community so please try and keep the date free. | Christina Ranatawake PYP Co-ordinator Strathfield CONCLUSION, REFLECTIONS & TAKING ACTION INQUIRY CYCLE TUNING IN FINDING OUT SORTING OUT GOING FURTHER TRINITY NEWS 29
