At Friday’s assembly Grade 4 presented their learning from their recent ‘How we express ourselves’ unit which focused on how artists develop their personal style through the influence of other artists and the world around them.  They led the other elementary classes through presentations and art activities that they had planned and set up.  We learnt about art movements such as cubism and surrealism and the other students really enjoyed trying out different techniques and skills, under the guidance of their Grade 4 ‘teachers’.  Parents also enjoyed having a go at using the different art tools and media.  Well done Grade 4 – you were creative and expressive artists as well as skillful teachers and communicators!

Well done Grade 5 - the PYP exhibition was a great success!  The central idea, written by the students, was: ‘Our choice of response and action make a difference within local and global communities.’  The visitors to the soft opening of the exhibition included classes from different grade levels and teachers from another PYP school. On the official exhibition day, student-led conferences were also happening, so many students with their parents visited either before or after their conferences. 

Thank you to the Grade 5 teachers, especially Mrs. Marijana Drezgic and Ms. Fika, and to the BIS community members who supported the exhibition.  A big thank you to the mentors and the Grade 5 parents.  Congratulations, Grade 5!  We look forward to seeing your reflections and comments.

During conferences teachers hope that parents will gain an insight into their child's learning. The students were responsible for leading the conference, and sharing the process with their parents through a variety of learning situations across several curriculum areas. They explained and reflected upon work samples that had been previously been selected (either by students or teachers or by both) to share with their parents. I observed many students being confident and reflective communicators and thinkers. The single-subject stations such as PE and Music also offered students the opportunity to teach their parents new skills.

Thank you to all parents who participated in the conferences.
