Year 6 PYP Exhibition

10 May 2008

The Year 6 Exhibition is a culmination of the Primary Years Programme.

The Year 6 Exhibition is a culmination of the Primary Years Programme. The IBO emphasizes and encourages students in Year 6 of the Program to undertake an in-depth collaborative inquiry to synthesize the primary years learning and to share their learning with the community in the form of an Exhibition.

The first Year 6 PYP Exhibition at AKA/M was held May 5th – 9th 2008. Students chose a central idea from the Organizing theme, “Sharing the Planet” to express their ideas for a safer, friendlier and diverse planet that we share and care for. Students presented their research and findings to fellow students, parents and the AKA/M community. Students grouped themselves into areas of personal interest, choosing to focus on issues of land abuse, lamenting for endangered species, pleading with humanity to save our planet and think about our actions to protect our lands and seas. Groups shared how they had taken action to protect the environment, and encouraged visitors to do likewise.

The Year 6 Exhibition is a culmination of the Primary Years Programme. It is a requirement in PYP schools that Year 6 students undertake an in-depth collaborative inquiry to synthesize the primary years learning and to share the learning with the community in the form of an Exhibition.
