Roman Architecture @ISKK PYP

Venus Class worked on Roman Architecture in line with their unit on the Roman Empire. Students explored different needs for architectural structures. They inquired into how these structures are built, what kind of materials and techniques were used and why they were built.

Communication Box project by ISKK PYP Students

In Venus class, we worked  on designing and building a communication box for ISKK during our first term. The students decided to make small size sculptures of themselves and combine it with a purposeful communication box  design for the whole school.  First we started with brainstorming about how it would look like. We followed by creating dotted patterned designs for some parts of the box as a part of the Dot Day on September 15 and lastly this week we put together all our creations together. Please have a look at what we have been doing for the past weeks in the below slideshow.

Wonderful Exhibition

Every year as a part of Grade 5 Exhibition, I volunteer to be a mentor to students in Grade 5. This year, I mentored a group in Zurich International School. My exhibition group was focusing on the central idea “Poverty can challenge people’s ability to access education”. They called themselves the Super Educated Monkeys and did a research about their inquiry. Along the way they used a lot of websites and human resources. They interviewed a librarian in Tanzania and wrote emails to various organisations. They gathered a lot of information and extended their understanding and knowledge about their subject throughout the weeks. On their exhibition night, all well dressed and prepared, they presented their findings at their booth. They talked about what they have learned and what their actions would be. I am very proud of this team of students. I learned as much as they learned throughout their inquiry. A couple of days after the exhibition, I received a “Thank You” Presentation form them It made my day. Please find it below:
