Year 6 PYP Exhibition
Exploring Solutions for a Better Tomorrow
We welcomed parents and friends of Year 6 to Hooke House recently for the Year 6 Exhibition - the culmination of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP). The Exhibition provides an authentic opportunity for the students to design, implement, and reflect on solutions for some of the world's most significant issues and take questions from an engaged audience of community members.
Prompted by an interactive, museum-style learning 'provocation', the girls investigated the concept that ‘Challenges provide opportunities for collaboration in action’. They researched the stories of people around the world who are making transformational changes in areas ranging from disability rights to saving the environment and men's health to educational access for girls.
The students wrote their own lines of inquiry, researched the data, identified a ‘hope story’ and devised a meaningful way to take action. To conclude, they created an artistic piece - an interpretation of their issue of choice, through music, dance, or visual art.
