A group of primary students, grades 3-5 finished off a month of writing in November and produced some fun stories and novels. Nanowriting is an international writing event every November where young people and adults all over the world set a writing target and try to meet up. Our JVLR young writers, from grades 3-5 set word count targets anywhere from 700 words to 12,000 words and met their goals.
Every lunch time, students came in to write and plan. Students then typed up their stories at home on the Nanowrimo site.
Congratulations young authors! The stories have been published and in the hands of our young writers now. Many are inspired to keep writing and there's talk of more writing clubs to come.
PYP Exhibition: The Process
Exhibition is the culminating, collaborative experience in the final year of the PYP. It is a process that gives students a chance to explore, document and share understanding of an issue/opportunity that is personally important
On November 28, 2019, a group of grade 5 students shared with their parents how they organize and document their learning. This was the first in a series of student sharing as part of the IBPYP Exhibition process.
Naisha, Sumukhi, Advita, Navya, Hrehaan, Amay, Ria, Aravh, Nivaan, Reya, Neil, Vedant, Kareena and Veer discussed Seesaw, Google Docs and slides and iTunes U. They explained to their parents how each of these applications helped them collaborate, organize and share their learning with their peers, teachers and parents.
Here’s what parents had to say about the different applications that students use.

Appreciation from the parents:
Great job on the first in our PYP Exhibition series. These students took the risk to be the first ones to present their learning to parents and can now help the other groups going through the process. Congratulations!
