Thank you to all those Grade 6 - 8 parents who attended the recent parent session: Introduction to Assessment in MYP - Grades 6 - 8. Due to technical difficulties I apologise to those who could not be part of this session. The link below will take you to the video recording.
Science in Action: Grade 7
The focus of teaching and learning sciences for grade 7 students has been around stimuli and responses in everyday situations. The aim was for students to connect their responses in these situations, to the stimulus and understand the perception pathway in human bodies. Grade 7 students engaged with an informed discussion on ‘why we respond the way we do’. This deepened their understanding of the way the human body responds. In this process, the students developed critical thinking skills, communicated effectively and worked collaboratively to enhance their own learning and learning of their peers.

Science in Action: Grade 10
Our Grade 10 students are currently exploring the unit
“ How do machines make our lives better?” in their Science classes . They are building on their ATL Skills - Transfer of learning through the various activities and tasks in this unit. They are drawing connections between the concepts of Motion and the Working of the Musculoskeletal System in Humans and how the knowledge of these concepts inspired the invention and designing of new machines that helps in making our lives better and comfortable. This was one such introductory fun task where the students used their prior knowledge and experience in redesigning a product of their choice. The outcome of this activity was very positive. The students applied their learning from subjects like Design, Arts and Maths to create the 2-Dimensional design of their redesigned product. This brought out the students creativity and innovation. They also got an opportunity to work on their collaborative skills as this activity was performed in groups.
