Last week, SNA PYP and MYP team had a two – day workshop under the experienced PYP and MYP instructors for all teaching staff. It was a great chance to reflect, share ideas and explore new possibilities in a transdisciplinary context which will certainly be beneficial for our students.
In primary, students learned about the interconnectedness between animals, humans and the environment, which is especially obvious through the food chain. From this, students understood the importance of becoming responsible global citizens and the importance of sharing. They worked together to create their business, voted on a name, tag line, and logo. Students made animals out of paper mache and cotton wool, which could be used as decorations for their business.
3 weeks pass away, SNAers went through half of the summer journey of observing the world and exploring their own personal development, their own unique identity.
Last week, with the theme "Personal and Cultural Expression”, students had a chance to discover and express ideas, feelings, nature, culture, beliefs, and values; the ways in which we reflect on, extend and enjoy our creativity; our appreciation of the aesthetic.
