Grade 3 got the wonderful opportunity to be a part of PYP Exhibition hosted by our Grade 4-5 friends! We had our very own Grade 3 booth where we showcased our Magic Years Community projects based on our last unit on systems and organisations within our school community. Check out the highlights from the exhibition!

School community project.

Our current unit of inquiry ended with all the groups presenting their school community project. Students created a 3D model of our school community and portrayed various systems of their choice inside the community that are an integral and vital part of our school community and what will happen if those systems cease to exist?
