The Exit Points of International Primary Curriculum (IPC)

As we are now at the end of the first half term, it is time to celebrate the learning that has been achieved in an IPC topic unit. Each year group, will hold an Exit Point to complete the thematic unit. The Exit Point helps children to draw on their prior learning, reminding them of all the connections between subjects they have made.

Exit Point is time dedicated to furthering student’s understanding of their learning, as well as time to reflect both individually and as a group. It is an important part of the IPC Learning Process Cycle.

IPC Learning Process

This week, Year 2 and Year 4 held their exit points.

Year 2 turned the whole of their corridor and classrooms into a Pirate School to end their ‘Treasure Island’ topic. They invited the Year 1 students and teachers over and taught them how to be a good pirate. This exit point gave the students the opportunity to demonstrate all of the different skills they had learnt during their topic. The activities included map designing, coin rubbings, parrot making and sword fighting!

Year 4 held an Art exhibition to showcase their learning from their ‘Paintings, Pictures and Photograph’ topic. Each class held their own exhibition at a separate time throughout the day and students invited in a family member to learn about the different materials and techniques they had studied. There was an excellent display of student sketches and watercolours. Year 4 students taught their family members how to use and apply the various techniques learnt and most importantly were able to explain why certain techniques were used, some examples included cross hatching, stippling and circling.

Once they have completed the learning for their current topic Y1, Y3, Y5 and Y6 will hold their exit points. And then the cycle begins again, with an entry point for the new topic. Letters have gone home over already introducing the new topic and you will receive a Curriculum Statement on the first day back at school which will outline the learning that will take place for Term 1B.
