The Reflective Learners of NIS Primary Years

Primary Years are such an exciting time for both students and teachers. Children start to move past learning foundation concepts and begin to apply what they know to explore topics, for example reading for information. They start to become more responsible in their actions, focus for longer periods of time and begin to make independent decisions about their learning. Students also extend their knowledge to develop deeper understandings and show they can manage their time more effectively when working on independent learning projects. 

 

The students become more reflective about their learning which empowers them to make thoughtful choices about their work in this stage. The students' development of these skills was evident during today's International Primary Curriculum (IPC) exit point exhibition. The unit, 'Footprints from the Past' explored the dinosaur era. For the project, students were asked to synthesise their understanding about the Mesozoic era and palaeontology to 'discover' a new dinosaur. 

Their dinosaurs had to belong to one of three main eras, be named appropriately and have its diet connect realistically with the chosen period. Students then went through the design process to construct their dinosaur from recycled materials. A parade of dinosaurs took over the corridors which was followed by an exhibition where students presented their find to parents and other children. A wonderful experience showcasing both learning and effort.
