Junior School and beyond

This all sounds like a busy term; however, the Junior School still found time for learning!

Right across the School, our passionate teachers and classroom assistants have been making lessons fun with innovative ideas to support the students within their Units of Inquiry. The First School Role-Model assemblies were a real highlight this term, with both teachers and students talking about people who have both influenced their lives and whom they admire.

“Grade 5 was a terrific and action-packed year. Ranging from the first day all the way to the end. Dibba camp, the PYP exhibition and all our inter-house competitions. Grade 6 will be a challenge but I’m ready to cope. It’s a new challenge and I’m one hundred percent ready! Senior school, bring it on!” By Edward Tabanji

Science Week got off to a bang, with explosions, bubbles and fire; then led into a busy week of science-related lessons and activities, especially for the Lower School. There was a fascinating crime scene to investigate, which had the students following a trail of evidence all over the School and using scientific methods to analyse them. After an exhaustive investigation that had several members of staff named as suspects, the culprits were finally identified. The week wrapped up the best way possible, with fancy dress, a photo booth filled with scientific props and an amazing science-themed cake competition and bake sale.
