Bake it - Y6 (JL)

On Friday, January 17th the Year 6 students opened their classroom doors to their exclusive, exquisitely designed restaurants at Jardines Lookout! 

Exit Point - 'Bake it' had finally begun!

The parents were greeted by their own personal maître d’ who explained how their restaurant evolved, followed by their waiters and waitresses explaining the menu and the science behind how their bread-based dishes were created! If this was not enough, they were taken on a world tour of countries, where charities need their help to prevent food shortages! Donations were made and Y6 made a grand total of $3115 to give to charity - not bad for their first hour of opening!

The Circus is coming to Town - GS/Y1 (TKO)

 

 

The Nature of Life - Y4 (Jardine's)

Year 4 had their Exit Point from Nature Of Life unit. The children were keen to share their knowledge to the parents on animal life cycles, classification and adaptation. Their skills were shown with the children creating an interactive branching database and quiz to identify different animals. ​

Fairgrounds - Y5 (Jardine's)

Year Five have been working on the Fairgrounds Unit in IPC. They have become Scientists and Technologists throughout the unit and created their own Fairground rides and games culminating in an exhibition where the pupils were able to demonstrate their knowledge and skills to the rest of the school and to parents.

 

The Nature of Life - Y4 (Jardine's)

Year 4 at JL had visitors to the classroom from Jurassic Garage for their entry point. The children got close up to a variety of weird and wonderful animals that were not native to HK. They learnt about the life cycles, habitats and adaptability of the animals.

What’s on the Menu? Y4 (Jardine's)

Year 4 at JL had their Exit Point from 'What’s On The Menu?'. The children articulated what they had learnt about the journey of food from field to plate and what they believed was important in making a restaurant successful. They had made and brought in food from different countries of the world for the visitors to try. 

Who am I? Y1 (Jardine’s)

By learning about ourselves and each other, we are able to celebrate our differences whilst also seeing all the things that we have in common. We are all individuals, but together we make up a wider community - one that should support and respect one another.

 

[Shared Project] This is me! RC/MS and GS/Y1 (TKO)

Our pupils completed their first shared project for the year, “This Is Me.” The students looked within and shared with us the things they love. Each house created unique art to capture their students' personalities and allow them to express themselves.

The exit points were a wonderful success with parents and students coming together to explore both agorae. 

 

 

Brainwave -Y2 (Jardine’s)

The Y2 pupils dissected jelly brains, practised skills and designed an obstacle course and then competed in the Super Spark Challenge. Theymade special Knowledge + Skills glasses, as well as model brains from play dough. And they sang songs to celebrate their learning!

 

[Shared project]  Five pillars of the Agora - CP/Y2 (TKO)

For their first shared project of the year, our TKO CP/Y2 pupils worked around the 5 pillars of their agora: cooperation, self-evaluation, engagement, respect and organisation. They also practised yoga and mindfulness.

The exit point was centred around a giant yoga and mindfulness session with all 125 children and almost as many parents, followed by a joyful gathering where the latter could discover the work done by their children since the beginning of the year.

 

Chocotopia - Y3 (Jardine’s)

Over the course of 8 weeks, the Y3A and B pupils have learned all about chocolate.

On October 25th, during their exit point, they presented their findings (along with their very own homemade, flavoured chocolate!) to other year groups, parents and staff. It was a delicious and wonderful time!

 

How Humans Work - Y3 (TKO)

The TKO Y3 pupils had great fun ending their topic designing and creating healthy smoothies. They got to use their chopping, grating and peeling skills to cut up lots of different fruit and vegetables to then blend and make a smoothie. They then invited their star guest, Mrs Payne, to come and taste them all with us. Fun was had by all.
