Many of you were probably amazed at the quality of both the singing but also the art work on display - both in the reception area and as the backdrop of the presentation.
Mrs Murphy and Ms Rodelyn worked super hard not only documenting the art but also presenting it... Have a look at the art blog - and feel free to leave comments!
And I think the Arts department - as well as the students will love it... :) It is very easy to make your own - just go to the Star Wars 'Crawl Creator' and try it out!
On a serious note, the event will be filmed - click the link on the sidebar (or here!) to watch the Grade 3-5 Celebration of Arts tomorrow from 9am - well worth a watch!
Watch below for the amazing Grade 5 strings performance - including the teachers - AND 3KR rocking it out about their current Unit of Inquiry, 'Air' from about 12 and a half minutes in...!
Apologies for the 'lost signal' between 11 minutes & 12 minutes. Technical difficulties!
What? This year the Elementary School Communication Diaries are being jazzed up with new art work. We thought it would be a great way to get the elementary student body involved...
When? Submit art work to your class teacher by May 12th
*Please ensure the students name and grade are on the back of the drawing*
Below is the LiveStream of the PreK/KG1 concert - great stuff guys! :) Let us know where in the world you are watching it from in the comments - let's celebrate our internationalism!
While you are waiting for it to load, you may want to vote for Ms O'Leary - our ES PE teacher who has made the top 12 to become the next UAE Explorer. For her to make it to the final 5, she needs the most amount of votes for her video.

Please see below for a very informative (and fun) assembly about Islamic Education as well as other news from around the PYP!
We had two sessions over this week sharing useful information about iPad use at home and recommended apps - for students AND parents.
The Appstore is the place where everyone locates and downloads iPad apps BUT there are a few sites out there that specifically looks for the best educational (but fun!) iPad apps and I shared my personal favourite, 'appitic' which sorts the best educational apps into themes and subjects
We also recommended some cool EDUCATIONAL apps for students AND the 'big kids' (parents!):
As part of Parent Engagement Week, I presented about useful web tools for students and parents. For those of you who were not able to make it, here are a selection of the tools that I discussed...
A great tool - for parents too :)
Parents also had an opportunity to experiment with Tagxedo - a great tool to make signs, cards and many other cool visuals - like the one below made from the words on this post!
Thank you to those parents who came - hope it was useful!
