Learning

P5 experiences a yearlong ‘Who we are’ unit on development. This unit’s concluding line of inquiry is “an inquiry into transitioning to something new”, happening during May and June. Learning engagements include shadowing MYP learners for a day and question-and-answer sessions with the MYP Coordinator.
