The PYP exhibition is the culminating event of the primary years in IB. This allows students to progress through a collaborative and critical thinking journey of inquiry. They explore local and global issues and showcase their conceptual learning .They make connection and dig deeper into the real world. With these ideologies, grade 5 learners of Vidyatree Modern World College, planned their exhibition.

The final day presentation was in the form of Nukaad Natak, Skits, Song, Dance drama and Mime. During their presentation, they even took a pledge to save the environment by planting more trees, never to waste paper and be more responsible for a better future.

Have you ever wondered how does day and night occur?
Well to know this, learners of Grade 1 were shown a practical using globe and a torch. The room was darkened and the light was thrown on one side of globe. Here they saw when torch(Sun) lighted one part of globe(Earth) then it was day in that region whereas the other side was dark which meant its night there. Earth’s rotation causes the occurrence of day and night. This practical constructed their understanding of occurrence of day and night.
