St. John’s School has begun a continuum committee primarily focusing on the foundational skills that students require to be 21st Century Learners: students who are engaged and prepared for the changing world around them. Building on a strong academic continuum between our PYP, MYP and DP programmes, we are particularly invested in ensuring that our students develop academically and personally in a sequential way.
Last Monday, the Grade 10 standard Mandarin class went on a field trip to experience traditional Chinese cuisine. The field trip took place nearing the end of our food unit, which we had been studying for several weeks prior.
The Grade 3 classes have wrapped up a unit of inquiry about folk tales from around the world. As part of our unit, students read and compared a wide-range of folk tales, fables, legends and fairy tales. We looked at similarities, differences and common themes found in stories from a wide variety of cultures.
