“Whatever good things we build end up building us.” – Jim Rohn.
A month into virtual learning, this journey has been an inquiry process for all of us – questions leading to more questions as we bump into our Aha Moments! and new challenges. Truly, we all have grown as learners. Our online journey started with asynchronous class, sharing lesson plans then moved to synchronous class occasionally where students interacting on a Zoom calls. And now, the PYP Arts team brings to you the experience of a Virtual Art platform to showcase students’ learning. This will go live to the Neev community in the week of 11th May 2020.
Sharing below some of the details for us to work towards Grades 1, 2, & 3 - Virtual Visual Art Gallery. In Visual art, over the year students have been experimenting on different media, techniques, and skills. They explored different art movements and styles and had fun in discovering a wonderful magical world of Art through reading aloud, field trips, videos, and being exposed to different artist's work. The students will share all their learning by creating an art workpiece.
The students are working on the art task and the submission date for the same will be shared by the art teacher in the art lesson plan.
We request you to send a high-resolution image of the artwork for creating the virtual art gallery. Please send the artwork pictured in the below email ID, mention the child’s full name, class/section, and title of the artwork.

Grade 4 - Virtual Spotlight - Theatre Performance
In Theatre, the focus for this trimester was to apply physical gestures and vocal skills through a storytelling format. The students have been learning to take a physical theatre approach to storytelling. The students will create a performance - for not more than 5 mins either individually or by virtually work in pairs or in group choosing a story related to any culture from across the world or the Arabian Nights that they have already worked on. While submitting a video clip of their performance. They would need to upload -
Please note: If the submissions are in this format, putting the videos together would be easier.
Grade 5 – Music Concert
The students have had the highly challenging task of learning music online this trimester, acquiring skills for playing instruments and composing music. Now we venture on a journey to bring this term's learning in the form of video production of Greensleeves. We will share snippets of students’ learning and growth. While submitting a video clip of their performance. They would need to upload -
Please note: If the submissions are in this format, then putting the videos together would be easier.
