Week -1 - The start of our journey

“The studio is a laboratory, not a factory. An exhibition is the result of your experiments, but the process is never-ending. So an exhibition is not a conclusion” - Chris Ofili

This quote stood out for us. We Grade 5 students were ready to start to experiment, enjoy, explore the new theme “ How we express ourselves”. Little did we know that exhibition is going to be such an experience for all. Though we are so used to decode our central ideas and tweak them as per our understanding, this was the first time we had to make the Central idea and the planner.

It sounds exciting but there was a hesitance of fear as it had huge accountability carried with it saying it is my(our) plan and I decide what I want to learn. 

We all started with discussions, debates and chit chats with our peer team and picked up words that we could relate under the transdisciplinary themes. There were so many first times in this process - forming of Central ideas, lines of inquiry, concepts, the subject focuses, learning outcomes, and phew the summative assessment.

Our mentors were real angels they guided us in every step we took. There were many senseless questions put forward and answered before we came to the conclusion of the below.

We had decided to put ourselves into three groups as per our interest to work on our research topics. They were art, music and dance and Photography. There was another news that put us into thought.  The new door of the challenge started here……….. Wait till we come back next week.
