IPC Exit Point Day

21.02.2020

On the last day of each module, Wunderpark International School celebrates their knowledge with an IPC Exit Point Day. This day-long event combines individual projects with group projects, and classroom work with school-wide activities. The children created projects that demonstrated their understanding of the IPC topic, knowledge and skills.

Each year group in the primary section had their own topic that they spent the entire module working on and studying. The students examined one topic from many different points of view: science, history, geography, English, and maths. Here are our Module 3 topics:

Year 1 - Look and Listen
Year 2 - We are what we eat
Year 3 - What’s on the menu?
Year 4 - Land, Sea, Sky
Year 5 - Black Gold?; Oil Industry
Year 6 - Myths and Legends

Our Lower Secondary weren’t ones to be outdone! We started the day with a Year 7 science demonstration outside the front of school. We saw a volcano and learned why it reacted in this way. Afterward, we went upstairs to the Year 7 classroom and learned more about their science experiments. Thank you Year 7 for sharing with us!

The next part of the day was a tour of each other’s classes. Classes split in two taking turns to tour or explain. One group stayed to explain to visiting classes, the other went around learning about the other classes topics. Students saw how any subject can be both independent and interdependent.There was also a great sense of community as each student got to see what every other student did for their IPC Exit Point activity.

Each student voted on the creativity, teamwork, and international mindset of the classes they visited. Peer feedback is a great thing! The winners of each category were announced at assembly. Congratulations to our winners!

Most creative - Year 4
Best Teamwork - Year 4
Most Internationally minded - Year 6

Last, but not least, we invited our parents into our classrooms to see what their children worked on during Module 1. Parents started in their child’s own class, then they were taken around Wunderpark by their own personal tour guide - their child! Our students showed their parents each class and explained what they had learned during the Exit Point Day!

Thank you for a great day of learning and community, Wunderpark!
