What’s different?
What stays the same?
• Just another Unit of Inquiry- just longer.
• All Western Australian and National Curriculum
requirements are still addressed. This includes
Literacy and Numeracy.
• Religious Education continues.
• Classroom procedures and expectations remain
constant.

What’s different?
What stays the same?
• Yes, key learning areas are still
addressed.
– English, Numeracy, Science, SOSE and Religion are
all still explicitly addressed. This may mean that in
some cases we deliver this material as a stand
alone unit from the Unit of Inquiry.
– Students who have extra needs will still be
supported in their learning and are catered for
with the Unit of Inquiry, just as with any other
unit.

What is the “Exhibition”?
• An opportunity to demonstrate independence and
responsibility for their own learning
• An opportunity for students to take action as a result of
their learning
• An opportunity to engage in an in-depth, collaborative
inquiry
• An opportunity to explore multiple perspectives
• A culminating celebration of the PYP learning journey

Inquiry Cycle

What does the exhibition mean for
our Year 5s?
• They will participate in selecting an engaging issue or problem
for the exhibition
• They will develop an inquiry through the central idea, lines of
inquiry and their burning question.
• They will work collaboratively and independently to plan the
exhibition, using a range of resources.
• Demonstrate their understanding of the knowledge, concepts,
skills, attitudes and action addressed through the unit.

Activity
Let’s imagine you are in Year 5 and have
just been introduced to the focus for your
Exhibition.
•What sorts of activities might be used to
“tune in”?
•List two (2) burning questions that you
would like answered
•Where might you go to find your
information to answer these?

How can parents help?
Parents can:
• Ask your child about the Exhibition
• Support and encourage your child
• Support by participating in research sessions
• Help locate resources- people, places, media and information
• Let your child solve their own problems.
• Let your child be responsible for their own learning.
• Celebrate with students by attending the final presentation.
12
Issues?
During the course of the Exhibition your
child might take an interest in a topic that
conflicts with your family values. For
example: You may not yet want them to
watch the news with particular images.
It is important you communicate this
to your child’s teacher so that they
are aware.
13
Homework
• Homework will be reduced to allow for
independent research.
• Further research and activities for the
Exhibition will be completed as
required.
• Due dates will remain the same.
14
Action
• Action is a response, attitude, representation that
emerges as a result of their investigation of their
burning question. It could be a range of things
including:
– Changing a behaviour at home
– Creating a document or presentation designed to
inform or influence
– Doing something that makes a long term difference
• During the inquiry process parents should ask about
what type of action their child might consider doing.
