From the beginning of Term 3 to the end, we have been working on our Exhibition projects. Until… finally, the day had come for Year 6 to showcase our work to our guardians.
It was Thursday, and the day that everyone had been both, nervous and excited. It was the night that gave you butterflies in your stomach. It was also a time to make our parents proud of us. Well… that’s how I interpreted it anyway.
Others just took it as a useless momentum to their boring Years at elementary school. Exhibition, as the name suggests, is a gallery walk, a summary of the education we received at MVPS. I personally took it as a prison leave ?… (lol).
Honestly speaking though, I did learn a lot. My topic was Personalitites, which is the combination of characteristics or qualities that form an individual’s distinctive character. From there, my group created a central idea, which was: “Students will understand that experiences and choices may influence an evolving individual”. And further down the track, we created Lines of Inquiries, which guided us down to our individual KRQ (Key Research Question ). This question directed us in researching, which we used to create our Written Responses. From there, the Written Responses gave us ideas to how we could “create” out Exhibiton Stand and make it “Pop”. The Written Responses also led us to the creation of the Creative Pieces, which was the main and crucial part to our Exhibition Stand.
This is where Exhibition really becomes exciting. The simple idea of our Creative Responses gave us motivation and enthusiasm, thus boosting our confidence in the task. It was about this point I reflected upon the past 6 weeks of hard working. I can now give a approximate guess of someone’s personality by simply analysing reactions and choices. I also know a whole heap of new theories and facts which I thought to be really cool and help me on my journey to University and beyond.
