The Exhibition Buzz

Year 6 Exhibition Presentation Checklist-1With just under two weeks until our presentation, there is a real buzz in the classroom as boys are busy preparing items for their groups Exhibition. There are boys working independently and collaboratively as they piece together artworks, artefacts, written and spoken texts, images, music and the list goes on!

As the boys work on these elements of their exhibition they are sorting out their information and making connections between different components as well as with other topics (under the banner of how we organise ourselves).

Exhibition Presentation

Today, there was a buzz in the classroom as we considered how we were going to present our extensive knowledge of our topics. There were many familiar ideas and a few unique ones as well.

We agreed that our information had to be ORGANISED and the presentation style needed to MATCH the information and vice versa. We also discussed the importance of demonstrating a variety of presentation styles (remember, we’re aiming for the summit in our assessment rubric) to attract, inform and persuade our viewers.

Presentation Checklist

Year 6 Exhibition Presentation Checklist-1Today, the boys considered each aspect of their presentation and completed a checklist to make sure that they were on track to achieve their goals. The boys used their Music and Art time to start creating artworks and to further develop some of the existing components of their presentation with the guidance of both Mrs South and Miss Chapman.

There was a lot of creativity and cooperation as the boys shared ideas within and between groups… the ideas continue to flow and develop with each day.

The boys continue to demonstrate their reflective nature as they consider and reconsider aspects of their presentations and the importance of their chosen topic.

Technology Workshop

Mr C led a workshop on the effective and appropriate use of technology as a learning tool. We considered the ‘purpose’ of technology within the context of presenting our Exhibition and analysed the different levels of complexity that we can incorporate into our presentations by considering the following triangle.

When brainstorming different examples of technology (hardware, software, online) we were able to think of a large number of examples and discussed which level of the pyramid they would fit into. It was interesting to see what was suggested as there were many examples that we were familiar with but they weren’t necessarily on our mind at the time!

On Friday, we’re going to learn about some new programs that we could incorporate into our Exhibition presentation…
