School students explore media and history through mini-exhibition

Students prepared innovative projects around the learning units in their curriculum



The Primary Years Programme (PYP) students of Apeejay School International, South Delhi, organised a mini-exhibition on April 29, 2023, showcasing their knowledge, understanding, and skills acquired through their current inquiry units.

PYP 4 students culminated their media unit, inquiring into ‘How Media Uses a Variety of Strategies to Influence the Audience.’ They learnt about the creative usage of images, text, and music in media, how to evaluate media critically, and the responsibility towards the choices they make. Applying their understanding of media, students created their advertisements to promote prototypes of business ideas.

Vivaan Verma from PYP 4 developed media strategies with his classmate for their innovative business, which was a three-in-one library including a snack shop, a play area with exciting games, and a stall for books. “We learnt about the different types of media. We made a digital and a print advertisement.”

Meanwhile, PYP 3 students culminated their civilisation unit with a spectacular play that explored “How Systems of Past Civilisations are Linked to Societies or Cultures of Today.” They learnt about the components and characteristics of different civilisations and their impact on today’s world. The play was an immersive experience that brought together elements of history, culture, and art to showcase the evolution of human civilisation.

Sharing her experience, Arshee Sachdeva from PYP 3 said, “The project focused on our thinking and research skills. Our school was divided into three groups: Ancient Asia, Ancient Europe, and Ancient America. As part of the Ancient Europe group, I dressed in a white robe and talked about the Colosseum, Julius Caesar, and Augustus.”

She added, “I enjoyed the exercise a lot. We also learnt interesting facts about different civilisations.”

The mini-exhibition was a visual feast that left a lasting impression on the audience. Students of both grades exhibited their confidence, knowledge, communication, and responsibility skills. All the students received enormous appreciation from the visitors for their efforts and skills.
