One of the things we had to do in our first week, was to make our class essential agreement.
In a PYP school, every class, every team, even the whole school has an essential agreement, which sets the tone for collaboration and teamwork. How else would we know what the shared norms and expectations are?
One of the ways to see how we change physically, emotionally and socially is to set ourselves challenges. We began with two challenges. The first one was to keep a balloon in the air for as long as possible. Each week, we will continue to get better and better at this challenge.
Try it for yourself, it isn't as easy as it looks.
