Lower School Out in the Community

Over the past month, students in the PYP programme have taken numerous field trips to connect with themes from their classrooms.

As part of their Different People, Different Lives Unit of Inquiry, Grade 5 students recently visited the, ‘In Het Donker Gezien?’ museum.  Students were able to briefly experience what it is like to be visually impaired and reflect on how these individuals experience the world.

Connecting to their Units of Inquiry, Who We Are and How the World Works, Grade 4 recently took a bike trip to the Amsterdamse Bos.  The bike trip helped build community amongst the students, but students also learned more about how the Bos was built and its impact on the local community.

Grade 2 also took a trip to Amsterdamse Bos to support their current Unit of Inquiry, Our Fragile Earth.  Students did field research on the local habitat and gathered evidence on the different plants and animals that live in the forest.

One of the biggest benefits of ISA is that students are able to interact and learn from our amazing Amsterdam community!
