At the end of every academic year, the fifth graders do a Moving Up assembly. It is a significant time as the students are moving up from 5th grade to 6th, from primary to middle school – where the changes are numerous. They take this opportunity to showcase their talents as a grade but more important, to bid adieu to their friends and teachers in primary. During the course of the assembly, many students expressed their gratitude to the teachers.
The theme of this year’s assembly – ‘Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much’ – a quote by Helen Keller; which resonates with one of the core values of Inventure Academy – to constantly nurture teamwork and individuality.
The different sections of Grade 5 held varied performances:
5a sang two songs – ‘Come Together’ by Beatles and ‘Alone’ by Alan Walker
5b displayed numerous yoga asanas and spoke about the benefits of yoga in today’s world
5c enacted a skit based on the theme of teamwork and integrated a dance in the story and a song at the end
5d synced a dance performance, which they had choreographed by themselves, to the tune of Cold Water by Major Lazer
The students had put together everything from the yoga display to the storyline of the skit and the steps of the dance, within a span of two weeks.
