There are six transdisciplinary themes that help teachers develop their programme of inquiries. These are in depth investigations into important ideas that are identified by teachers. Students have a high level of involvement in the learning process. The ideas are related to the world beyond the school. Students see the relevance of the content and connect with it in a variety of ways. Learning is both challenging and engaging in the PYP Program.
We believe that all students will know that a unit of inquiry involves an in-depth exploration of an important idea. Our teachers will be collecting evidence of how well their students understand an idea. They will be expected to work in a variety of ways, both independently and in groups.
Each day is an opportunity to explore the world around us in meaningful ways. The IB Learner Profile provides a model for students and parents to understand the process. There are ten learner qualities that PYP learners strive to be: inquirers, thinkers, communicators, risk-takers, knowledgeable, principled, open-minded, caring, balanced, and reflective. The 10 attributes reflect the holistic nature of an IB education. Our educators help students to develop and to demonstrate them over the course of their education. The development of these attributes is the foundation of developing internationally minded students who are motivated to learn from the world around.
We help your child to receive and share ideas and information in English through structured play and meaningful activities. The six themes in the PYP Curriculum are transdisciplinary and include subject areas across the curriculum.
