PYP (Primary Years Programme) Framework
Our school's aim, as all other IB programs, is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world.
The vision of our curriculum is the integration of as many disciplines as possible into the transdisciplinary theme. The curriculum overlaps in the three main areas of instruction, Literacy, Numeracy and the Program of Inquiry. The greater the overlap with contextual learning, the greater the ability of the learner to make sense of the studies.
Learners Constructing Meaning: The PYP Definition of Curriculum Framework
One of the aims of the PYP is to create a trandisciplinary curriculum that is engaging, relevant, challenging and significant for learners. The PYP definition of curriculum is broad and inclusive. Our IB School believes that:
- all students should be supported to participate in the progamme to the fullest extent possible
- the school’s curriculum includes all those student activities, academic and non-academic, for which the school takes responsibility, since they all have an impact on student learning.
The PYP definition of curriculum is comprised of three interrelated components. In keeping with the PYP commitment to inquiry, these three components are expressed in the form of the following three open-ended questions, each of which compels teachers to think deeply about their own practice with regard to student learning.
