The Primary Years Program of the International Baccalaureate is a framework for teaching and learning that centers on student inquiry. Students ages 3 to 12 years experience the curriculum through units of inquiry built around a central idea,, within six transdisciplinary themes of global significance. Through these units they explore the key concepts, learner traits, skills and attitudes of the PYP framework.
Through the integrated units of inquiry students study Language, Maths, Science, History, Geography, Music, Art, Health, Physical Education and ICT. The UK National Curriculum describes what students should know and be able to do in core subjects at different stages of learning.
The goal of the PYP program is to develop lifelong learners and global citizens who will be prepared to go out into our rapidly changing world with the knowledge and skills needed to make an impact.
