Transdisciplinary Themes

How we express ourselves
Where we are in place and time
How the world works
How we organize ourselves
Sharing the planet

 

What do we want to learn? The Written Curriculum
The Primary Years Programme (PYP) strives for a balance between the search for understanding (concepts), the acquisition of essential knowledge and transdisciplinary skills, the development of positive attitudes and the opportunity for positive actions. The five (5) components of the written curriculum are considered “essential elements”. In the learning environment, students engage with the curriculum through meaningful situations and engagements. They develop skills that transcend the individual disciplines, which ultimately help them to conduct purposeful inquiry and prepare for further education and life beyond school.

 

How best will we learn? The Taught Curriculum
The taught curriculum is the written curriculum in action. Central ideas, infused with a spirit of “inquiry”, are chosen in each unit of inquiry that will enhance each student’s understanding of issues of global significance. Inquiry is the process initiated by the students or the teacher that moves the students from their current level of understanding to a new and deeper level of understanding.

 

How will we know what we have learned? The Assessed Curriculum
The prime objective of assessment in the PYP is to provide feedback on the learning process. Students and teachers should be actively engaged in assessing the students’ progress as part of the development of their wider critical thinking and self-assessment skills.

The entrance to the Kindergarten section features toys and storybooks, all placed on the cushioned steps. There children can borrow toys and books. Further down you will find an indoor carpeted area where the children play on slides, go through tunnels, build with blocks or carry out other activities. There are different learning corners-computers, language, mathematics and science-in each classroom, hence children are given opportunities to explore.

The beautiful and peaceful seaview is an added bonus to the school environment where our children enjoy studying.
