The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Primary Years Programme is a curriculum framework designed for students aged 3 to 12.The PYP transdisciplinary framework focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both at school and beyond. Informed by research into how students learn, how educators teach, and the principles and practice of effective assessment, the programme places a powerful emphasis on inquiry-based learning. It aims to develop students’ academic, social and emotional wellbeing, focusing on international-mindedness and strong personal values. The PYP nurtures independent learning skills, encouraging every student to take responsibility for their learning.It provides schools with a curriculum framework of essential elements — the knowledge, concepts, skills, attitudes, and action that young students need to equip them for successful lives, both now and in the future.Schools work with the five elements to construct a rigorous and challenging primary curriculum for international education. The programme incorporates local and global issues into the curriculum, asking students to look at six related, transdisciplinary themes and to consider the links between them. The themes are-
oWho we are
oWhere we are in place and time
oSharing the planet
oHow we organize ourselves
oHow we express ourselves
oHow the world works
These themes are selected for their relevance to the real world. They are described as transdisciplinary because they focus on issues that go across subject areas.The transdisciplinary themes help teachers to develop a programme of inquiry. Teachers work together to develop investigations into important ideas, which require a substantial and high level of involvement on the part of students.
The PYP is committed to structured, purposeful inquiry that engages students actively in their own learning. The programme supports students’ efforts to construct meaning from the world around them by:
odrawing on their prior knowledge
oproviding provocation through new experiences
oproviding opportunities for reflection and consolidation
This approach respects students’ developing ideas about how the world works. It encourages them to question, consider and refine their understanding of the social and natural world and connect it to real life situations that they face in their life.
