The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) is a curriculum framework designed for students aged 3 to 12. It focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. It is defined by six cross-disciplinary themes of global significance, explored using knowledge and skills derived from six subject areas, with a powerful emphasis on inquiry-based learning.
As mentioned above, the learning process in the PYP (Primary Years Programme) revolves around the six major themes that allow students to become well-rounded, inquired thinkers: 
  • Who are we
  • Where are we in place and time
  • How we express ourselves
  • How the world works
  • How we organize ourselves 
  • Sharing the planet
There are two types of assessment in the PYP and is carried out internally by teachers within the school:

•Formative assessment is embedded in the teaching and learning

process and therefore occurs in the daily routine of a classroom. It

aims to support students to become better learners and helps

teachers to plan the next stage of learning.


•Summative assessment occurs at the end of the teaching and

learning process and provides students with opportunities to

demonstrate what they have learned in a new context. It aims to

give teachers, students and parents clear, evidence-based insight

into students' understanding at a particular moment in time.
