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.
