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.
