THE PRIMARY SCHOOL
IB PRIMARY YEARS PROGRAMME PYP
Designed for students age 3-12, the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) provides the knowledge, concepts, skills personal attributes and the capacity to take action, all of which younger students need to equip them for successful lives, both now and in the future.
Students from 5 - 12 years of age attend our Primary School. We offer multi-age Learning Groups (classes) from Foundation to Year 6.
Students learn through inquiry and have homeroom and specialist teachers to offer 21st century learning engagements.
ASIPP integrates the Australian National Curriculum with the International Baccalaureate PYP Curriculum Framework.
The Primary School provides stimulating and motivating learning spaces for all students.
The PYP framework allows schools to design an engaging transdisciplinary curriculum, meaning that it focuses on issues that go across, between and beyond subject areas. With a focus on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, the PYP is designed to support each student in the following ways:
• address students’ academic needs and their social and emotional well-being
• encourage students to develop independence and to take responsibility for their own learning
• support students’ effort to gain understanding of the world and to function effectively within it
• help students to establish personal values as a foundation upon which international-mindedness will flourish
Learning in the PYP is underpinned by six transdisciplinary themes, each selected for their relevance to the real world. Students explore the commonalities of human experience and investigate these themes in what teachers call a programme of inquiry. These six PYP themes puts students at the centre of the learning process:
Who we are
Inquiry into the nature of the self; beliefs and values; person, physical, mental, social and spiritual health; and human relationships.
Where we are in place and time
Inquiry into our orientation in place and time; personal histories; the discoveries and explorations of humankind; and the interconnectedness of individuals and civilizations.
How we express ourselves
Inquiry into the ways in which we discover and express ideas, feelings, nature, culture, beliefs and values.
How the world works
Inquiry into the natural world and its laws, the interaction between the natural world and human societies; the impact of scientific and technological advances on society and on the environment.
How we organize ourselves
Inquiry into the interconnectedness of human-made systems and communities; the structure and function of organizations; and their impact on humankind and the environment.
Sharing the planet
Inquiry into rights and responsibilities in the struggle to share finite resources with other people and other living things; access to equal opportunities; and peace and conflict resolution.
