The Most significant and distinctive feature of the Primary Years Programme are the six transdisplinary themes
These themes provide IB Word Schools with the opportunity to incorporate local and global issues into the curriculum and effectively allow students to “step up” beyond the confines of learning within subject areas.
- Who we are
- Where we are in place and time
- How we express ourselves
- How the world works
- How we organize ourselves
- Sharing the Planet
Each theme is addressed each year by all students (students aged 3 to 5 engage with four of the themes each year.)
In addition all PYP students have the opportunity to learn more than one language from the age of seven.
