The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP) aims to help students develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes they need to excel not only in their studies but also in their personal growth.The PYP is a process led, inquiry based curriculum that encourages students to ask questions and seek answers about the world around them. It helps students to become independent, confident thinkers and learners from an early age. The programme incorporates local and global issues into the curriculum, asking students to look at six related, trans-disciplinary themes and to consider the links between them .The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP) is underpinned by six trans-disciplinary themes around which learning is planned.
The 5 Essential elements of PYP are: Knowledge, Skills, Concept, and Attitudes and Action
Assessment is an essential part of the teaching and learning process. It provides information about student learning and development, as well as a framework for planning, self-reflection, and collaboration. Formative and Summative assessments are done for each unit followed by Student led conferences,this helps teachers in understanding students’ strengths and challenges. These are reflected in a report called “The Touch stone report” and is shared with parents periodically.
In the final year of the PYP, students, carry out an extended, in-depth, collaborative project known as the PYP exhibition. This involves students working collaboratively to conduct an in-depth inquiry into real life issues or problems. Students collectively synthesise all of the essential elements of the PYP in ways that can be shared with the whole school community. They identify, investigate and find solutions to real life problems. It also provides teachers with a powerful and authentic process for assessing student understanding. The exhibition represents a unique and significant opportunity for students to exhibit the attributes of the IB learner profile developed throughout their engagement with the PYP. It also provides schools and students with a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the transition of learners to the next phase of their education.
At the end of an academic year, students demonstrate their knowledge in learning through a formal SLC. In addition to the concepts learnt, various skills like communication skills, social skills, attitudes like confidence, respect and time management, collaboration is presented by students to parents, peers and teachers. This assessment gives an in-person experience to parents on their child’s overall development.
