The Five Essential Elements of the IB PYP

Essential Elements
  • Key Concepts are big ideas which enable students to make connections across subject areas, inside and outside of the classroom.

     

    Knowledge includes six international themes which organize our school's programme of inquiry.  Each grade level has developed six units of inquiry, one for each transdisciplinary theme.

     

    Transdisciplinary Skills, also called Approaches to Learning, are purposefully planned for through learning experiences which enable students to develop these necessary skills.

     

    Attitudes include twelve character traits, specifically for the PYP, Primary Years Programme, and are what we want students to feel.

     

    Action is the ultimate goal of all IB programmes.  It includes service to others and making a positive impact on the world.
