Curriculum + programme
The Primary Years Programme (PYP) of the International
Baccalaureate Organisation focuses on the development
of the whole child, from nursery (3 years old) to PYP 5
(10 years old), in the classroom, but also in the world
It offers a framework that meets children’s diverse needs:
academic, social, physical, emotional and cultural.
The PYP is a comprehensive approach
to teaching and learning with an
international curriculum model
– Content guidelines and learning objectives;
– A teaching methodology;
– Assessment strategies.
The curriculum model provides on its outside six Transdisciplinary Themes through which to explore and engage with the content in the different subject areas.
The core of the curriculum model shows the Five Essential Elements common to all teaching and learning: concepts, skills, knowledge, attitudes and action.
