The Primary Years Programme is organized into 6 transdisciplinary themes that support inquiry in the context of an international education. All of these themes:

  • have global significance – for all students in all cultures;
  • offer students the opportunity to explore the commonalities of human experience;
  • are supported by knowledge, concepts and skills from the traditional subject areas, but are integrated into a transdisciplinary model of teaching and learning.

Throughout the year we will explore the following themes:

  • Who we are
  • Where we are in place and time
  • How we express ourselves
  • How we organize ourselves
  • How the world works
  • Sharing the planet (the focus of our PYP Exhibition)
