The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. It is a framework guided by six interdisciplinary themes of global significance. Students deepen their learning by developing their conceptual understandings, strengthening their knowledge and skills across and beyond subject areas.

Themes are explored using knowledge and skills derived from six subject areas (All subjects are seen in English, except Spanish and Physical Education):

  • Languages
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Arts (Music, Dance & Visual)
  • Personal, Social and Physical Education

The school year is divided into six units that follow the transdisciplinary themes of the PYP. All six subject areas are integrated into each Unit of Inquiry.

The six transdisciplinary themes of the PYP are:

  1. Who we are
  2. Where are we in place and time
  3. How we express ourselves
  4. How the world works
  5. How we organize ourselves
  6. Sharing the planet
