Primary School 

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

Online & Blended Learning

KSI Bogota created a Distance Learning Plan to organise the process and resources needed to effectively deliver lessons to our students from R-Y13, with varying needs and abilities.

This document is an outline of our plan to ensure that the students of KSIB are learning at home, use dynamic and relevant activities, as they would in class, at school. We have worked to organise and prepare this process across all of our three programs and established unique processes for each.

The Distance Learning Plan is designed to address the following scenario:

  • Asynchronous learning to ensure the opportunity to learn for all students at any time;
  • Synchronous engagements to support learning and socio-emotional well-being of students through real-time engagements;
  • Limited and / or variable online access to technology and internet for some students;
  • Extended flexible timeline for Distance Learning delivery (at least, if not more than two weeks);
  • A commitment to monitoring and improvement of this plan and the student experience during the time of its implementation.

This Distance Learning Plan will define the following:

  • Implementation Procedure to conduct school remotely until resumption of normal operations;
  • Details the Expectations required of both teachers and families for the successful continuation of student learning and family communication; and,
  • Divisional Plans that address developmentally appropriate and meaningful student learning experiences.

Our Online Platforms support both Distance Learning and faculty / student / family collaboration to ensure a quality student learning experience when planning and delivering remotely:

  • KSIB email, Managebac, Google Hangouts Meeting (whole class or group Hangouts Meetings our individual Meetings) and Google Classroom are the communication tools used to contact and communicate with KSIB students
  • Google Hangouts Meeting and Google Suite (e.g., email, shared docs, etc) are faculty online collaboration platforms for remote instructional planning.
  • Google Hangouts or Skype for parents school.
