What is the IB Primary Years Programme?

How the PYP works
・Who we are.
・Where we are in place and time.
・How we express ourselves.
・How the world works.
・How we organize ourselves.
・Sharing the planet.
These themes are selected for their relevance to the real world. They are described as transdisciplinary because they focus on issues that go across subject areas.
The transdisciplinary themes help teachers to develop a programme of inquiry. Teachers work together to develop investigations into important ideas, which require a substantial and high level of involvement on the part of students.
Through the PYP curriculum framework, schools ensure that students examine each theme.
