PreKindergarten 3

The PYP seeks to enhance students’ thinking skills and deepen theirunderstanding of themselves, the environment and the changing world. It prepares students for the essential skills they will need in the future. The PYP emphasises and supports the child’s struggle to gain understanding of the world and to learn to function comfortably within it.

The foundation of our programme is built upon the units of inquiry. These four units are taught for a period of 8-10 weeks each and are linked with Language, Mathematics and the single subjects (Art, Music, and PE) as appropriate. These units provide the content for Science, Social Studies (History, Geography and Society) and Technology. There are many learning engagements to get to the big ideas. (Not just ‘hands on’ but ‘minds on’!) This means students are not only learning subject skills from different subject domains in relevant contexts, but also learning to apply them to complex issues. Because the units work across several subjects, they are called transdisciplinary.
