What is IB PYP?
The IB PYP is an engaging, student-centered curriculum managed by the International Baccalaureate that teaches children to become independent, lifelong learners and critical thinkers. Transdisciplinary framework of the IB program allows students to explore various topics across subject areas, rather than merely memorizing facts or studying topics in isolation. This makes it possible for students to enhance their skill sets and knowledge and apply them in real-world contexts.
IB Primary Years Programme is an all-encompassing framework focusing on international-mindedness and universal values, key characteristics of dynamic citizens and leaders. OWIS, being an ib school, teaches young learners all of this within the framework of IB-PYP.
The IB learning at One World International School encourages children to get involved in the surrounding community, where they learn the value of serving others and making a difference.
Exhibitions and other special events foster teamwork and communication whilst enabling students to showcase their skills and talents.
Students learn to be responsible stewards of the environment by participating in initiatives aimed at conserving precious natural resources.
Students complete research and other projects using iPads, laptops and other devices. This teaches them not only to use technology responsibly but to become more adaptable as it continues to evolve.
Organized sports, class discussions, and other collaborative activities according to the ib curriculum help students appreciate different roles and perspectives, instilling in them a sense of respect for themselves and others.
Teachers take students' interests into account when planning the curriculum, empowering them to raise queries and take the initiative to discover the answers. Students also get personalized attention from the teachers to enhance their knowledge and get their curiosity addressed.
Students explore topics across different subject areas in ib classes. For example, a unit on sharing the planet might include science lessons on natural resources, social science lessons on communities and interdependence, and mathematics lessons on calculating population growth.
Inquiry Led Framework
The PYP framework empowers students to take ownership of their learning through inquiry. This comprehensive approach also provides opportunities for teachers to collaborate so that they can hone their craft by staying current on best practices and innovative methods and learning new, creative ways to incorporate them into their classrooms. Our dynamic campus, with its flexible learning spaces and cutting-edge facilities, provides an ideal setting to implement the IB PYP.
