The Primary Years Program (PYP) Curriculum
The International Baccalaureate Organization（IB）PYP program provides a comprehensive curriculum framework for teaching and learning. The program defines six transdisciplinary themes that identify areas of shared human experience and has meaning for individuals from different cultures. Our written curriculum has been designed in accordance to this framework, aligning with the Chinese National Curriculum. We also integrated Ontario curriculum into our language, art, PE, math, science and social study curriculum to ensure the rigor in those learning areas. Through each unit of inquiry, students will inquire, make connections, develop conceptual understanding, think critically, work collaboratively, consider multiple perspectives, construct meaning and take responsibility for our actions.
Inquiry, as the leading pedagogical approach of the PYP, is used as the dominant methodology to involve students in their own learning and to be responsible for their own learning. Inquiry allows each student to develop their understanding of the world at their own pace.
