Transcript of PYP- Parents presentation

Primary Years Programme
What is PYP?
The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) is an educational programme managed by the International Baccalaureate (IB) for students aged 3 to 12.

It focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. The PYP is flexible enough to accommodate the demands of most national or local curricula and provides the best preparation for students to engage in the IB Middle Years Programme.

IB Learner Profile
Aim of the organization
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment.

These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
Elements of PYP
Transdisciplinary Themes
The PYP curriculum is divided into three interrelated components and in
keeping with PYP commitment to inquiry, these three components are
expressed in the form of the following three open-ended questions about
student learning.
Assessment of curriculum
Assessing the result of inquiry as well as the process of inquiry are important objectives of the programme. There are two types of assessment in the PYP:

Formative assessment
is embedded in the teaching and learning process and therefore occurs in the daily routine of a classroom. It aims to support students to become better learners and helps teachers to plan the next stage of learning.

Summative assessment
occurs at the end of the teaching and learning process and provides students with opportunities to demonstrate what they have learned in a new context. It aims to give teachers, students and parents clear, evidence-based insight into students' understanding at a particular moment in time.

All assessment in the Primary Years Programme is carried out internally by teachers within the school. The IB does not set examinations nor does it moderate grades in the PYP.

Students in their final year of the programme are expected to carry out an extended, collaborative inquiry project, known as the
, under the guidance of their teachers.
The exhibition represents a significant event in the life of both the school and student, synthesizing the essential elements of the programme and sharing them with the whole school community. It is an opportunity for students to exhibit the attributes of the Learner profile that have been developing throughout their engagement with the programme. It is a culminating experience marking the transition from PYP to further steps in education.
Schools are given considerable flexibility in their choice of real-life issues or problems to be explored or investigated in the exhibition.
