Students explore big concepts through different subject lenses and are encouraged to make connections across, as well as within, subject areas, wherever possible. Subject groups within the PYP that are taught in the Upper Primary include: languages, mathematics, science, the arts, social studies, religious education and personal, social and physical education. The program of inquiry is carefully planned by teachers and is designed to give students the skills to take the lead in their own learning. Together with our students we establish what each child knows, what knowledge s/he has access to, and what knowledge s/he can build. We explore the world in which we live, ask questions, make discoveries and develop new understandings.
Self-esteem is an important part of education and is addressed in the student’s learning. In the Upper Primary we continue to build upon the strengths and give the students the confidence to overcome their weaknesses. In doing so, we aim to achieve a positive learning environment where success is constantly attainable.
