The PYP promotes the education of the whole person, emphasizing intellectual, personal, emotional and social growth through all domains of knowledge, leading to a life of active, responsible citizenship.
At its heart there is a commitment to structured inquiry as the leading vehicle for life-long learning.
Six transdisciplinary themes provide the framework for the exploration of knowledge during each school year. Teachers and students are guided by these themes as they design units of work for exploration and study. Students explore all subject areas through these themes, often in ways that transcend conventional subject boundaries. In the process, they develop an understanding of important concepts, acquire essential skills and knowledge, develop particular attitudes and learn how to take socially responsible action.
PY2 students wanted to know how life has changed in Norway, so they visited the Oslo Folk Museum.
