IB-PRIMARY YEARS PROGRAMME
The IB-PYP curriculum is a curriculum, a philosophy and a methodology for young learners from Pre-KG to Grade 5.
In this programme, the emphasis is placed on transdisciplinary and inquiry-based learning.
The core focus at Ajman Academy is learning and teaching in a caring, safe and welcoming environment where students are challenged to strive for personal excellence. The school believes in encouraging children to enquire.
They are encouraged to do research work and question themselves: How? Why? and When?
HOW IS THE PROGRAMME TAUGHT?
The most significant and distinctive feature of the IB Primary Years Programme is the six transdisciplinary themes. These themes are about issues that have meaning for and are important to all of us. The programme offers a balance between learning about or through the subject areas and learning beyond them. The six themes of global significance create a transdisciplinary framework that allows students to “step up” beyond the confines of learning within subject areas.
- Who we are
- Where we are in place and time
- How we express ourselves
- How the world works
- How we organize ourselves
- Sharing the Planet
The programme puts great emphasis on learning about these transdisciplinary themes. Every theme is addressed each year by all students. The themes provide the opportunity to incorporate local, global and moral issues into the curriculum.
