ICE PYP Handbook

What is the PYP?

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) is designed for students aged 3-12. The PYP prepares students to become active, caring, lifelong learners who demonstrate respect for themselves and others and have the capacity to participate in the world around them. It focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both within and beyond the classroom. The PYP curriculum contains three key components, which explain how students learn, how educators teach, and the principles and practice of effective assessment within the programme.
The Primary Years Programme (PYP) is underpinned by six transdisciplinary themes around which learning is planned.
These are:
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.
These themes are selected for their relevance to the real world. They are described as transdisciplinary because they focus on issues that go across subject areas.
The transdisciplinary themes help teachers to develop a programme of inquiry. Teachers work together to develop investigations into important ideas, which require a substantial and high level of involvement on the part of students.
Through the PYP curriculum framework, schools ensure that students examine each theme.
The PYP is committed to structured, purposeful inquiry that engages students actively in their own learning. The programme supports students’ efforts to construct meaning from the world around them by:
drawing on their prior knowledge
providing provocation through new experiences
providing opportunities for reflection and consolidation.

En quoi consiste le PP?

Le Programme primaire (PP) du Baccalauréat International (IB) s’adresse aux élèves âgés de 3 à 12 ans. Le PP prépare les élèves à devenir des apprenants permanents qui sont actifs et altruistes, respectueux des autres comme d’eux-mêmes, et capables de prendre part au monde autour d’eux. Le programme se concentre sur le développement complet de l’élève et de ses capacités de recherche au sein de la salle de classe et au-delà.
Le Programme primaire (PP) du Baccalauréat International® (IB) s’appuie sur six thèmes transdisciplinaires autour desquels l’apprentissage est structuré.
En voici la liste.
Qui nous sommes
Où nous nous situons dans l’espace et le temps
Comment nous nous exprimons
Comment le monde fonctionne
Comment nous nous organisons
Le partage de la planète
Ces thèmes ont été choisis pour leur pertinence dans le monde réel. Ils sont qualifiés de transdisciplinaires parce qu’ils se concentrent sur des sujets qui peuvent être étudiés dans l’ensemble des disciplines.
Les thèmes transdisciplinaires aident les enseignants à élaborer un programme de recherche efficace. Les enseignants travaillent ensemble pour concevoir des recherches sur les idées importantes, qui exigent un investissement considérable et de haut niveau de la part des élèves.
Le cadre pédagogique du PP permet aux établissements scolaires de s’assurer que les élèves examinent chaque thème.
Le PP propose une recherche structurée et réfléchie qui amène les élèves à s’investir dans leur propre apprentissage. Il soutient les efforts fournis par les élèves pour construire du sens à partir du monde qui les entoure en :
s’appuyant sur leurs connaissances antérieures ;
fournissant des sollicitations sous forme de nouvelles expériences ;
donnant des occasions de réflexion et de consolidation de leur apprentissage.

Attitudes

While recognizing the importance of knowledge, concepts and skills, these alone do not make an internationally minded person. It is vital that there is also focus on the development of personal attitudes towards people, towards the environment and towards learning, attitudes that contribute to the well-being of the individual and of the group. By deciding that attitudes need to be an essential element of the programme, the PYP is making a commitment to a values-laden curriculum.

Appreciation: Appreciating the wonder and beauty of the world and its people.

Commitment: Being committed to their own learning, persevering and showing self-discipline and responsibility.

Confidence: Feeling confident in their ability as learners, having the courage to take risks, applying what they have learned and making appropriate decisions and choices.

Cooperation: Cooperating, collaborating, and leading or following as the situation demands.

Creativity: Being creative and imaginative in their thinking and in their approach to problems and dilemmas.

Curiosity: Being curious about the nature of learning, about the world, its people and cultures.

Empathy: Imagining themselves in another’s situation in order to understand his or her reasoning and emotions, so as to be open-minded and reflective about the perspectives of others.

Enthusiasm: Enjoying learning and willingly putting the effort into the process.
