PYP Corner

Central to the philosophy of the PYP is the principle that purposeful, structured inquiry is a powerful vehicle for learning that promotes meaning and understanding, and challenges students to engage with significant ideas. Hence in the PYP there is also a commitment to a concept-driven curriculum as a means of supporting that inquiry (Making the PYP Happen, 2009). We do this through the key concepts. Next to the profiles and attitudes, the key concepts are a foundational piece to the PYP. There are eight key concepts and our teachers use them to drive inquire and instruction.

Have you heard your child ask questions like Why, Where, and How? We encourage them to ask questions starting at a young age and teach them how to structure their questions to kick start their inquiry and drive their learning.
