The aim of the PYP, to create a curriculum that is engaging, relevant, challenging and significant, is achieved through structured inquiry and the development of five essential elements: knowledge, concepts, skills, attitudes and action.
Knowledge – What do we want students to know?
While the PYP acknowledges the importance of traditional subject areas (language, mathematics, social studies, science, personal, social and physical education, and arts), it also recognizes the importance of acquiring a set of skills in context and of exploring content which transcends the boundaries of the traditional subjects and is relevant to students.
The PYP has six transdisciplinary themes that provide the framework for learning. These themes are globally significant and support the acquisition of knowledge, concepts and skills of the traditional subjects. They are revisited throughout the students’ time in the PYP.
Concepts – What do we want the students to understand?
Through the units of inquiry the students explore eight key concepts which support the inquiry process. The exploration of concepts leads to a deeper understanding and allows students to easily transfer knowledge learnt in one area of the curriculum to another. Concepts are revisited throughout the year and across the grades ensuring a deepening of conceptual understanding.
Skills : What do we want students to be able to do?
Throughout their learning in the Primary School, students acquire and apply a set of skills which are valuable not only for the teaching and learning that goes on within classroom but also in life outside the school. The PYP identifies five sets of transdisciplinary skiils :
- Thinking skiils
- Social skiils
- Communication skills
- Self-management skills
- Research skills
Attitudes : What do we want students to value and demonstrate?
In addition to developing the attributes of the Learner profile, the Primary School encourage students and adults to develop the PYP Attitude that contribute to the well-being of the individual and of the group. Students develop personal attitudes towards people, the environment and learning. At MI Ma’arif NU Pucang we encourage : appreciation, commitment, confidence, cooperation, creativity, curiosity, emphaty, enthuasiasm, independence, integrity, respect, and tolerance.
Action : How do we want the students to act?
In the PYP , it is believed that education must extend beyond the intellectual to include not only socially responsible attitudes but also thoughful and appropriate action. Students at MI Ma’arif NU Pucang are encourage to take action as a result of their inquiry. Action can be a demonstrantion of a sense of responsibility and respect for themselves, others and the environment. Action usually begins in a small way but arises from genuine concern and commitment. Action as a result of learning may be considered the most significant summative assessment of the efficacy of the programme. Action often happens beyond the classroom, and teachers at MI Ma’arif NU Pucang are always keen to know about the action that the students take outside of school.
