IB or International Baccalaureate is an educational programme developed in 1968 with the support of UNESCO. It covers all levels of study:
In this article, we will tell you more about the Primary Years Programme.
The IB Primary Years Programme is designed for children between the ages of 3 and 12 and aims to educate young researchers, both academically and socially. The programme relies on problem-based learning together with an individual approach. It has absorbed the best that has been developed and supplemented according to the educational research data and the experience of leading international schools.
The PYP authors argue that this modern educational practice is future-oriented and empowers children to meet the challenges of our rapidly-changing world.
The IB elementary curriculum includes 6 subject areas:
Pupils also study 6 important transdisciplinary themes:
By studying these topics of global importance, children expand their knowledge, learn to define and understand meanings in all subject areas, between them and beyond.
In the lessons, pupils are encouraged to take initiative and responsibility for their own learning. The teacher poses a problem to the students and some contradiction arises between the new requirement and an insufficient level of knowledge, skills and abilities. While trying to solve the problem, PYP learners seek to fill these gaps.
IB PYP is based on the idea that students are responsible for their own learning and should actively participate in the educational process. Improving their own efficiency is considered important. Those who strive for self-sufficiency are interested in their own learning.
Particular attention is paid to building student-student and student-teacher relationships in order to create a harmonious learning community that teaches and learns.
At BISM, primary classes are taught according to the national educational programmes of England and Wales. We strive to give our students a classic English education, as we are a member of the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) and teach to its high standards. But we approve and appreciate the International Baccalaureate programme and offer IB DP to our graduating students at School 3. This diploma makes it possible to enter almost any university in the world.
