PRIMARY YEARS PROGRAMME (PYP) (NURSERY - GR V)
Pre-Primary and Primary Years Programme (PYP) of The International Baccalaureate.
The Primary Years Programme (PYP) at Hill Spring International School works to develop the child and build within them the passion for life-long learning. PYP teachers and students generate questions with which to conduct inquiry into significant content. Through this inquiry process, students gain essential knowledge and skills which encourages them to engage in responsible action. All of this is done in a climate which fosters positive attitudes and develops a concept of internationalism.
Understanding Units of Inquiry:
The Primary Years Program at Hill Spring International School allows students to participate in large, transdisciplinary units each year, called Units of Inquiry (UOI).
Through these Units of Inquiry, the homeroom becomes a centre of structured inquiry through which students acquire and practice skills and gain new knowledge. These units are outlined in our school - wide Program of Inquiry (POI) and are carefully designed to gradually build from one year to the next as a student progresses through school.
