Introduction to the PYP


Programme of Inquiry

The Primary Years Programme is organized around six transdisciplinary themes that students engage with throughout the year.

  • Who we are (WWA)
  • How we organize ourselves (HWOO)
  • How the world works (HTWW)
  • How we express ourselves (HWEO)
  • Where we are in place and time (WWAIPAT)
  • Sharing the planet (STP)

Here are the units that the elementary students are engaged with in the 2017-18 school year. (Click to download a PDF file.)

Students engage with these units through the inquiry cycle, which gives them the chance to tune in to the topic, find out more about it, sort out their understanding of the topic, research further to consolidate their learning, make conclusions, and take action.
