What is IB PYP?

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Primary Years Programme is a curriculum framework designed for students aged 3 to 12 by the International Baccalaureate Organization.

It prepares students for the intellectual challenges of further education and their future careers, focusing on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. The curriculum is broadly encapsulated in six Transdisciplinary Themes which make the Programme of Inquiry. They are: Who we are, Where we are in Place and Time, How we express ourselves, How the world works, How we organize ourselves, and Sharing the planet.

SNIS follows the IB PYP curriculum framework. Our students explore a variety of subjects including Languages, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Personal, Social and Physical Education, Information and Communication Technologies in addition to various kinds of Arts and Sports.

IB PYP is a concept and skill driven inquiry-based transdisciplinary programme where internationally trained teachers guide students to acquire knowledge, develop conceptual understanding and skills enabling the demonstration of positive attitudes to help them take responsible action. This is achieved by conducting in-depth research through books and internet using computers and iPads. Participating in surveys and field trips, interacting with subject experts, teachers and students from different parts of the world and reflecting to improve is a regular feature of our students’ learning.

Like the International Baccalaureate Organization, SNIS aims to develop internationally minded citizens who will help to create a better and more peaceful world through education.
