Grade 5 students have presented the PYP Exhibition at Casvi International American School which marks the end of their Primary School years and the end of the first IB program, the PYP. The PYP (Primary Years Program) of the International Baccalaureate forms students as active participants in a lifelong learning journey. The PYP offers a transdisciplinary, inquiry-based curriculum framework that builds conceptual understanding.
All IB programs include a culminating or consolidating learning experience in their final year: the PYP exhibition; the personal project in the Middle Years Program (MYP) and the extended essay in the Diploma Program (DP).
The PYP exhibition is a collaborative experience that culminates the final year of the PYP. In order to develop this work, students are required to research and document a topic that is important or of interest to them and how it can be useful to the community. In this case, the project topic was related to the unit of inquiry “How we express ourselves”.
The PYP curriculum framework is premised on the premise that students are agents of their own learning. Each student uses his or her own initiative to learn through inquiry, reflection and conceptual understanding.
At Casvi International American School we focus on the integral development of each student. We offer them a transformative experience through which students actively participate in an integrated and continuous assessment.
Through the six globally relevant transdisciplinary themes, students strengthen their knowledge and skills in all disciplines.
