PYP - Laying the Foundation for Lifelong Learning
The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) for children aged 3 - 12 nurtures and develops young students as caring, active participants in a lifelong journey of learning.
The PYP offers an inquiry-based, transdisciplinary curriculum framework that builds conceptual understanding. It is a student-centred approach to education for children aged 3-12. It reflects the best educational research, thought leadership and experience derived from IB Schools.
The PYP has evolved to become a world leader in future-focused education. The PYP is an example of the best educational practice globally, responding to the challenges and opportunities facing young students in our rapidly changing world.
The PYP curriculum is rooted in the spirit of inquiry. Weaving scientific inquiry in the curriculum at elementary stages is crucial. As a child grows, the capacity for perception and investigation also grows. In the dedicated scientific inquiry session, students hone their scientific skills such as generating hypotheses, predicting results, observing, gathering relevant data, and reaching a conclusion. The objective of inculcating the skills of scientific inquiry is to enable students to use the tools and techniques for a better future. They must be able to work towards sustainable development goals with the help of scientific methods. We aim to create a holistic environment where science is appreciated by all students.
Inquiry-based learning helps students to comprehend the concepts they are learning and their application to real-world situations. Through self-directed inquiries, students have the opportunity to uncover knowledge through exploration, hands-on experiences, and discussions, leading to a deeper understanding and personal connection to the material.
Literature circles give students the opportunity to talk, read and discuss books with their peers. Through these conversations, they build community, learn critical speaking and listening behaviours, deepen their understanding of literature, and recognise reading as fun.
Our children use critical thinking skills as they reflect on the characters, events, literary devices, and personal connections to the story. Responding to the text through structured discussions helps students gain more thoughtful insight into the story.
The PYP curriculum framework begins with the premise that students are agents of their own learning and partners in the learning process. It prioritises people and their relationships to build a strong learning community.
PYP students use their initiative to take responsibility and ownership of their learning. By learning through inquiry and reflecting on their own learning, PYP students develop knowledge, conceptual understandings, skills and the attributes of the IB Learner profile to make a difference in their own lives, their communities, and beyond.
The PYP focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in school and in the world beyond. The PYP offers a transformative experience for students, teachers and whole school communities and delivers excellent outcomes by providing an education that is engaging, relevant, challenging and significant.
PYP learners know how to take ownership of their learning, collaborating with teachers to deepen understanding and increase their confidence and self-motivation. Through actively engaging in integrated ongoing assessment, they become effective, self-regulated learners who can act on constructive feedback.
A wide range of co-curricular activities is administered at Adani International School to ensure a well-rounded education for all students. This includes exposure to a wide range of academic activities and extracurricular activities appropriate to the levels of student capacity, class and age.
