Elementary School

Age range 6 -12

Learners at the elementary school maintain high quality education within the framework of the Primary Years Programme (PYP). The inquiry-based environment provokes the learners to question big ideas, investigate issues, consider a range of possibilities, and reflect on findings. Learners develop critical and meta-cognitive thinking as they pose real life problems and approach them. Learners in their final primary year culminate their PYP experience through the PYP Exhibition (see below).

What is the Primary Years Programme (PYP)?

The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) is designed for students aged 3 to 12. It is a transdisciplinary programme of international education designed to foster the development of the whole child. Touching hearts as well as minds, it encompasses the academic development in addition to the social, physical, and emotional well-being of children having diverse personal needs and cultural backgrounds.
The PYP draws on research and best practice from a range of national systems with a wealth of knowledge and experience from international schools to create a relevant, engaging, challenging and significant educational framework for all children.
The aim of this programme is to nurture citizens of the world who are inquirers, thinkers, communicators, risk-takers, knowledgeable, principled, caring, balanced and reflective.
The curriculum framework consists of five essential elements: concepts, knowledge, skills, attitudes, and action. The knowledge component is developed through inquiries into six transdisciplinary themes of global significance, supported and balanced by six subject areas illustrated in the model below:

The PYP Exhibition

The PYP Exhibition is an important event that unites students, teachers, parents, and other members in the school community in a collaborative experience that incorporates all essential elements of the PYP. Celebrating their transition from the primary to the middle school, the students culminate their PYP experience and exhibit the attributes of the IB learner profile they have been developing throughout their engagement in the primary years. Through the PYP Exhibition, the students engage in an in-depth collaborative inquiry into community issues of local and global significance. Learners have the opportunity to apply the acquired skills and attitudes in a conceptual inquiry that they plan and carry out. This event also demonstrates how students can take action towards their own learning.

الفنّ هو تعبير ابداعي للأفكار والمشاعر والتّجارب البشريّة

الفنّ هو تعبير ابداعي للأفكار والمشاعر والتّجارب البشريّة من خلال الوسائل المختلفة، مثل الموسيقى والرّسم والنّحت والتّمثيل والعمارة والفنون التّشكيليّة وغيرها.
من هنا انطلق المتعلّمون وعكسوا نظرتهم للفنّ بطرق مختلفة.

محور كيف نعبّر عن أنفسنا

يُعدُّ الفنّ مكوّنًا أساسيًّا من مكوّنات الثّقافة الإنسانيّة وجسرًا للتّواصل يلامس الرّوح ويخاطب الفكر، وهو عابرٌ لحدود اللّغات وفي علاقة تكامليّة مع القضايا الاجتماعيّة. وبناء على ماتقدّم وفي إطار العمل على محور “كيف نعبّر عن أنفسنا” ، استضاف متعلّمو الصّف الرّابع الأساسيّ بفرعيه الانكليزي والفرنسي، الفنان التّشكيلي والنّاشط الثّقافي الزّميل الأستاذ “زاهر البزري” بهدف الاطّلاع على فلسفته ورسالته الفنيّة الثّقافيّة.>>>
