IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) School

Taught in over 109 countries around the world, the IB PYP curriculum is designed for Graders 1 to 5 (age 5 to 12 years) and is uniquely adaptable to state and national standards. The Primary Years Programme (PYP) curriculum nurtures and develops students to be active participants in their own learning journey.


The IB Primary Years Programme is an inquiry based, trans-disciplinary framework, that encourages students to deepen their learning by developing conceptual understanding of knowledge and skills. The PYP Education Programme - is a way to actively participate in their education as they explore local and global issues and opportunities in real-life contexts through the PYP curriculum.

Student-Centred Approach

At GIIS, a leading IB primary school in Singapore, we have designed our IB PYP Curriculum activities keeping our students at the centre of the learning process. The idea is to encourage them to be involved through active participation and engage in an inquiry-based approach, even as teachers act as facilitators and observers in this entire process of knowledge gathering.

Transdisciplinary Approach

A transdisciplinary method complements our IB Primary Years Programme and allows students to discover answers to key questions such as “who am I, where do I belong, what is the importance of the environment around me”. This method weaves a story which moves from subject to subject to teach the students the essence of each topic. The framework directs students to apply the acquired knowledge to think, reflect, analyse, problem solve and evaluate.

Collaborative Learning

IB PYP Program is designed to engage students in projects and assignments, which teach them to work in groups, to collaborate and to share information with each other in order to enhance their knowledge. The PYP Education Programme focuses on the development of students as life-long learners. Learning happens in a fun and interactive manner and students learn the importance of teamwork and discussions to solve problems.
