Parents guide to the Primary Years Programme at LPS

Students in the PYP (grades k-6) explore knowledge, skills and concepts across all disciplines with an emphasis on inquiry-based learning. Their studies are organized into six themes of local and global significance. This culturally perse framework helps students to understand the interconnectedness of subject areas and how local and global issues relate to themselves and their environment. Classrooms engage in “units of inquiry” under a theme. The unit of inquiry will have a central idea and lines of inquiry to guide students in their investigation. As such, the PYP offers a “balance between learning aboutand throughsubject areas, and learning beyond them.” The Units of inquiry for comprise our school’s Programme of Inquiry.
