IB Primary Years Programme
In Grade 5 students continue the inquiry-based learning of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. In this interdisciplinary approach, subject content – English, Maths, Science and Humanities – are addressed and discovered through an inquiry into one central theme. There are five central themes in the school year, culminating in the exhibition, where students select a topic of interest to them and generate an interactive presentation around it. This exhibition – presented to fellow students and adults alike – enables the students to utilise the key competencies they have learned across the whole Primary Years Programme, such as research, self-management, and communication skills.
