“A student-centred approach to education for children aged 3-12.”
Our Primary Years Program challenges our students to think for themselves and take responsibility for their learning as they explore local and global issues and opportunities in a real-life context through its inquiry-led, transdisciplinary framework.
Study shows that there are PYP schools and students in about 109 countries all over the world and we are proud to say that Harvest International School is one of them as the Best IB Schools in Bangalore.
The program was first introduced by the International Baccalaureate® (IB), in 1997 for students of age 3-12 years.
The Primary Years Programme (PYP) nurtures independent and collaborative learners, encouraging every student to have a voice, choice and ownership in their own learning. The framework provides students in the early and primary years with opportunities to experience a coherent and balanced curriculum.
PYP is a holistic learning experience that integrates socio-emotional, physical and cognitive development. PYP classroom is a dynamic environment that promotes experiential learning through play, discovery and exploration.
PYP framework helps our students in developing academic, social and emotional wellbeing, focusing on international-mindedness and a sense of belonging to local and global communities.
Through the programme’s commitment to transdisciplinary learning, our students appreciate the knowledge, conceptual understandings, skills and personal attributes as a connected whole.
The transdisciplinary themes, that are used to organize the curriculum, mark the starting point of student inquiries. They provide authentic and real-life contexts for students to explore and engage with rich dialogues and ongoing collaboration to build an understanding of themselves, their wider community and the world.
Student-led conferences promote a school culture of engagement as students play an active role in reflecting on their own learning. These conferences allow students to be a part of the conversation about their academic and social goals and are an opportunity to discuss how the teacher and parents can help the student succeed.
Student-led conferences encourage our students to think critically about their own abilities and achievements and reflect upon their own actions.
As the Best IB Schools In Bangalore, we at Harvest are committed to using the PYP framework to organize our curriculum, policies and communities. We use the Programme standards and practices (PSP) framework to develop the foundations and evolution of the school that support effective practice and exemplifies the IB mission.
Reflection: An omnipresent element of IB students, is to reflect upon their journey across every step, not only just what they’ve learned about but also ongoing self-assessment of Approaches to Learning skills, peer assessment & group reflection. By the end of the PYP journey, the students are expected to reflect on their whole experience. With a consistent record of reflective thinking kept throughout the PYP years, students present their culminating Project PYP Exhibition to the learning community and beyond upholding our motto Education Beyond Classrooms.
