PYP Curriculum Map

The aims of this PYP long term plan are:

1. Expose students to a range of age-appropriate games/activities/sports.

2. Emphasize reflection and team-building throughout the year for each level.

3. Mix a variety of international activities with local favorites.

4. Have clear progression year to year, not repeating assessments or same activities each year.

5. Aim to collaborate with the homeroom teacher to create a transdisciplinary unit when meaningful connections exist.
