Parents guide to the Primary Years Program at LPS

Students in the PYP (grades K-5) 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 inclusive 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 each 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 about and through subject areas, and learning beyond them.” The Units of Inquiry comprise our school’s Programme of Inquiry.
