Primary Years Programme at Apeejay School, International Wing, comprises the essential elements of knowledge, conceptual understandings, skills, attitudes and actions that encourage international mindedness and global citizenship. These elements feature collaboratively planned units of inquiry which follow six trans-disciplinary themes. These themes allow ‘traditional’ subjects to be explored through interconnected personal, local and global perspectives.
Core subject areas including Languages, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Art, are integrated around these themes which make the programme of inquiry trans-disciplinary in nature, enabling the learners to explore different concepts across various subject areas. The pedagogical approach is focused on the principles of constructivism, encouraging learners to construct their own meaning and take the responsibility of their learning process. A variety of assessment techniques such as group projects, presentations, quizzes, blogs, etc. are used to measure progress and attainment of students. Together, teachers and staff create a challenging curriculum based on research exceeding international standards.
These elements interconnect to meet the personal, social, emotional and physical needs of the child as a whole.
