The Primary Department implements the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) curriculum that focuses on students becoming internationally-minded and productive global citizens. Throughout the year, the students participate in six transdisciplinary Units of Inquiry, following the themes:

  • Who We Are
  • Where we are in place and time
  • How We express ourselves
  • How the world works
  • How we organise ourselves

In addition to the major core subjects, such as Language, Math, Social Studies, and Sciences, which are covered throughout the Units, our students have weekly session(s) in:

  • Performing Arts (Dance, Drama and Music)
  • Visual Arts
  • Physical, Social and Personal Education (PSPE)
  • Physical Education (PE)
  • Swimming
  • Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
  • Languages: French, Kiswahili and Family Language

Assessment:
Authentic learning cannot always be demonstrated through traditional tests or exams. Students at AIS are assessed in a variety of ways, including tests, projects, oral presentations and written reports. Assessment in IBPYP is “criterion-referenced.” This means students are scored against standards, not against each other. Emphasis will be placed on rubrics to assess student learning.

PYPX:
Our students conclude their PYP journey with the PYP Exhibition in PYP6. Students use all the skills they learned throughout the PYP to solve a problem within one of the transdisciplinary themes. We focus on teaching students how to develop the skills necessary to utilise the information they gain in the later stages of their education.
