PRIMARY YEARS

At Amity International School Amsterdam students in Primary Years (6-11 years old) learn and inquire about the world around them through the International BaccalaureateÒ (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP). This programme promotes the exploration of global and local issues through relevant and engaging units of inquiry. These units are guided by six transdisciplinary themes and integrate learning in language, mathematics, science, social studies and the arts, as well as developing personal, social and physical education. Learning experiences are meaningful, inclusive and multi-sensory, in order to provoke the students’ natural curiosity and interests. The PYP encourages students to take responsibility for their own learning and challenges them to become active world citizens through the IB learner profile. The whole school community are actively involved in creating a holistic learning environment.
