IB Learner Profile
Six transdisciplinary themes guide learning throughout the PYP years. These globally significant themes provide the opportunity to incorporate both local and global issues and enable students to "step out" beyond the confines of subject areas and instead see the world from a wider perspective.
As an IB candidate school*, Hamilton Hill International Kindergarten develops our programme of inquiry (POI) based on the six transdisciplinary themes:
- Who we are
- Where we are in place and time
- How we express ourselves
- How the world works
- How we organize ourselves
- Sharing the planet
In each theme is unit of Inquiry (UOI) and Hamilton Hill provides 4 units of inquiry for our early year learners.
