The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) is the curriculum framework for all children from Kinder to Year 6 at Morris. It focuses on the development of the whole child, offering a framework to meet the academic, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of each person.
At the heart of the PYP is structured, purposeful and planned inquiry that actively engages children. The General Capabilities and explicit learning outcomes from the Australian Curriculum are used to support the planning process. Students are an integral part of the learning process and are encouraged to become independent learners. We aim to develop children’s intercultural understanding and promote global citizenship.
The Program of Inquiry (PoI) incorporates all areas of learning. Classroom and specialist teachers work together to plan rich programs. All teachers from Kinder to Year 6 are involved in developing the PoI and reviewing it annually.
There are seven major learning areas in Morris – Language; Mathematics; Humanities and Social Sciences; Science; The Arts; Library; and Social, Emotional and Physical Education. For more information, please see the Morris Curriculum book.
