PYP Parent Forum

Dear Parents and Friends of the ELC and Elementary School,

The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme is implemented throughout the ELC and Elementary School at ISBerne and our teachers are keen to share some information with you about how they teach your child each day. As a result, you are invited to attend an information forum designed to give you a better understanding of what we teach and the ways we teach it at ISBerne.

When: Wednesday 23 October 2013-17:30 until 19:00.
Where: Elementary School library
Who: Parents. This is not a session for children.

After an initial introduction, you will attend two break-out information sessions of your choice. These sessions will focus on a particular area of the PYP at ISBerne. Our aim is for parents to come away from each session with a comprehensive understanding of their selected area of learning in the PYP. Further questions can then be addressed to their child’s homeroom teacher at a time they jointly decide upon. We will offer these sessions again in early 2014 so you will have the chance to attend other sessions.

Please indicate which two sessions you would like to attend. Follow this link to enroll in your areas of choice.

  • PYP and the U.K. Curriculum: For parents interested in comparisons between the UK National Curriculum and the IBPYP.
  • PYP for U.S. students: For parents interested in comparisons between the U.S. education system and the IBPYP.
  • Mathematics and the PYP: For parents interested in how we teach mathematics in the PYP
  • Literacy and the PYP: For parents interested in how we teach reading and writing in the PYP.Additional languages and the PYP: For parents interested in how we teach French and German at ISBerne.

Each session lasts about 30 minutes. For further information, please do not hesitate to contact me at the Elementary School.

Kind regards,

Mr. Jackson
