Primary School Written Curriculum

  • Primary School Written Curriculum

    The Written Curriculum of the Primary School Programme are made up of the Essential Elements of the programme. The written documentation representing the learning of the programme are primarily found in the Programme of Inquiry (PoI) and the scope and sequence for each of the subjects included in the Primary School Programme.

    The PoI is a collection of the units taught in each grade level under each of the Transdisciplinary Themes. For EY 1 and 2 this is a minimum of four Units of Inquiry (UoI), including a unit under Who We Are and a unit under How We Express Ourselves. In EY 3 to Grade 5 the requirement of the IB is that there are six units made up of one UoI under each theme.

    The Written Curriculum also includes six single subjects: language, mathematics, science, social studies, the arts, and personal, social and physical education. At Albanian College we are using the Primary School Programme published scope and sequences as the basis for our written curriculum. These scope and sequence documents give the basic coverage needed and the teachers are working to fill in more specific grade level information for each of the subjects.
