From 6 to 10 years old – from Year 1 to Year 5
The educational project is designed based on the seven objectives for the student, which give continuity and coherence between the stages, no matter which itinerary the student chooses.
The curricular and pedagogical framework is the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP), in which students work on six units of enquiry per year.
These units of enquiry deal with a central theme that serves as a common framework for acquiring knowledge, concepts, and skills of traditional disciplinary areas, but in a transversal way and giving them meaning when applying them to their daily lives.
The cross-cutting issues that they study each year are: who we are, where we are in time and space, how we express ourselves, how the world works, how we organise ourselves, and how we share the planet.
Enquiry hours in class are equally divided between English and Spanish enquiry teaching staff. Students continue to learn Chinese or Arabic (the parents choose upon joining the Centre) and French is introduced as a fourth language, including Drama in this language.
Students follow the music programme, extending in Year 2 to play a symphony orchestra instrument, taking into account their most outstanding skills.
At the end of Year 5, students could reach a level comparable to Year 4 of elementary conservatory education.
In Year 4, our students work through Design Thinking on their own idea in “Conexión Eureka!” and finish the stage in Year 5 with an emotional day of the PYP Project Fair, which families and other guests attend.
