An Introduction to Grade One
Michael Hughes

Today we welcomed parents whose daughters will be starting in first grade next August. We talked about teaching and learning in grade 1 and explored the PYP framework together. 

This morning we held an information session for parents who will be new to the Elementary School next August.  Together we explored:

  • The Primary Years Programme (PYP) curriculum framework
  • What a typical day looks like in first grade
  • Teaching and learning in the PYP
  • Resources used in different subject disciplines
  • Assessment in grade 1
  • Home / school connections 

We would like to thank all parents who took time out of their public holiday to attend the session. You can access the slides from today's session, below.
