Curriculum

Foreign Language

The Spanish program at Clubview is designed to introduce students to the language and culture of Spanish speakers throughout the world. Music, art, dance, drama, and technology are an integral part of our lessons to engage and challenge students. Our program supports IB PYP instructional practices for additional languages through content based instruction that creates a deeper understanding of units of inquiry and broadens the perspective of students to include understanding of cultural practices and products of Spanish speakers throughout the world.

Students create amazing works of Art using a wide range of techniques and media while working to enhance their visual problem solving skills. A variety of different concepts and themes are explored throughout each grade level. Throughout this process, students continually engage in contextual discussions on past masters, various cultures, and contemporary pioneers. Above all, we encourage a sense of self and a strong work ethic.

PYP Exhibition

The PYP exhibition provides the culminating experience of the learner’s engagement with the PYP. It unites the teachers, learners, and parents of the class in an activity that captures the essence of the PYP: transdisciplinary inquiry conducted in a spirit of personal and shared responsibility. It marks a rite of passage, both symbolic and actual, from PYP to MYP. Most importantly it is a celebration; an even in which synthesizes all that is best in the PYP and shares it with the whole school community.

The PYP exhibition is an extended collaborative inquiry which is undertaken by students in their final year of PYP. It is suggested that the exhibition replace the unit of inquiry addressing the theme “Sharing the Planet” during the final year. The subject of the exhibition inquiry should be a real –world issue or problem, local or global, which is of sufficient scope and significance to warrant an extended investigation. The class generates relevant and realistic proposals for solutions to the selected issue and therefor the exhibition requires students to apply their learning of previous years.

The exhibition should represent a significant event in the life of a school; encapsulating the essence of the PYP and encouraging younger students to look forward to their final year in the PYP programme. Some of our previous IB exhibitions were: Homelessness Is Not Hopelessness, Calling for a Cure for Cancer, Military Means the World to Me, Books for Belize, Pay It Forward, and H2O for Life.

Stay tuned for the announcement of this year’s exhibition theme.
