Primary Education (PYP)

During this stage we continued with the development of our pupils towards an IB profile: inquisitive, open-minded, thoughtful, communicative, upstanding, reflective, informed and instructed, audacious and well-rounded with a sense of solidarity.

It is fundamental that we instil in them work and study routines and habits that help them in the transition to Middle School and Baccalaureate. There continues to be a special emphasis on fostering reading and oral written expression in a multidisciplinary way. It is also important at this stage to create a healthy lifestyle, with physical and sporting activity and that’s why we include swimming lessons during the school hours.

Inquisitiveness is the fundamental pillar of this stage for ensuring the pupil is capable of reflecting on their strong and weak points with the aim of improving their learning and thus fulfilling the maximum potential. For this reason it is necessary to ask questions, investigate and reflect on the knowledge they acquire and, in this way, develop their critical and analytical capacities.

All of this is achieved once again, as in the case of Preschool education, by placing the pupil at the centre of the learning process, with the teacher as a guide in the Units of Inquiry and not merely a transmitter of knowledge. Learning is carried out through the acquisition of knowledge and concepts and fostering their skills. In the future this will help them tackle unforeseen situations in the right manner, assume new challenges and generate ideas. The objective is for the pupil to acquire skills they remember and that serve them in the future, that is, engage in  long-lasting learning; hoping that pupils transfer this learning into day-to-day life through their actions.

To achieve this, it is necessary to continue with the educational development that we carry out using technological tools and in the English language.

Technological tools

From 3rd year Primary, computer lab classes are scheduled. From 5th year of Primary we include iPads, with which pupils develop their knowledge and skills with digital textbooks prepared by the teachers of the centre themselves. They include videos, graphics and interactive activities for unlimited learning.

Languages

English is taught in small groups with a special focus on conversation. What’s more, 5th year pupils can practice the language skills they acquire by participating in the Language Exchange in Tulsa, Oklahoma (USA). There they attend the Henry Zarrow International School and the Eisenhower International School.

When they complete 6th year of Primary, pupils complete a project they work on throughout the year, demonstrating their communication and inquisitive skills, their knowledge and the concepts acquired. This project ends with the PEP exhibition of the projects, where the whole Education Community can witness the learnings of this specific activity.

Interview with the principal

In class diary, Juan Luis Yagüe, CEO of the Casvi Group of Schools wanted to talk to us, on this occasion, about the aftermath of confinement in educational and family environments; the digital transformation that it has caused; and the great opportunities that have appeared.
