Sharing the Planet

Working with the trans-disciplinary theme of Sharing the Planet is a unique feature of the PYP curriculum. This theme that runs with different central ideas in different year groups is central to the philosophy of co-existence and sharing that dominates any PYP culture. This theme enquires into rights and responsibilities in the struggle to share finite resources with other people and other living things; communities and the relationships within and between them; access to equal opportunities; peace and conflict resolution. This theme contributes towards global thinking, empathy and responsibility towards the inhabitants of the planet earth and helps children become aware of the value of their individual contribution towards other living beings.
