Project Description

Incorporating Science and HASS (Humanities and Social Sciences) learning.

As an International Baccalaureate PYP school, a number of learning areas are incorporated in what we call ‘Units of Inquiry’.

Research shows that students learn best, and retain information best, when they can make connections with prior knowledge and experiences and build upon this with new learning. With this in mind, PYP Units of Inquiry deliberately combine learning from different ‘traditional’ subjects to reveal connections between different areas and to explore conceptual ideas that promote a greater depth of thinking and analysis.

Through their study of Units of Inquiry at Redeemer, your child will make connections between Geography, Science, History, English and many more areas to truly understand elements of the complicated world we live in and to develop lifelong skills that will ensure they can understand more of the world as they grow into confident and worldly adults.
