Primary School Curriculum

Miras International School merges the Kazakhstani State Educational Standards and the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) to create a curriculum for students from three to ten-eleven years of age (Preschool to Grade 4).

The PYP is an international curriculum framework which focuses on the development of the child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. It encourages international-mindedness in students and a positive attitude to learning so that students become life-long learners.  It emphasizes through the learner profile, the development of the whole child – physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically. The IB Primary Years Programme guides us in what we teach, how we teach, and how we assess students’ learning. The main approach to teaching and learning is through inquiry, a process initiated by the student or teacher, which moves the student from his/her current level of understanding to a new deeper level. As we have an integrated curriculum.  Our subject areas are often taught within the Programme of Inquiry, so students learn in meaningful contexts of:

Language A (Russian, Kazakh, English),

Language B (Russian, Kazakh, English), French in Grade 4


Information Computer Technology,

Social Studies and Science,

Arts  (Visual ART and Music)

Physical Social and Personal Education (PSPE): Self-awareness, Physical Education (PE), Dance

In classes with deeper Math  Kazakhstani programme is enriched with Math Logics, Robotics, LEGO construction  and Chess.
