6 Programme Articulation
The transition from Primary Years Programme The transition to Diploma Programme From PYP to MYP – PYP is concept-based, transdisciplinary and taught by a class teacher. MYP schools have a responsibility to ensure that there is a smooth tranistion from the transdisciplinary model into a model where disciplinary concepts are taught; interdisciplinary links are forged; teaching is appropriate for students at different developmental levels; develops lifelong lerning skills and attitudes. From MYP to DP – Content of the curriculum is aligned under each subject group’s final objectives and therefore provides for continuity and progression from year 5 fo the MYP into year 1 of the two-year Diploma Programme; Prepares students for independent study and for the continuation of this rigour within the Diploma Programme
