Language Arts is a core-curriculum subject taught at YYPS. Our overall objective is to teach all areas of English by providing a rich English language environment for students to learn in. We use a school-based English curriculum designed by our own teachers around the needs and strengths of our own students. We cover phonics, grammar, reading, speaking, listening, writing and drama skills throughout the year during our lessons. We use a wide variety of teaching methods to keep students engaged and promote deep learning through interactive task-based lessons.

Projects are an important part of our curriculum. They help students consolidate and showcase what they’ve learned while being actively engaged in meaningful tasks. This way they also work on their communication, collaboration, problem-solving and other skills. Most importantly, it gives an extra purpose to their learning through the products they are so proud of in the end.

With the advantage of having two teachers in every Language Arts lesson, teachers can focus their efforts more efficiently and give the students the help or the extra challenge they need to grow. We also provide extra support to students through small group teaching, in what we call ‘rotations’, during regular lessons as well as in dedicated pull-out lessons aimed at students most in need of support.

Our learning environment rich in Putonghua further strengthens our students’ foundations in Chinese.

Our school  implemented one weekly lesson of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education in the academic year of 2019/20.  During this year, our school has established 5 school teams to unleash students’ potential in innovation, such as Tello Drone, App Inventor, mBot, Coding and Programming Team, and our school has been awarded in different aspects in STEM education with 5 champions, 1 first runner up, 4 second runners up, and more. 

We are offering a double lesson each week for ICT & STEM education starting from the 2020/2021 academic year .  Our school-based ICT & STEM education not only covers the study on knowledge skills, but also focuses on students’ generic skills as well as value and attitude, especially metacognition and digital citizenship.  Our school-based curriculum includes, but is not limited to, 3D Printing, mBot, micro:bit Coding, Web Page design and App Inventor.

Learning activities are designed for students to explore ICT & STEM related concepts with modern teaching strategies, such as hands-on activities, inquiry-based learning, dynamic teaching strategies and cooperative learning. In addition, besides the 3/F computer room and a wide variety of teaching and learning resources, our school has also invested substantial resources into constructing a STEM Laboratory on the 2/F to enrich students’ learning experience and build a sense of belonging. For the formative assessment, project-based learning will  take place instead of traditional quizzes and homework.  

Most importantly, our ultimate goal is not only to equip students with up-to-date 21st century skills, but also arouse their learning motivation, as well as increase the teaching and learning efficiency in all disciplines through our ICT & STEM curriculum.

In YYPS, we understand that music education is indispensable when it comes to cultivating all-rounded students. Beyond training in music performance and theory, students develop holistically as they learn to listen and coordinate with their peers to achieve synchronization in pitch, rhythm and pulse. With consistent experiences of music-making, students develop awareness for space and time. Students gain the necessary confidence and creativity to move their bodies at will. Students immersed in a rich music program will acquire independence, discipline, social skills, kinesthetic dexterity as well as enhanced cognitive abilities.

In conjunction with our curriculum, our music program also provides extracurricular activities for our students, including Choir, Symphony Orchestra, Musical Theater Team, Vocal and Instrumental Training Classes etc. We strive to develop a well-rounded music program to maximize the potential growth of our students.
