The approach of collocation method approximation will be adopted in the derivation of discrete schemes for direct integration second order ordinary differential equation which are combined together to form a block method. The method is extended to the case in which the approximate solution to a second order (special or general), as well as first order Initial Value Problems(IVPs) can be calculated from the same continuous interpolant and is of order five which is A-stable and has an implicit structure for efficient implementation. The method produces simultaneously approximation of the solution of initial value problems at a block of four points (i=1,2,3,4). Numerical results are given to illustrate the performance method.
