Dear parents, we are very excited that our December Open House Symposium details are finally out! It is a challenge for us when the holiday season comes a-knocking. It is tough for us to find a matching time for our different students in different levels, taking different subjects. Thus, we come up with a symposium of sorts, meaning, we open up our time slots to cater to the various groups to the best we can. Below is a more detailed description:
Class 1: English & Math Levels: K2, P1, P2 (2019) Summary: * Learn how to CRAFT simple composition writing - through hands on learning (bake, craft) - incorporating Math & English
Class 2: English Levels: P3, P4, P5, P6 (2019) Summary: * Master how to CRAFT better story plots through - games - graphic organizers - hands on manipulatives
Class 3: Science Levels: P3, P4, P5, P6 (2019) Summary: * Master how to THINK & LINK tough Science concepts through - games - experiments - process skills applicationLet us run through some Q & A queries: Q1: WHY this grouping? Is this effective?
A1: Yes, as we have tried it over our September Special Programme, as part of our soft launch among our P3, P4 and P5 students. (Click to watch the video below)
Grouping the age groups occasionally help students of different levels to adapt to the different age groups, display empathy, and work together to foster better working relationships.Q2: How does the programme run? With different age groups, how can it benefit my child?
A2: All our lessons (Classes 1,2,3) are largely packed with hands on activities at the beginning of the lessons. For the last part of each lesson, we will hand out writing materials catered to their levels, so be assured your child will learn according to his/her subject level.Q3: How do I choose and book my slots? A3: From the December Calendar 2018, refer to the indicated slots. There are 5 slots per day, running from 9am to 630pm, with 30min break in between. These slots are effectively from 3 Dec to 7 Dec, 10 Dec to 14 Dec. You may choose either 4 slots to enjoy the bundle rate (refer to Q4). Two examples are already provided in the poster. To further explain how our symposium works, below is a few case studies:
Case Study Parent 1: - My child, ZK, is in K2 or P1 or P2 (2019). - He falls under Class 1. - I choose the bundle rate (min 4 lessons) to enjoy more savings. - I can choose any 4 Class 1 dates (3,4,5,6,7,10,11,12,13,14 Dec),9-1030am. - I understand that any classes need minimum 5 to start. - I am prepared to shift the date(s) if possible.
Case Study Parent 2: - My child, YS, is in P3, P4, P5, P6 (2019). - He falls under Class 2 (English) and Class 3 (Science). - I choose the bundle rate (min 4 lessons) to enjoy more savings. - I can choose any 2 Class 2 and 3 dates(3,4,5,6,7,10,11,12,13,14 Dec). - My choice is Group A (11am-230pm) - I understand that any classes need minimum 5 to start. - I am prepared to shift the date(s) if possible.
Case Study Parent 3: - My child, XR, is in P3, P4, P5, P6 (2019). - He falls under Class 2 (English) and Class 3 (Science). - I choose the bundle rate (min 4 lessons) to enjoy more savings. - I can choose any 2 Class 2 and 3 dates(3,4,5,6,7,10,11,12,13,14 Dec). - My choice is Group B (3pm-630pm) - I understand that any classes need minimum 5 to start. - I am prepared to shift the date(s) if possible.Q4: What is the bundle rate for? A4: This bundle rate of 4 lessons is our commitment to replace the 4 weeks of lessons in December. This is also to encourage our students to attend for the lessons to keep themselves updated for the coming 2019 academic year. Q5: If I like to extend beyond 4 lessons, will the lessons be repeated? A5: No, they will not. Each lesson is different and at any slots that your child is in, they will take home different learning materials. Q6: My family is overseas for the first 2 weeks and we are keen to enroll. How is it possible? A6: If you are keen to enroll for our December Open House Symposium, do drop us a message to indicate. We will consider opening up on the 3rd week, most likely on Monday or Tuesday, if we are able to hit a minimum. Q7: My child is new and after the programme, how do we sign up for regular classes? A7: We will announce our 2019 regular classes as soon as we can, as we are gathering interest from parents currently.
