PSLE A* Achievers

This June, P6 pupils will work on mock papers that comprise of both short and long questions. This is a good time for all pupils to go through a comprehensive revision before the preliminary exams.

As usual, trainer’s explanation of difficult concepts in class is key to helping pupils clarify doubts and misconceptions so pupils are strongly encouraged to ask questions in class.

Practice is the other key ingredient for success in PSLE Math. Hence we are going to have an intensive program that has systematic coverage of PSLE math topics, emphasizes on higher order challenging problems and where pupils’ presentation of solutions will be fine-tuned.

It’s almost the last stretch, boys and girls….. let’s stay focused and push on for the A*!








The Preliminary Round of the National Mathematical Olympiad of Singapore will be held on 3 Jul 2019 (Wed). Top scorers will be invited to the Special Round on 23 Jul 2019 (Tue). A separate training class for top scorers invited to the Special Round will be conducted in July (details to be confirmed later in Term 3).

We continue our intensive training to help P4 and P5 pupils in their preparation for the coming NMOS competition. Knowledge, understanding and skills will be built up through active teaching and learning in class.

Working on simulated mock papers will also give pupils more exposure to the topics and questions most relevant to the competition.

P5 Problem Solving Heuristic

Primary 5 is a crucial period of learning for pupils as they head towards their PSLE next year. As essential skills are taught, pupils build up a stronger foundation and their ability and confidence soar. Topics covered this June:

  • Average
  • Rate, Volume
  • Decimal, percentage, ratio, fraction
  • Area of triangles
  • Properties of triangles, quadrilaterals

We see this in pupils who started their P5 year with us, soaring ahead in their P6 year. We are happy for them, especially those who initially came in with low marks and lacked confidence.

As always, trainers will explain strategies in class but pupils’ attentiveness and diligence in practice is still key to their achievements. Time to work hard, boys and girls!

Science Program

The Science program emphasizes on the content and its delivery in an engaging manner. Hands-on experiments will be carried out during school holiday programs to build up pupil’s experimental knowledge.

Available levels: Primary 5 (Experimental Learning on Photosynthesis & Respiration), Primary 6 (Open-Ended Intensive Revision for PSLE)

DSA Advance Science (P6)

This course is offered to P6 students who wish to advance their learning in the Sciences.  Click here to find out more about the MOE DSA-Sec (Direct School Admission) Exercise.  Click here to find out more about the Year 1 selection test (NUS High School of Math and Science) to be held on Sat, 6 Jul 2019.
