**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.

Its almost the last stretch, boys and girls…..let’s stay focused and push on!

**Science Programme at Math Arena**

Once again, Science Hub will be conducting quality and interactive Science courses during the mid-year holiday at Tampines. Our focus is on lively hands-on approaches in helping pupils find out concepts in relevant topics through exploration. Pupils will carry out experiments to enhance their understanding and grasp concepts fully.

Pupils are always telling me that our Science trainer teaches clearly and is most patient with them. They also look forward to his fun quizzes.This helps them to learn and absorb well in a conducive environment. They now have greater confidence and improvement in their Science results.

Actually, I always feel like attending his class too because of the great laughter and energy that come from the Science classroom! Alas, I am usually in the next classroom with my P6!

**P4 NMOS 1 & P5 NMOS 2**

The Preliminary Round of the National Mathematical Olympiad of Singapore is on 27th June 2012, Wednesday. Top scorers will be invited to the Special Round on 14th July 2012, Saturday.

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

**P5 Problem Solving Heuristics**

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.

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 lack 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!
