Correct me if I'm wrong, but I remember you have kids in upper primary.
Jennifer, your boy is in P6 this year ? Just spoke to my neighbour, she told me to expect more stressful time ahead in P5 as Maths & Science is very tough. Is it very jialat from P5 onwards ??
This year's SA2 for Chinese P4 has been modified, in line with P6 oral.
Memo from principal came back last week...作文 will be 15% (a drop in weightage) but more emphasis on Oral
. Will get my son to read his textbook more often now.
My boy is in P6. Comparing P5 and P6, he finds that P5 having more Homework, learning higher order maths for ratio,& and fraction compare to P4. However, I feel that maybe he has maths tuition this yr and he is taught how to solve challenging maths questions, futhermore with weekly tuition, it is like doing revision for him.
For chinese compo,the paper itself is over 40 marks, oral is 50 marks (20 marks for reading,20 for picture,10 marks for conversation)
Hope this helps
