Getting into the best Primary school you can have is only the start of a six year journey of discovery where you will learn to discard all the “old school” learning and teaching methods that you were used to during your time in school, in favor of the latest pedagogical methods instituted by the Ministry of Education to fine-tune education, ostensibly to cater to the projected manpower requirements of future generations of Singaporeans.
As parents, it is necessary that we are well tuned to what our children are expected to learn and know at various levels of their Primary school lives. For parents with pre-school children, this knowledge will also help shape the selection of enrichment programmes for the kids.
Here is the latest Primary school subject syllabus for your reference:
- Humanities and Aesthetics
- Art & Craft (2002)
