Re: All About Getting Help for Students Weak in Math

Even if class size is small, for P5 & P6, 1.5hr is way too short. It has to be 2hr.
Personally, I will never consider 1.5hr class for upper primary. Furthermore, we are talking about 'help for students weak in Math'.

Re: fr p4 to p5 .. results dropped

hi lee_yl, all students who got below 10 indeed wrote out of topic. for regular class work, my son usually gets around 27-28 so I was shocked when SA1 dropped to 5. even though out of topic, content marks is affected but there should still be marks awarded for language... to get below 10 is too heav...

Re: fr p4 to p5 .. results dropped

Yes, agree with Janet Even at P4 SA1 : Science already getting very tough, compared to P3, because is such a heavy subject , in terms of content. And Section B Science (open-ended), some students already failed. Yes, I totally agree that SC is getting increasingly tough even at P4. At P5 SA1, maybe...

Re: fr p4 to p5 .. results dropped

Thnk you people for all your sharing and kind words. Instead of punishing and nagging at him, I encouraged him to learn from the mistakes and move on. I m praying hard that he will gradually improve. Now I finally understand the change from p4 to p5. As for HCL, I hope his sch will conduct extra les...

Re: fr p4 to p5 .. results dropped

Personally, I feel that it is very common. My dd's results drop by at least 20 marks from p4 to p5 (from 80+ to about 60). Give me a big shock in my life. I remember it is because the expectation in students is higher and the papers are tougher (e.g. more problem sums in Math, more comprehension qn...
