Hi there

Thought I would share with you the subject my son studies in his Year 2 (here in England), equivalent to your P1. He got his report last week, and achieved a fantatstic set of results, but even I was shocked at the span of subjects. Is this what is studied in Singapore in P1 and P2.

    Mathematics
    Science
    History
    Geography
    Physical Education
    Music
    Information technology

Yes ruyu, he is.. :wink:

Been awhile sharing and exchanging experiences
with us here in the forum too. :D Cool uh? 8)

Niwae, just to add... i cleaned up a lot of your
long quotes within the threads. Just to let you
know that you dun have to quote an entire post
which you intend to reply to.. if need be, just the
relevant contents especially when the forummer's
post is just above yours. You may just reply directly
or start with say.. "hi optimistforum" for example..

Try to avoid long quotes. Appreciate your understanding.

Dear optimistforum, thanks for sharing from all the way where you are.
Indeed it is insightful. :celebrate: International schools in Singapore
may have similar subjects as you posted in your 1st post.

Having been in Montessori environment for awhile, our pre-schoolers
are exposed to English, Math, Science, Geography, Art & Music
already. A few centres offer IT as well.

In our P1 & P2 however, the core subjects are still...
1. English
2. Math
3. Mother Tongue/2nd Language

Additional subjects are :
1. Social Studies
2. Health Education
3. PE/Gym
4. Civic & Moral Education
5. Art & Craft
6. Music

Science begins from Primary 3 onwards.
