I am concern about how effective is learning after looking at my P1 son's timetable this week.
All core subjects are broken into separate half hour session every day.
Eg. On fri starts 1/2 hr Math, 1/2hr English, 90 mins Chinese, recess, 1/2hr English, 1/2hr PE, 1hr English then back to 1/2hr Math. And
Tue: 12pm - Math
12.30 - Chinese
1 pm - Math
1.30 - Chinese again.
I can visualise teacher rush in, class settle down, teach for 20 mins then prepares to rush to another class. comes back later trying to recap where she left.
While I cannot imagine how the teacher can teach effectively under stress for time, I am also worried if the child can 'connect' what is taught between breaks. Isn't it also a waste of time 'running' between classes.
Any parent out there with similar scenario?
