Hi Janet,
A dear friend whose son is P6 this year recommends this book. I have not look in the content yet so I can't give much comments. Perhaps you can take a look when you are at Popular Bookstore :smile:

Hi mummies, need your help. The answer to this question seems so natural to me, that I got stuck explaining to child. Child chose 'depend', answer is 'depends'. Hope someone can shed some light on how to explain to child. Thank You in advance!

Psle 2015 MCQ - Whether the children attend their swimming classes or not XXXXX on the weather.

The verb 'attend' agrees with 'children'.
The outcome - whether the children - 'attend' OR 'do not attend' DEPENDS on the weather.

Image Just to check - For Example (i), should it be 'Jia Wei asked Sally how her day had been.' instead of '....how her day was.'

(Sorry the uploaded picture seems to be not upright, I don't know how to rotate...)
