Partial single session

Postby piggi » Thu Oct 22, 2009 10:38 pm

Some school still having partial single session. P1 and P2 in the afternoon while the rest in the morning.
Knowing that nap time for children of the younger age group is important, and most children nowadays attend childcare centre where nap time became a routine. Having them to suddenly need to sit through the humid afternoon is difficult, and probably end up dozing off during lesson.
Any parent can suggest methods to help child get through the afternoon class. No keen on the 'wake up late' idea.

gov should invest more to make all pri-school single session instead of building wireless network for students

My son's childcare tried not to let the K2 children sleep in the afternoon. Even if sleep, they will let them take a very short nap. Normally they will implement this during term 3 of the year. They are doing this to get the kids use to Primary school's life.

for my kids, I try to make them sleep earlier at night. no choice because they have internal 'alarm clock'. no matter how late they sleep, they will wake at 6.30am. In fact, this issue is a strong factor for me to consider going part time when he goes school next year.. so that i can train him to wake up later..
