Just to check... ds came home on Monday and showed me his oral practice notes for sch... then he told me that the way picture conversation is tested is different from last year...
No longer is the picture a scene and they are to describe what they see in the picture...
Now its like a few individual pictures in a box.. but the individual pictures are on a particular same theme... then they are expected to talk about anything they feel or how they can related to the theme... they call it "stimulus-based conversation"

eg:
there are 4 pictures (somewhat like clipart) namely:
a teddy bear, a boy playing with toy car, a girl playing tea party with her dolly and a boy playing building blocks....

then the teacher prompt:
"look at the picture. which of the toys do you like? why?"

then the child is expected to talk and talk and talk.....

is this what's happening in your dc's sch too??

This is the new style of testing for oral. In this way, examiner gets to hear different responses instead of the memorized version of the previous oral pic. Getting the child to express his/her opinions is what the new Oral syllabus is about.

My ds had show and tell recently. But he did it to the teacher only. Shouldn't it be to the whole class?

DD1 has no CA1 :wink: though I don't mind CA1 to have a check point on her progress. Normal revisions in the school.

She's busy preparing Haiku and hokkien for her afternoon high tea at school next week :dancing:

Kiss, rare guest. LOL

That's cool, abt the haiku and hokkien.

Is she learning hokkien fr school or a project for her to learn a dialect fr family members?

School life is rather interesting compared to my primary school experience. Now they have option to learn Malay at conversational level at no extra monetary cost. Envy.
