My son also brought 2 calculators for the Math exam.
Checked and double checked his compass and set squares are intact.
2moro, I can definitely a loud cheer from the school after Science.

I'm already thinking of ice cream tomorrow and some retail therapy.
My son asked me, 'Mummy, I think you miss Orchard Road right ?'
I replied, 'Yes. Taka, Isetan and Robinsons'.

Pen88n, yup..big thanks ! Do continue to drop-by our threads.
We went out over the weekend to buy extra calculators and e-dictionaries :rahrah: The e-dictionary warranty is 1year so you are so right might as well just buy now.

Janet, how come your ds need compass ? circles only in P6 right ? We only prepared projectors and set squares.

We are also looking forward to a break after SA2. :imcool:

And it is not projectors either (that is for projecting slides), it is protractor :rotflmao: Can see how "stress" and "disoriented" Janet is :evil:

Sori, Janet, this panda can't help teasing and being naughty :oops:

By the way, even for P6 circles topic, no need for compass at all. Kids not required to draw circles with compass.

You got me...I'm so super blur. This has been a tough year with younger one in P1. Looking back I took P1 too seriously...learnt to let go a bit late. Wanted to prepare her foundation and not wait till too late. However, I realized I had to handle her mood and character which is very different from son.

Well, after 2moro's Science, we will all graduate to 2012 P6 thread.

Maths paper is tomorrow and I must say I really hate those heuristics questions! Matchsticks, table arrangement, tile patterns, sigh. It's fun to do those kind of questions at leisure but under exam and time pressure, it's tough for the kid to spot the pattern. Sometimes I myself only spot the pattern after half a day of thinking. :sweat:

Thanks Pen88n for the tips, also need to go buy the spares. Totally slipped my mind.
