Would like to share a GA question from my DD.

Crate ________ Hit

1) Punch
2) Box
3) ??? she forgotten


Hi,
my dd said this is an "example" qn to show the children how to approach the questions. It is not one of the questions that they were required to do. :D

I think answer is 2 - box. Cos crate and box has similar meaning, and box and hit also has similar meaning.

Is it true that the sign up rate for the IRS presentation on 4 Nov is low? P4 parents here are you all going? P5/6 parents attended in the past, is it worth going?

Finally found out yesterday that DS's ERP homework is quite interesting but not so simple to do. They have to choose to do one from a list of about 14 items. Deadline is 25 October!!!!


Hi all,

May I know what is the ERP homework about?Is it a must for all the GEP 's student or is it for the selected students?

TIA


Hi,

The GEP students are given a ERP list (recommended reading list). Throughout the year, they will be asked to do a few (2?) book reviews/summary. The books are quite interesting; some are pretty common - Roald Dahl's. :D


Just to add: the P4 ERP list has 60+ books. Most can be borrowed from the library.

DS says that some of the books in the ERP list are lame :roll: ... so have to borrow the books for him periodically and especially during sch hols and get him to read ... he's enjoying his Harry Potter books now. :wink:

You will have the opportunity to see GEP students outside of your DS/DD cohort and understands what they will do next year for their IRS.

Do make an effort to go. It's an enriching experience. I really enjoyed myself there last year.
