P5 GEP Busy?

Post by musette » Wed Feb 16, 2011 2:17 pm

Busy? My dd in P5 GEP has been very free!

Since school started until now, no assignments given, no writing and no projects assigned yet. Only busy with school camp, CNY celebration, sports day events that she is taking part in and only stay back once a week for IVP.

I really wonder what her teachers are doing!

You wait. It'll come. And since you haven't had anything yet it'll be an avalanche. :D

Thanks jtoh and vlim, err... for the warning.

That's why I said, I really wonder what the teachers are doing! :roll:

Why can't they inform the students of their assignments earlier so that they can spread out the work load?

Yah. It would help in the planning. Maybe you can raise this during the parent-teacher's meeting?

My child is writing the mystery story. 1st draft - whole class did not meet the 65% benchmark.

Since the start of the year, he has been very busy... lots of math worksheets, a few science and ss research / homework....and the usual chinese homework.

Have not seen the ERP list though.

DD P5 does seem to be more relaxing than P4 (so far), and would have finished all or most given work by the time I reach home in the evening.

The teachers have given out the projects and the due dates. Since it's a lull period now, I've asked DD to start, in case later really an avalanche :imdrowning:

KSmom8: Do you know what they r looking for in the mystery story? DD was full of excitement on that one. Started on that one right away and was done in a couple of hours, then handed in way ahead of deadline. Have not gotten it back. Goodness, now I wonder what kind of marks she'll be getting...
