Hmm, for the mystery story, so far dd has only done the first draft in school. Commented everyone found the assignment tough.

Does anyone know anything about p5 science IDP project and ss project (both due in apr) ? Dd was told just the deadlines with absolutely no details about them.

I've not heard anything about the Science IDP. Maybe that's why DD's been cruising....

So far, for Science they've done the cell presentation. Other than that, it's ERM (Extra Reading Materials) whereby they are to read & do write-up, eg a newspaper article and how it relates to practical Science. These are not graded though and there's no deadline.

For SS, there's one project due in April. DD just received the go-ahead for her proposal.

English - Mystery story (1st draft submitted) and ERP book review

IRS project

Didi I miss out anything?

What is the ss project about? A research report ? Is it sthg that will take up a lot of time?

Science IDP is due 18-21 apr for dd's school.

IRS still stuck at topic generating. Her initial choice of topic got rejected.

For IDp, the students got to work on a natural phenomena and my ds took some video shoot for the short presentation . One of his classmates ask him what is a natural phenomena.. He said,'for eg if u ( who is pretty fat) and another boy would to fall from a tall building, u will reach the ground first ....' :wink:

SS portfolio 1 - either create something new (eg game, poem etc) or do a review on an article or series of articles etc, all to be related to SS subject. Also includes the reflection on the work done.

Teacher should be handing out the instructions and rubrics soon. We just got ours this week.

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.


Hi KSmom8, do you know when the submission date is for myster story and how long do they have to write? Is this actually ERP book review?
So far I only know ERP homework but not 'mystery story', I blur.

IDP is Interest Driven Project. According to the school's briefing at beginning of year, the details will be announced end of term 1 to be submitted in Apr. Think the timing is what was posted earlier by Neko.
