I know, but sort of wanting to know abit more, don't want to be in the same situation as Lynn2010 (need a PHD to help out/ solve it). Is the same kind of probject mentioned by her? :?

Really !, that nice of you. Are you hinting that you are a PHD? :evil:
I will definitely need all the helps that I can get. I have a hard time trying to arrange her 'recent' enrichment lessons with school activities. One extra school activity will upset all her enrichment lessons. Rearrange until I become blur-blur. Hope that she can stop all these 'new' enrichment lessons next year. :smile:

1. Sometime after SA, the kids will be ask to choose their next yr most preferred ISO projects. IVP, ID, Future problem solving and etc...I think ID need audition. Teacher in charge will make the final decision which type of project your kid will pick up.

2. Sometime after SA also or early next yr...the kids will take a selection tests for Advance maths enrichment club which mainly doing MO questions. Only selected ones through the test will be invited to join this AMEC in p5.

comfy wrote:thks MandyMummy, if don't have, I think just stick to mainstream P5 syllabus. Anyway, that will be alot to look. Being KS since Herbie said that P5 got alot of projects and no time to study. Hope to spread it out so more time for dd to enjoy her school life.


wow... you guys are really on the ball. I have never asked or thought of asking the teacher for the syllabus for the past 3 years. I've been sleeping the last 3 years. I thought no text book then let it be. No wonder i cant keep up :rant: :torchme:

Dont worry, take one thing at a time (cant keep up). I live my life the past 3 yrs w/o knowing all these Investigation math, IVP, ID (havent heard of it) etc thingy. Only the BreakTheCode thingy make me take a second look. I learnt only 2 weeks ago that it is call AA (Alternative Assessment). Perhaps my dd was too lousy to be chosen. What a mum (i am)!!! :lol:
