yap I agree..the cell city project is just a poster presentation...kind of boring...but they do take part in the sony creation activity and the toy car creation stuffs....

Alot of time, I only found out these activities on this forum, instead of getting it from my DS. And when I ask my DS, then I get the answer "YEAH" . That why we come here to sniff out all these thing that our DS do. :wink:

emm.... it seems like this year p4 gep assignments are not quite the same as last yr p4 gep assignments :roll: ..last yr my ds did not do the solar cooker project and the tic tac toe fairy tale assignment...


Solar Cooker is the first year for this Science assignment. Heard last year was a different assignment on cells and membranes? The Tic Tac toe fairy tale english assignment should not be new leh. The worksheet seems to have started since 2007 (footer sstated fairy tales/term2/geo/2007) Maybe your child completed without you knowing? :)


Tic-Tac-Toe has been around since my dd's time a few years ago.


heeeeeeeeee...did not see him doing this assignment :wink:


He probably did it without telling you. :) Exercising his independence.

Do they need to do a presentation? TIA


DS tells me that they will have to do a presentation on the project. Did you child get the Tic Tac Toe fairy tale assignment for English too?


Thanks! Don't know why DS is so blur about this project.

DS also has the Tic Tac Toe fairy tale assignment. He had quite a lot of fun - composing the theme song - was singing though it was a little tuneless! Had to show him what is a classified ad as a sample though.

Pls advise what are the assignment (to do list) and schedule like for Tic Tac Toe fairy tale assignment ?


Tic Tac Toe Fairy tale assignment for English is due on 20th Apr according to DS. There are 9 tasks for which they have to choose 3 tasks which are consecutive like in the game Tic tac toe. Eg of tasks are lyrics for theme song, recipe, poem etc etc. According to the worksheet, this is anchor activity for GEP P4. I think it is part of term 2 curriculum. Hope this helps.

:thankyou: Yes, I do come across my ds reading fairy tale these days. So far no worksheet leh, like you say may be they do in school. Good that we have this forum page to chat about this kind of "common interest", so at least we know what is going on. BTW how your ds find the Math and HCL CT? I look at the test and exam schedule, it seems that there is no oral and listening test for HCL/CL at P4, correct me if I am wrong. How about P5 HCL GE students? Do they also take CL exam amd sit for oral and listening test ?

A. Are the assignments so tough? or

D. All of the above
E. Your own answer

Thanks.


Hi ks2me, I would say involve as in keeping track of his schedule but not taking over his responsibility in doing the assignment and project. It may also mean depending on the child, whether he is the independent learner type. Do you have any kid in GEP or any P1-3 kid?

I agreed with you Zann...I also don't help my ds to do his assignment but just ensure that he start doing it so that he will be in time to hand in assignment.
P4 gepers do not has oral in the first semester . They will have it in term 4 likewise for p5 gepers. You can check out the gep whole year schedule at Tao Nan website (gep - calender). (btw my ds not in that school...just like to kpo around other gep schools website) :wink:
