Kindergarten 2 English

  • WRITE ON!
    We get your child interested in writing by inquiring into children’s books, learning from the best writing techniques and how to emulate them.
    Lessons also cover grammar topics to help your child construct sentences confidently.
    Creative writing exercises in each term are included to allow your child to hone his or her writing ability.
    Primary school language components such as reading comprehension are introduced to familiarise your child with the MOE Primary 1 syllabus.
  • RAISING READERS
    Lessons are integrated with phonics components to help your child blend, decode and recognise more complex or tricky words, building a strong foundation and an interest in reading.
  • BE HEARD
    Our lessons encourage your child to be an active listener and an articulate speaker, developing his or her own voice and perspective. Weekly shared reading of children’s books is used to spark your child’s curiosity and imagination.
  • BE CURIOUS
    Your child will be exposed to a wide range of themes (e.g. biodiversity, young game changers) to get him or her to think beyond the classroom academia. 
  • BE INFORMED
    After each lesson, parents receive a summary of what was covered in class, as well as suggested activities to reinforce learning at home.

    We give your child a fun learning experience by using manipulatives, interactive activities and mini projects. Abstract ideas in math are made more tangible and understandable for your child in class via the use of physical objects and pictures.
  • USING HEURISTICS
    Our classes are tailored to help your child to think about math in broader terms than just rote learning.
