I've been assigned to Guangyang Primary for my school attachment. It's really near Bishan MRT, so maybe I'll be meeting up with you north-dwellers more often in July then... (Then again I'll probably knock off earlier than the average worker. Oh well =P)

Hmm. Maybe I'll even cycle to school daily. Ey wait, I think my mum got rid of the bike already. Dang.

My project title seems quite interesting, as in it's something I'm very interested in actually doing, but right now quite frankly I don't know where to start. Like I have a few vague ideas in my head, but how do I know if they're viable at all? I've got very little experience leh. Haiyah.

Improving the PSLE English Language Results – A modular approach to teaching and learning

The school has not been able to achieve PSLE English Language Results that is above national average for the past 2 years. Upon the mid year review conducted at the end of semester 1 of 2007, teachers gave the feedback that a lot of time in class has been proportioned towards the completion of tasks assigned in the workbooks. Teachers have very little time to teach pupils the strategies towards tackling examinable components in which they can score best example Grammar and Editing, let alone revise those components that they are weak in namely, the Comprehension Cloze, Synthesis and Transformation and Comprehension OE.

The scholar can review the results of the current P4 pupils to see how best the modular system / approach to the teaching and learning of English Language can be implemented for 2008-2009 to prepare these pupils for their PSLE in 2009.

gosh! do they refer to you as "the scholar"?

guangyang is supposedly one of the not-so-good primary schools in bishan, which explains why my mom didn't want to enrol me in there (even though it's just a stone's throw away from my house).. though that said, that probably only refers to results and not other aspects.. hope you don't get bullied by the students.. =P

can't imagine that you will be so near to my house while I'm still stuck in york.. =(
