P4 Level Experience
The highlights of being a P4 Teck Whyean include the P1-P4 Buddy Programme and the P4 Outdoor Learning Adventure Camp. These activities focus on our school value of Responsibility, where our P4 pupils learn to be more responsible for themselves, as well as how to take care of their younger P1 buddy. They will also go to the Road Safety Park to have an experiential learning session about how to be responsible and safe road users.
Besides these, the pupils will also get to go to the National Gallery Singapore and Singapore History Gallery, National Museum of Singapore as part of the Aesthetics and Social Studies syllabus. The learning journeys will give pupils an insight on the development of Singapore through the years. The artefacts in the museums provide pupils with a glimpse of some of the key developments in the years after Singapore’s independence.
To promote a greater appreciation of the Arts, P4 Teck Whyeans will undergo Ukulele enrichment lessons, watch theatre productions and have an in-depth study of a chosen literature text. They will also learn to be content creators as part of the e-journalism programme, which allows pupils to experience how media is crafted and created for the intended audience.
As part of our efforts to encourage students to be more aware of their environment, all P4 pupils will get to take part in the hydroponics programme where they will grow lettuce and kang kong from seed to adult plant.
Selected pupils also take part in the E2K Science and Mathemathics programmes. The E2K Science programme aims to develop scientific inquiry process skills where pupils learn Science by going through the same process that scientists use to generate knowledge. The E2K Mathematics programme aims to develop pupils’ mathematical reasoning skills and deepen their conceptual understanding through an inquiry approach. Pupils will have opportunities to collaborate with their peers and engage in mathematical thinking through resources such as puzzles, games and mathematics explorations which are specially designed for the programme. The rich learning experiences offered by the programmes serve to help pupils to develop the habits, attitudes and dispositions scientists and mathematicians possess, as well as to gain important 21st century competencies such as critical and inventive thinking and effective communication skills.
