Nurturing Your Child To Be An Inquisitive Learner
Take A Moment To Consider: Are These Learning Challenges Familiar?
Your child’s Science grades fell sharply in Primary 5 as compared to what he/she scored in Primary 3 or 4.
Questions have became more challenging in Primary 5 as compared to those in the previous academic levels.
Your child is expected to think deeper and be adept at connecting the dots using different Science concepts. Your child is also required to produce more comprehensive responses to attain the full marks for the question (… as compared to giving straight-forward responses in Primary 3/4).
There are simply too many Science topics to ‘master’ in Primary 5 and there is too little time to get all of them right.
Most MOE teachers typically complete the entire Primary 5 Science syllabus ONLY about a month before the P5 SA2 Science examination.
Very often, too little time is spent on learning how to apply concepts from multiple topics to tackle application questions (e.g. Cells and Reproduction in Humans). As application questions are getting increasingly common in the Science paper, students who do not have adequate exposure to such questions will find themselves struggling during the examination revision period.
Your child is getting increasingly careless at Science in Primary 5 and you are unsure of how to help.
Carelessness is often a result of a student’s inadequate understanding of the subject matter.
Not only does your child need to know and understand how to apply the Science concepts within the Primary 5 syllabus, it is important to understand the common misconceptions that students often have about certain Science concepts.
Like many students, your child may get tricked by examination setters easily if he/she does not know how to proactively seek out common conceptual traps.
If these challenges sound familiar, your child is not alone. Well, many Primary 5 students are facing these exact same challenges.
Like these students, your child was probably caught off guard after moving up from Primary 4 to Primary 5. Doing well in Science may not be as easy as it was in Primary 3 or 4 & it usually takes Primary 5 students about 3 to 5 months before they notice the difference.
The good news is that there is still time for change. Read on to find out how we can help.
