Primary 2 Programmes
TERM 1 - JUNIOR ATHLETES
Introduced only in Primary 2, Junior Athletes provides opportunities for students to learn more about working with one another through games. One interesting game is Mosquitoes, Bears and Salmon, an activity similar to our Singaporean favourite, Scissors, Paper and Stone. Students are required to come up with strategies to win as a team. They also have opportunities to develop interpersonal skills such as turn-taking and listening to others in order to build positive relationships. In addition, students also learn to look out for their own and others’ safety while following instructions to perform the tasks effectively.
TERM 2 - JUNIOR ARTISTES PART 2
TERM 3 - JUNIOR EXPLORER 2
Junior Explorer provides a platform for students to experience the outdoors and equip them with the necessary intrapersonal and interpersonal skills as they go about working in their teams. The content covered is a spiral progression from Primary 1 to 2 and includes topics such as Caring for Our Environment, Appreciating Nature and First Aid. Some examples of the skills which the students are equipped with are packing right for the activity, orienteering, map reading, using a compass and knot-tying.
As lessons for Junior Explorer are conducted in the outdoors, students are brought regularly to the butterfly garden, herb and spice garden, field, maze and the eco-pond and engaged in multi-sensory activities which will heighten their senses to the surroundings. Being able to observe animals and plants in their natural settings also allows them to experience life beyond textbooks and appreciate nature for what it is. Through constant exposure to the outdoors, students become more confident to work in natural settings.
TERM 4 - I CAN! PART 2
The domain on I Can! Programme is designed to develop students’ competence in self-management, social interaction and independence in navigating beyond their classrooms. It consists of 3 modules and each module spans over 3 lessons. Module 1 on Life Skills teaches students the fundamentals of self-management and social awareness as they are taught the basic skills of keeping the environment clean, goal-setting and financial literacy. Module 2 on Information & Communication Technology (ICT) seeks to develop students to be responsible decision makers through being competent and confident users of ICT, focusing first of all on the basic skills of handling a lap-top and the login process. Module 3 on Effective Collaboration helps students learn the principles of social-awareness and relationship management as they learn to cooperate and collaborate effectively during group work. The programme is facilitated by both FT and CFT and students are provided with authentic tools for effective learning.
