Primary 1 & 2 Foundational English

At the foundational level, our most important task is to inculcate the love for the English Language among students. We aim to capture their excitement through a variety of teaching methods, using colours, pictures, and words. Students will be enthused by:

  • Worksheets with contents they can relate to in their daily lives
  • Opportunities to hone their communication skills in the classroom
  • Step-by-step guidance and explanation provided by teachers to help students understand better
  • Short stories which pique their interest and help them appreciate the written language
  • Monthly tests
  • Targeted revision exercises near examination

Primary 3 & 4 Booster English

These are important stages and a student’s performance in Upper Primary is usually dependent on the foundation that has been built up in these formative years. Students are exposed to a wider range of vocabulary and a variety of sentence structures. They are encouraged to use better vocabulary and to experiment with language usage. Students can expect:

  • Topical vocabulary exercises and grammar exercises
  • Newspaper articles in the form of close and comprehension passages
  • Fun elements such as tongue twisters and word games
  • Classes that specialise in the intricacies of composition writing
  • Skills in tackling common errors made by students
  • Bi-Monthly tests
  • Targeted revision exercise near examination

Primary 5 & 6 Score English

We recognise that the PSLE is a major milestone for students. While exam preparation is of utmost importance in the crucial PSLE year, we do not forget about the joy of learning a language. Students can look forward to:

  • Learning about the nuances and idiosyncrasies of language
  • Enhancing their language skills through current affairs
  • Practical revision with exam format papers
  • Oral and Listening Comprehension simulations
  • Exam Tips for exam preparation and time management
  • Bi-Monthly tests
  • Targeted revision exercise near examination

Primary Chinese

Lessons are topical and modular following the revised MOE syllabus. At every 6th lesson, there is a reinforcement component where the student re-caps and strengthens upon what was taught.

Modules all include:

  • Infusing the Chinese culture in learning the nuances and idiosyncrasies of the language.
  • Strengthening & reinforcement lessons on concepts, vocabulary and language learnt.
  • Progressive & ordered methodologies to progress from strength to strength and retaining what was taught.
  • Creative writing and using higher order skills.
  • Oral and Listening Comprehension skills.
  • Practical revision exam-format papers with error minimising techniques.

Primary 1 & 2 Jump Start Math

We understand that the early years are important in a child’s development. That is why we aim to ground our learners in a strong foundation which our learners can build upon as they progress through the various levels. At the same time, our teachers understand that at such a tender age, capturing the interest of our learners is very important. That is why our lessons are designed to be fun and enjoyable. Through the fun-filled lessons, learners will develop a love and passion for Mathematics.

  • Developing an interest in Maths as learners discover the usefulness of Mathematics beyond the classroom walls
  • Building up basic numeracy skills to prepare our learners for later years in their primary education
  • Introduction to Creative Thinking Skills – the foundation of Heuristics – as we prepare our learner for the demands of Singapore’s education system
  • Topical test
  • Targeted revision exercises near examination

Primary 3 Math

Primary 3 is a crucial year for your children as they undergo the streaming process at the end of the year. Our Primary 3 programme will help our learners consolidate their knowledge as we prepare them for an important milestone in their primary school life. At Primary 3, our learners would be introduced to heuristics – an important method of mathematical inquiry. Pure ‘drilling’ is passé. At Sparklekidz, we believe in learning through understanding and our teachers will guide our learners though the various processes to ensure that they achieve this objective.

  • Consolidation of key concepts from the Primary 1 & 2 syllabus as we prepare our learners for the streaming examination at the end of the year
  • Further exposure to Heuristics as our learners build upon their Creative Thinking Skills
  • Honing our learners’ numeracy, reasoning, thinking and problem-solving skills through the learning and application of mathematics
  • Introducing the skills involved in solving problem sums to our learners
  • Topical test
  • Targeted revision exercises near examination

Primary 4 Race Ahead Math

In Primary 4, our learners will be exposed more frequently to heuristics or higher order thinking questions. Mavis provides our learners with structured practice which helps to ease them into challenging questions. The questions are pitched at progressive levels of difficulty as our learners understand and master the basic concepts before moving on to even more difficult problems.
  • Building the foundation for the ‘critical’ years – Primary 5 and 6
  • Progressive learning
  • Greater exposure to heuristics as our learners acquire the mastery to solve mind-bending questions
  • Further development of our learners’ numeracy, reasoning, thinking and problem-solving skills through constant practice
  • Topical test
  • Targeted revision exercises near examination
