Week 1

Fun with Science!

In the last theme of Summer School, students will learn about the process of scientific inquiry through a variety of fun, hands-on science projects and experiments. Students will use their imagination to ask and answer questions about the world around them, make and record scientific observations, and draw conclusions based on these observations. 

Week 2

Art in Action!

In the second week of Summer School, students will explore art as an active and creative process. In addition to learning about the basic elements of art (line, shape, color, texture, form and space), they will engage in art projects that are child-directed, choice-driven, and focused on the creation of the artwork, not just the outcome. Students will have an opportunity to express themselves through a variety of art forms, including drawing, painting, printmaking, collage and sculpture. 

Week 3

Around the World in Six Days!

In the third week of Summer School, students will go on a worldwide tour, learning about some of the different languages, clothes, games, songs, and traditions of people in different parts of the world. One of the goals of this theme is to help promote intercultural understanding and respect as essential parts of life in the 21st century.  

Week 4

Wild Wonders!

In the final exciting week of Summer School, our young adventurers will embark on a journey through Earth’s diverse habitats, discovering some of the amazing animals and plants that call our planet home. Students will explore the relationship between humans and living things, inquiring into the impact people have on plant and animal life and the ways that we can take action to protect the world’s biodiversity for future generations.

Circle Time

This is a time for children to learn months of the year, days of the week, greetings, theme-related songs, phonics and more. It is also an opportunity for children to express themselves and communicate with their teachers. 

Morning Activity

Morning activities are always a fun time for children to sing songs related to themes, move their bodies and play games, and also participate in drama (practicing performing). Also, it is a time for children to engage in a variety of hands-on learning experiences, such as craft, art, and scientific experiments. 

Afternoon Activity

Afternoon activities include listening to the homeroom teacher reading books aloud, singing songs and dancing together. 

Closing Circle time

The day ends with a closing circle time, reviewing what children have learnt throughout the day. 

Indoor play / outdoor play

We have various areas for children to play in the afternoon. 
For indoor play, children are free to choose from Lego blocks, coloring, origami, puzzles, picture books, small world play, and more. This is an opportunity for children to interact with friends in different age groups and with different teachers. For outside play, children can run in the playground, play in the sandpit, play physical games and dance with their friends and teachers.
