Upper Primary Programmes
Primary enrichment classes at Thinktank seek to nurture the whole child socially, emotionally and academically. Our carefully-crafted programmes not only provide the fundamental building blocks for secondary school but also fosters critical thinking through the exploration of various subject areas in English, Chinese, Mathematics and Science.
At Thinktank, our Upper Primary English Language Arts Programme seeks to elevate a student’s command of the language from prosaic to poetic, from mundane to magical. This we do by encouraging our students to develop a voice in their writing, exposing them to high-quality texts and inspiring them with story plots that are realistic yet not run-off-the-mill. Our students build a repertoire of refined word phrases and vocabulary and learn to write stories with greater depth and a creative edge.
Thinktank’s Chinese language arts programme focuses on nurturing a natural affinity and appreciation for the language in our students. Birthed from a vision to inspire, infuse and enthuse students to enjoy Mandarin, we believe Chinese language learning takes root best in an intentional yet spontaneous way through the mediums of art, music and movement, speech and drama and writing. Through experiential learning, children hone their oral and written skills making the process of learning Mandarin both fun and meaningful.
Thinktank’s Upper Primary Mathematics Programme aims to develop every child’s desire to learn while simultaneously preparing them for their examinations. Our students revise mathematical topics and concepts learnt since Lower Primary, but also learn new heuristics and problem solving techniques which are relevant and applicable in their examinations. We believe this programme gives our students an added edge in mathematical problem solving as they are taught different ways to tackle difficult question types with sound conceptual understanding.
Thinktank’s Upper Primary Science Programme emphasises building and reinforcing of a strong foundation in the understanding of the Primary Science syllabus. Our children experience science concepts in real life through engaging in hands-on experiments conducted by our qualified teachers. Our worksheets not only help the children to revise for exams but are also a nutritious source of interesting Science facts for budding scientists to nibble on. The relevance and importance of Science in our daily lives is also taught.
