Star Learners @ Bukit Batok Open Day!

Thank you to all parents who joined us at our Open Day today at block 501 Bukit Batok. We are sure you had fun and learnt a lot during the SCDF talk and demostration on "Fire Safety" while your kids joined in our Speech & Drama, Gym and Aikido trial classes. Oh yes, what animal did your child tranform into after the face-painting? A tiger, a cat or a butterfly? 

We were very happy to share our outstanding curriculum including Jolly Phonics, Growing with Maths and our very own Stanley Starfish Character Development Programme with you and trust that you share our vision and understand the benefits of our multi-faceted curriculum!

We hope to have you and your child child join our Star Learners family real soon!

Learning the Letter "S"...

How do you teach the letters of the alphabets to your child? Sing the "Alphabet" song? Get them to trace dotted letters?

We at Star Learners approach the learning of letters in totally new and creative ways to ensure our children are engaged and having fun!

In teaching the letter "S", we used tactile materials like sandpaper letter for the children to feel the "contours" of the letter and also got them to "write" on sand to form the letter "S".

How does that sound for your weekend activity with your child?

How does buoyancy work? Ask me!

Buoyancy is a huge and daunting word for children. In order to "decode" the mystery, we conducted a simple experiment using a leaf, some stones, a metal spoon, a disposable plastic spoon and a mandarin orange to teach our children the concept of "float and sink".

See what we found out!
