Partnership with parents

Ø Parents’ workshop was conducted in order for parents to better support their child at home.

Ø Tips for parents:

§ Use the 4-step approach when solving word problems

§ Use proper mathematical language and everyday objects to teach mathematics

§ Encourage your child to revise constantly (e.g. use of Student Learning Space (SLS) for self-directed learning at home)
