Programme for Active Learning (PAL)
Programme for Active Learning (PAL) continues
at P2 to nurture the whole child and broaden his or her primary school
foundation and experience.
PAL is carried out during curriculum time and it consists of two broad areas in 4 modules:
1. Sports and Games and Outdoor Education
2. Performing Arts and Visual Arts
JSPS, PAL is conducted over 3 periods a week during scheduled PAL periods for
Lower School students. At P2, activities
for PAL are differentiated in terms of the skills learnt from the lessons. In other words, learning for PAL is progressive from P1 to P2 in terms of social emotional learning.
Executive Functioning and Mindfulness Practice @ P2
Lower School hopes that students
will be nurtured through making use of self-directed strategies to think and
accordance to values, thoughts, emotions and behaviour. At P2, students not only are aware of their character strengths,
they must be able to tap on their character strengths to enhance their relationships with their family and friends.
Students practise compassion and responsibility in their day-to-day activities. Through mindfulness practices and
executive functioning activities, students' social intelligence and self-regulation is learned and developed. From FTGP
sessions to PAL, students recognise their own strengths and are equipped with the abilities and capacities to influence
their peers positively.
Learning Journeys (LJs)
One of the best ways to broaden our
students’ minds is through exposing them to the world outside the confines of
the classrooms. Students learn not only through the classroom but also through experiential learning when they are out of
the classrooms together. LJs give them the chance to break out of their academic routine. Learning can take place
anywhere and everywhere.
There are a series of LJs planned
for the P2s across various academic subjects and more information will be
nearer to the dates of the respective LJs.
National Orchid Gardens
National Education/Social Studies
Esplanade: Feed Your Imagination
More information will be made available to parents nearer to date of LJ.
