The next big milestone: P1 orientation

Our little one is growing up too fast and furious. Before I know it, he’s going Primary 1 soon! Nonetheless, I’m enjoying the journey of growing up together with him (while i’m growing old). It’s such a great privilege to watch him reaching each milestone, from starting his first word and now starting his first “big” school. Starting primary school is a major milestone!

It was an early morning and we headed off to his primary school for his P1 orientation. Immediately when we reached, soon-to-be P1 students and parents were separated. We were being led to the school hall for some performances by current P1 students and a speech by principal on how to prepare our children for P1.

Later, we were being led to the classrooms to fill up some forms and when that’s done, parents can pick up their soon-to-be P1 students from their respective classrooms. I’m glad that my boy mixed well with his classmates. When we were there to pick him up, everyone was waving and saying bye to each other.

We moved on to getting his books and uniforms. Everything was very well organised and it went through smoothly. Before we know it, it was lunch time and we headed off to the canteen for lunch. A very good chance to expose and prepare him to the different food stalls and how to get his own food.

Got a drink for himself and for his little sister too!

We’ve even got a book from MOE that assist the parents and child on transitioning from preschool to primary school.

Not sure how my parents felt when I started out my journey to P1 and I don’t remember there’s orientation such as this. Now that I have become a parent, I am definitely excited and the same goes for my boy. We can’t wait to embark on this new journey!

I am a busy mummy of 2 wonderful kids. Their thirst for learning has made me busy researching and making learning resources/materials for them. Most of the time will be according to the topics that they have requested. Otherwise, I will randomly pick a topic and create the materials for them. Most of the time, the materials will include right brain training as well. From them, I get to learn a lot too! However, material preparation is quite a challenge! It will even be more challenging if you are a working parent! Here, I would love to share what we have done and hope busy parents out there will find our materials useful for their little one. If you have any queries/comments or if you have any topics that you would like to cover with your little one(s), do drop me a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can :) Our mission is to find, discover and reveal the fun of kids learning! Drop us a message if you are interested in any of our materials. Let's make learning fun!
