Calling Primary 4, 5 & 6 Parents…

Are you aware of the latest trends in PSLE Science 2016-2018?

This is a PSLE 2018 question that uses a NEW situation, that your child may not have experienced before.

Unripe bananas are green and contain chlorophyll.

a) Bananas curve upwards when growing. Suggest a reason why bananas grow upwards.

b) Ripe bananas are yellow and give out gas Y. Prius wants to investigate whether gas Y will help unripe bananas to ripen more quickly. He has only the fruits below. He may use some or all of them.

Fruit Quantity
ripe banana 2
unripe banana 2

Prius use two identical clear containers for his investigation. What fruit(s) should he put inside the container for each setup?

Introducing “The BANANA” Question…

Everyone has seen bananas. But do you know why bananas curve upwards? Perhaps you may. But your child may not…

  • Is your child ready to tackle the familiar, yet be ready to face the unexpected?
  • Why do there seem to be questions in EVERY Science paper that throws students off and cause them to doubt their answers, no matter how prepared?
  • Avoid the snares, catches and pitfalls that may potentially happen in this informative 2-hour session for parents on trending PSLE Science Questions! 

 

 

This parent workshop aims to equip parents with a good understanding of what is expected in PSLE-type questions and how BEST to prepare for it.

 

  • A Year-by-Year Analysis of Trending PSLE Questions (2016/17/18) – their features, patterns & characteristics.
  • Benefit by learning what topics bear weight and what conceptual emphasis there is in the PSLE Science Exams.

 

  • The Critical Question Requirements that appear in EVERY Science paper. Be familar with questions requirements in open ended questions and MCQ question structures. {For example, how many times the word “Describe” appears in PSLE 2017 and how to go about answering that.}

 

  • Find out what concepts and commonly tested questions you can expect for every PSLE Science paper so that you can master them well {and yet there are still surprises!}

 

  • Strategies to tackle non-routine Open ended Questions {that throw students off} and how to prepare for them!

 

  • Understand WHY students face difficulty answering the PSLE Way: The 3 BIG mistakes that students make in their Open Ended Questions and how the P.E.A.K Science Heuristics methodology can change that.

Minimizing the UNKNOWNS in PSLE Science

Hi, my name is Jayce Or, and I am a PSLE Science Specialist. In my 16 years of teaching Primary Science in MOE schools and in tuition centers, I have observed the trends and patterns in the setting of Science questions in the PSLE and in schools.

As a experienced former PSLE Science marker, I am also more than familiar with the challenges that students face in trying to improve their Science grades.

Here are some that your child may already be experiencing:

1. Your child cannot seem to answer according to what the question demands.

2. He/She fails to pick out the correct clues in the question.

3. He/She cannot write answers to satisfy the full awarding of marks.

4. There seem to be ways of explaining and presenting his answer that is wrong.

4. He/She is stumped when faced with entirely new kinds of questions in situations that they have never seen or practiced before.

 

A Systematic Approach to Tackling PSLE Science

Over the years, I have developed the simple and proven PEAK™ Science Heuristics methodology that has helped hundreds of students unlock the tools for understanding and processing questions at a glance.

Simply put, many of my students achieve 1-2 grade improvements by the next exam.

At each run of my Primary Science Masterclassesparents will approach me to share more on how to guide their children wherever they are at.

There’s no one size fits all strategy.

Some students are weak in concept mastery. Some need to hone their understanding of question requirements. Others, need an added push to clarify why they are lacking the right techniques to score in their answers.

As an experienced and seasoned former PSLE Marker, I know how to dissect this and make this all easily understandable to you. 

In this session, you will see clearly how Science questions are formulated and feel less intimidated on what is expected in the PSLE Science Exam.

You will also pick up timely strategies to help your child prepare well with the recent question types seen in PSLE papers.

Parents SEMINAR:

Trending PSLE Science Questions 

I will be conducting a Parent Workshop: Trending PSLE Science Questions to reach out to parents out there who need support on how to guide their child towards a successful approach to PSLE Science!

𝗘𝘅𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲: Germinate’s Principal, seasoned PSLE Marker & PSLE Science Specialist, Jayce Or, brings with him over 17 years experience as a PSLE Science expert who knows the ins and outs to help parents support their child’s revision:

Here’s what some parents have said after OUR WORKSHOPS: 

 

“Hi Jayce, thanks for the Trending PSLE Science Questions workshop earlier. I really appreciate how you have summarised the past 3 years’ papers and provided such a clear visual overview of the breakdown/weightage of each topic; and also the type of skills E would need to have to tackle the questions. It’s useful that you cut through the tons of contents and singled out the difficult questions/topics in the 2 hours. It definitely helped me to empathise with E the amount of hard work she needs to put in. It’s my second parent workshop with you, and like the one last August, I walked away with a renewed focus on how to coach E in her CA next week. Thanks for being the ready helpline E can tap on whenever she has questions.” ~ HS, mother of E, P6.

With the info shared in the workshop, I am at least not so lost as to how I can identify my boy’s weakness. Thks to Jayce for your sincerity and selfless sharing!”~Cara, mother of P6 J

“It was a useful workshop as it has helped me better understand specific question requirements. I am more confident of guiding my son in tweaking his answers to suit the questions. Also appreciate the ‘secret’ info and tips! Thank you, Jayce. ~Shoba, mother of H, p6 

“A good sharing where i learnt about some of the techniques used in the science PSLE papers. I think this will allow me to share with my sons how to handle the questions in both sections A and B. Informing us about how the questions are set and the topics involved was really useful.’ ~ Aneesah, mother of P6

“It is informative. Handouts are useful and clear, using real PSLE past questions to better explain the trend. Mr Or is both friendly and approachable.’ ~ Lay Khoon, mother of P6
