Primary Three

Primary Two has been great, let’s make Primary Three better!

Primary Three is a critical year and the best time to start tuition if you haven’t. Reasons being:

  1. Final year examinations are going to take place at the end of Primary 3. Most students are not ready for examinations since there aren’t any in Primary 1 nor 2.
  2. Students will see a sudden jump in difficulty levels in Primary 4 and so Primary 3 is an important milestone to cross. With a good foundation at Primary 3, children will find it easier to pick up skills in Primary 4

Here’s some exciting news for you! 95% of our students score 90 and above for their end-of-year examinations.

What’s more, our students score well not just in the subjects they are taking with us but for all subjects they are taking in school thanks to our Executive Function Stimulations as part of the ILLAC programme.

We are NOT results-oriented and NONE of our students are drilled extensively and relentlessly for good results. Instead, our students are developed through an enhancement of their Learning Abilities and their love for learning using Brain Priming activities, Speed Reading, customised learning and an extremely motivating learning environment.

Our ILLAC Program™ (Primary to Secondary) offers English, Mathematics and Science on separate days. (If you are keen in getting your child into GEP, please enrol for both subjects because both English and Mathematics will be tested in the screening examinations (Mother-Tongue will not be tested). The teacher will advise if your child is suitable for our GEP training after close observation in class.)

Here’s a list of skills required of students in Primary 3.
