Starting Primary One #20 - Term 3 Assessment

June holidays came and went at a blink of eye.  Now that the kids are back to school on 01 July 2013, you think maybe you can relax a little bit after the busy schedules you had with your children during the mid year term break.  I know I am glad that school reopens as DinoBoy gets to go back to his usual routine, it does not help that he has been asking me about the day and whether "school starts next week?" frequently.  Seems like the activities in student care centre is not enough to occupy his mind or perhaps he misses his classmates.

Anyway, 2 weeks into the new term and I got slapped with letters from school about the dreadful Term 3 Assessment.  Oh My God!!!!  The letters made me run around the house screaming my head off!!!  Of course in reality I only imagine that scene in my mind and I achieved the "Keep Calm and something" effect.  

Here are the letters for the Term 3 Assessment, showing clearly each subject's chapters covered & the marks allocated for each section.  (Pardon the photo of the Chinese letter, this is what happened when you asked a 7 year old to scan the document using the printer.)

This is also part of the reason I did up the Weekday To-Do List that I wrote about yesterday.  One of the task is to do some practice on the assessment book I bought earlier.  I really need to buck up to try to make motivate DinoBoy to work a little bit harder especially for his Chinese.  Let's hope that I'm able to guide him (without losing my patient and temper) and improve his grades better.

I am sharing DinoBoy's Primary One experiences in this series.  I hope it will serve as a useful guide to parents when its their time to get their child ready for the new journey and have an idea how Parent Volunteer works.

  1. Love your blog and the photos...I am sure it will all work out...I remember helping my goddaughter with her homework and it can be a challenge.
    Your son is blessed to have your dedication. Best wishes.

    1. Thanks Sharon! Its very tiring as I am a full time working mum and my son likes to do things slowly. Really challenging!
