Building a Lifelong Learning Community

At SSIS, we are committed to developing in our students a passion for life and learning. We hope that our parents can join us on this journey as well, and grow together as a community.

SSIS’s Parent Education Programme (PEP) is centred on the premise that parents are their child’s first and most influential teachers. We believe that one of the best ways to develop and nurture our students to be lifelong learners is for the adults to model and lead by example – by first adopting lifelong learning practices.

Come explore, learn, and be inspired!

Recording links will be shared and updated on this website.

Please let us know any other topics you are interested in!

Primary English and Chinese Language Virtual Workshops

Our Primary School English and Chinese Language Departments have come together to organise a series of virtual workshops to help you better understand the Primary curriculum and equip you with skills to help your child learn at home.

 

Date: 21 October

Time: 3:50 – 4:50 pm

 

Phonics in Grade 1

This workshop allows parents to learn how phonics allows children to segment their words into individual sounds (each sound is known as a phoneme). Segmenting words into phonemes help children become better readers and spellers. Some of the skills used in the classroom will be shared with the parents during this workshop.

Reading and Phonics in Grade 2

This workshop concentrates on phonics, spelling and helpful reading strategies used in the classroom. Parents will also be introduced to phonics and how they can help their child become better readers and spellers. During the reading portion parents will be shown a range of questioning techniques and strategies which enhance their reading experience with their own child at home.

This workshop offers an introduction to the content and instructional practices used in Grade 5 and Grade 6 English to develop students’ writing skills.

Building Language at Home Through Play

Suitable for Preschool Parents

Date: 18 November

Time: 9:30-11:00

What we will cover:

  • What is Play?
  • Why is Play important in Early Childhood?
  • What are the benefits of play for language development?
  • Practical tips on how you can help to build your child’s language development through Play at home?

Maria Montessori once said, “Play is the work of the child”. It starts from a tender age. It is how children discover their interests, interact with others and acquire cognitive, motor and social-emotional skills. Play is important for the early stages of brain development and also help to develop important skills for learning, life and work.

We believe that one of the best ways to develop and nurture language development for our pre-schoolers is by supporting and providing high-quality play.

In this workshop, we will share with you how children learn through play, tips on how to choose toys for language development and how you can be involved in your child’s play

  • Ms Rose ANUAR
