The ELC learners showed some exciting works on learning the rhyme “Tommy Thumbs”.
This is a finger play rhyme to teach on every finger name starting from “Tommy Thumbs”, “Peter Pointers”, “Middle Men”, “Ruby Rings”, to “Baby Smalls”, with some simple action on different parts of their body.
The whole rhyme goes like this:
Tommy thumbs up, Tommy thumbs down,
Tommy thumbs dancing all around the town.
Dancing on your shoulders, dancing on your head.
Dancing on your knees, and tuck them into bed.
The learners can then substitute the “Tommy thumbs” to the next finger were able to sing the rhyme in rhythm and with simple fingers action. Shared here are some of the learner's videos.

Year 2 had started learning a new topic about “Fruits” in Chinese. In the first lesson, students were required to learn the fruit names and post their recording on Seesaw. In their second lesson, students will have a revision on fruit names. Students will be required to go through a process of learning through Quizlet. In Quizlet, students will have to learn the fruits flashcard and spell the fruit names in Chinese. The next step will be that students will have to take a test on their learning on fruit names on Quizlet. The last step will be students can have fun learning on Quizlet by matching the fruit name in Chinese to the correct fruit picture. To wrap up this topic, students need to complete some worksheets that are being assigned to them through Seesaw.

It’s Eid here or more well known as Hari Raya Aidilfitri in Malaysia. It is a victory celebration for all Muslims who are able to complete 30 days fasting during Ramadhan. Like other festivals, this time around it has to be celebrated at home with close-knit family members only. So there is no ‘balik kampung’ or open houses as usual for this year. It is the new normal Hari Raya, however, we still wish for all Muslims to have a wonderful time!
In the Malaysian Cultural Studies lessons for Ramadhan and Eid theme there were lots of impressive artworks and positive reflections from the students. We would like to share with you these beautiful works from our students. Terima kasih.
