Getting up to speed on academics isn’t about hitting the books all the time. Sure, grades are serious business, but as most of you savvy mums would know, there’s more to learning than just memorising equations. And when school’s out this June, getting on top of your child’s curriculum takes on a whole new level of fun at The Learning Lab – the enrichment centre has a slew of programmes that introduces subjects such as math and science through interactive activities for the kids.
Putting the fun in learning
So, how exactly do these lessons work? Simple – they combine play, craft and hands-on activities that are in line with the subject of the day. The Junior Explorers Camp brings young campers on an imaginary adventure that spans Rome, China, and even the African savannah, all while being immersed in topics like English, mathematics and Chinese. At the Amazing World of Science, kids aged five to 10 will be taking on the roles of a junior zoologist, a junior astronaut and a chemist in classes about the animal kingdom, the solar system and chemistry.
Developing new skills
If you want your child to ace the public speaking arena like a pro, then sign them up for the Communicating with Confidence course. They’ll be taught the fundamentals of oral communication and pronunciation, as well as expressions, tone and speech. Want more of these courses? See the full range of workshops here.
Building a solid foundation
For parents of kids who’ve been falling behind their curriculums, The Learning Lab also offers intensive revision programmes for P3-6 students. It’s crunch time for these kids, as the modules are specially designed to reinforce a critical understanding of core subjects.
Tried and tested!
Don’t just hear about these programmes from us; here’s what parent Angeline Sim has to say about The Learning Lab experience: “The synopses of the camps are very interesting. For example, at the Math camp, kids get to apply mathematics concepts such as geometry, length and volume in the planning, design and construction of a 3D model city. Through these interactive sessions, my daughter had the opportunity to hone her problem-solving, critical thinking and analytical skills that’ll help her tackle the Primary 3 curriculum.”
