2019 Dec Holiday Programmes
This December holidays, we combine the essentials of the old and new, past and future.
KRTC Simei’s holiday camp – Survivor: Island Edition will transport students to a deserted island where they will learn the basic skills of survival as well as develop skills in technology. In addition, they will get to chronicle their adventures and leave their legacy via a website they build that is uniquely and only theirs.
We have fun programmes for K1 – Sec 1 ! You name it, we have it!
Creative Writing P3-P6
Students will be the Robinson Crusoes of their own islands and write about the adventures they encounter as deserted island dwellers. In the style of Lord of the Flies, they will chronicle life in the wild, from setting up shelters to feeding themselves to making signals to get rescued. It’s not just physical survival adventures but also emotional ones as they have to try to work together and govern themselves. Will peace prevail or anarchy conquer?
To help them visualise these, students will take archery lessons, experience Sentosa’s 4D Adventureland, make slime to trap animals for food and be inspired by how one man survived alone in Cast Away. They will be engaged in creative writing not only about their own experiences but also stories with themes of Teamwork, Overcoming Adversity and Resilience – all topics that are covered for PSLE composition. On top of that, each student will build their own unique websites and creatively blog about their adventures. Between writing interesting stories and building an amazing website, there are plenty of opportunities to exercise creativity. What’s more, their website will have their name on the URL, be theirs for life and get lifetime support!
Coding with Drone P3-P6
Drones provide excellent opportunities for STEM learning as Learn to code and programme drones to fly specific patters while becoming familiar with the internal electronics that makes drones work. Reacting to changes in flight patterns or environment allows your child to improve cognitive reasoning skills. They will gain a better understanding of cause and effect – and be better equipped to make quick decisions under stress.
Our coding with drones, students will use Scratch with their Tello and programme 4 categories of blocks including sounds. They will execute a basic planned flight and take part in The Tech Challenge where they have to demonstrate making loops in addition to taking off and landing. An analysis of the challenges faced and a reflection of how they could have improved the flight will allow them to better their abilities for future, and more complicated flights. Students can continue their fun and learning after the course by purchasing the drones they have programmed at special prices.
Junior Scratch Coding K1-P2
Scratch is a block-based visual programming language and online community targeted primarily at children. The service is developed by the MIT Media Lab, has been translated into 70+ languages, and is used in most parts of the world connecting children and helping them improve their coding skills. Give your child a head start in learning Scratch Coding. Create stories, games and animations. Share with others around the world!
Lego Robotics K1-P2
Our very popular Lego Robotics is back!! This time, in tune with our Survivor Island theme, students get to build and programme a prehistoric centipede, a draconian dinosaur and a monolithic monorail – the exact same creations seen on the blockbuster, Jurassic World!
This holiday, get your child to be ready for Smart Nation Singapore by learning coding and acquiring computational thinking skills. Get them prepared for an increasingly digital world. At the same time, get them skilled in survival tactics of a prehistoric world too! Get the best of the past and the future in our Lego Robotics!
“Get Ready for a New Level in Life!!”
Is your child starting P1? Sitting for PSLE? Embarking on a new era in Sec 1? Starting Sec 3? Taking O or A Level?
If your child is facing any of the key milestones in 2020, it’s essential to get a head start into the new year before school starts and the stressful madness begins! Use the December holidays to get your child prepared for what’s coming in 2020, be it a new life in P1 or Sec 1 or a major critical exam or a whole new level of academic challenges in Sec 3.
Our programmes provide a strong and solid foundation for your child, by exposing them to highly challenging academic scopes. They will hone their analytical prowess to a high degree, be stimulated to think critically and develop their inclination to think out-of-the-box when given various mathematical and reasoning problems. Abstract higher-order thinking concepts and strategies learnt in this programme provides a head start to grasping advanced curriculums in their future.
Come join us this December for the Academic Level Up and Bridging programmes for 2020.
