Pre-school holiday programmes

About these courses

These courses are suitable for students currently studying in Nursery 1 to Kindergarten 2.

We have four courses available for this level:

  • Magic and Music (N1- N2)
  • Fun and Fantasy (K1 - K2)
  • The Land of Dinosaurs (K1)
  • Reading Booster (K2)

OUR PRE-SCHOOL HOLIDAY COURSES COVER THE FOLLOWING::

mAGIC AND MUSIC (N1 - N2)

In this Timmy-themed holiday program, little learners will explore the world of Timmy as he creates magic and music, all culminating in a performance of their own. Throughout the week, learners will focus on the onomatopoeia sounds of instruments – bang!  ring! strum!  - to begin to develop phonics blend sounds. They will cultivate confidence through speech and drama activities and improve fine motor skills with their musical and artistic creations, such as sock puppets and musical instruments. Don't miss the class’s music and magic show on the final day! 

Fun and Fantasy (K1 - K2)

Students will watch Timmy and his friends on their "Fun and Fantastic" adventures in order to practice their listening skills and begin the basics of listening and oral comprehension. The theme will also be explored through nursery rhymes, storybooks and arts and craft to build pronunciation, improve literacy and foster creativity.

THE LAND OF DINOSAURS (K1)

Stories relating to dinosaurs will be shared and children will have opportunities to create their own dinosaur and learn to describe it. On the last day, each child/group will present their dinosaur to the class. Children will learn to listen and give constructive comments.

READING BOOSTER (K2)

If your child is struggling to read and needs extra support before beginning Primary 1, then the NEW Reading Booster course will be hugely beneficial.
