English

Oneducation offers two aspects of English courses

Phonics

Phonics is a method commonly used by children in English-speaking countries from the beginning of learning English. By allowing children to recognize the pronunciation rules of letters and letter combinations, a direct connection between letters and pronunciation is established, so that “when meeting words they are able to read , listening to sounds they are able to write them down in words”. Relevant statistics show that as a kind of spelling text in English, more than 80% of the words conform to the spelling rules.

Phonics teaching can not only greatly improve children’s ability to recognize and read words, but also improve the speed and accuracy of children’s memory of words, and at the same time, enhance children’s reading potential. Phonics is a breakthrough for children’s English learning. According to Piaget’s theory, “children have acquired cognitive abilities and can think more logically about objective things and experiences.” Combining children’s strong curiosity and rich imagination with their psychological characteristics and age characteristics, natural phonics teaching can easily be integrated into a story book that is interesting, rich in plot, and gives children enough imagination, instead of letting children practice their pronunciation through mechanical, isolated, and intensive pronunciation. Instead of letting the children master it boringly, let children learn it interestingly in the process of reading stories and experiencing the plot.

It is easy to learn to integrate into a story book that is interesting, rich in plot, and gives children enough imagination. It is not for children to master it through mechanical, isolated and intensive pronunciation practice, but for children to acquire the reading skills through reading the story and experiencing the plot interestingly.

AEIS/S-AEIS

There are many reasons for choosing Singapore

Good social security, Singapore is a garden city, with a high integrity government, very safe and a low crime rate society.

The bilingual environment and high-quality education make it easier for children and parents to integrate into the environment, develop children's language skills from an early age, and promote the development of comprehensive quality in all aspects.

Singapore’s unique accompanying student visa policy allows children starting at the age of 3 to apply for a student pass, and one of their mothers/Paternal grandmothers/Maternal grandmothers can apply for an LTVP(Peidu) visa.

Open student immigration policy, after taking the Singapore National Examination, you have the opportunity to apply for permanent residents and citizens.

The top universities, in the 2022 QS Global University Rankings, the National University of Singapore and Nanyang Technological University are ranked 1st and 2nd in Asia respectively.

Subsequently, why choose the government school system?

Because of the open student immigration policy, student has the opportunity to apply for permanent residence after taking the PSLE ​​exam.

The school fee is cost-effective. Although the school fee distance between private schools and government schools has gradually narrowed in recent years, considering that government primary and secondary schools are directly supervised by the Ministry of Education and the nationality ratio of class students, more parents feel that government schools are not the second choice.

What do non-Singapore citizen students (we collectively refer to as international students) need in order to enroll in government schools?

Since 2009, all students who want to enter Singapore government primary and secondary schools must refer to the AEIS/S-AEIS exam.

The exam content outline is as follows :

Exam content for primary 2 / 3

English test

The English test comprises 34 multiple-choice questions on comprehension and language use. Your child will be given 1 hour to complete the test:

Comprehension based on 2 passages (6 items)
Comprehension cloze based on 2 passages (10 items)
Vocabulary (5 items)
Grammar (5 items)
Spelling (8 items)

Mathematics test

The Mathematics test comprises 2 parts. Your child will be given 25 minutes to complete Part 1 and 40 minutes to complete Part 2:

Part 1: Multiple-choice questions (29 items)
Part 2: Short-answer questions (17 items)
The use of calculators is not allowed. For short-answer questions, your child will have to show the method of solution clearly by writing their working steps in the spaces provided in addition to providing the final answers.

Because the content of Primary 2/3 involves Primary 1 and Primary 2 content, the syllabus suitable for the content is selected according to the age of the child.

Primary 2/3 has no English Composition, only 34 multiple-choice questions, excluding the difficulty of writing, the actual competition is particularly intense, and the chance of enrollment will be greatly improved if one more point is obtained.

Primary 2/3 mathematics has relatively fewer knowledge points. Most of the multiple-choice questions in the first part are IQ Maths questions, and the answer time is 25 minutes to complete 29 questions, with an average of about 50 seconds to complete 1 question. Therefore, in addition to the correct rate of answering questions and the proficient practice of IQ question types, students must also pay attention to the grasp of the answering time. Short answer questions students need to be proficient in the question types and understand the questions.

Exams content : Primary 4-5

English test

The English test comprises 2 parts. Your child will be given 2 hours to complete Part 1 and Part 2. The paper is taken in a single sitting:

Part 1: Writing.

Prestigious International school courses

To allow more children to have a fair chance to study, we have prestigious international school entrance training courses for children.

The courses are divided into: pre-application training, such as: English improvement, personal description guidance, and some other related tests. Post-application training such as: interview guidance and related admission procedures.

Academic Improvement

According to the child’s current college/system/grade, as well as the child’s personality and level, a suitable teacher is matched.

Teachers in Oneducation not only have excellent academic backgrounds, rich professional knowledge, but also many years of teaching experience. All teachers have undergone strict screening, continuous training and periodic evaluation. Oneducation’s teachers are able to teach and motivate students effectively, and work closely with students to identify their strengths and weaknesses, track progress, and constantly revise goals.

The academic teacher will submit the lesson plan before the start of the course, and submit a student progress report and feedback every five lessons so that parents are able to understand the child’s learning progress and how to benefit from the tutoring.

Enrichment Course

Chinese Culture

Incorporating “Disciple Guidance”, “The Analects”, ancient poems, traditional Chinese festivals and culture as the entry point, so that children can learn more about Chinese traditional culture while learning Chinese.

“Respect your parents and love your brothers and sisters, followed by being cautious in your words and deeds and keeping your promises.
Love the public and get close to people with benevolence.

After learning your own ideology and morality, if you have extra energy and time, you should learn more and ask more. “

Science

For talented people in the 21st century, especially with its competitiveness, it is particularly important to cultivate students’ scientific literacy from an early age. Cultivate their scientific interest and innovative spirit, and use scientific abilities to sow the seeds of science in their hearts. Practice innovation in scientific and technological activities inside and outside of class.

5 themes of science courses:

  • Diversity
  • Cycle
  • System
  • Energy
  • Interaction

The knowledge points involved:

  • Biology
  • Physics
  • Earth Universe

English speech

In traditional Chinese culture, written language has always been more important than spoken language. However, in our current education system, there are no courses specifically aimed at improving oral expression skills.

In the implementation of PBL (Problem Based Learning), many coursework assignments are required to be presented in the form of public speeches. Objectively, they have exercised smooth and reasonable expression skills from an early age. At the same time, they promote free thinking and express their opinions in reading comprehension learning.

Mathematical thinking(IQ Maths)

In the unified examination of international schools entering government schools, there are so-called IQ questions in the mathematics section. To put it bluntly, there are some questions that test students’ thinking and “finding patterns”, but it is precisely the weakness of many children. No matter how good the math is in the same grade, there will be the so-called IQ Maths questions, there are always no “rules”. The cultivation of mathematical thinking is not something that can be cultivated overnight.
