West Spring’s Current Events
Our Primary 3 to Primary five students use the Little Red Dot (LRD) newspaper as a platform to focus on English language learning, news and current events, as well as emotional learning, values education, and national education. The articles in the LRD provide many discussion topics for students and teachers of West Spring Primary School. Students’ critical-thinking abilities developed through such engagements, which allow them to world views by staying well informed and self-directed in their use of knowledge, discerning reality from falsity by critically processing and analysing information.

Students were to think creatively and critically while using problem-solving skills to solve a variety of innovative Math topics and scenarios. These sessions are a requirement of the course.
