12 Aug Pre-School Online Classes
Global Oak Tree Scholars (GOTS) International School has extended the online hours for its pre-primary scholars following requests from parents.
Understandably, the coaches were worried about too much screen time for the little ones, but hit upon an innovative way to make the extra hours a joy, rather than a chore, for the pre-schoolers.
Head of Pre-Primary, Chithra Nair, said the three additional classes introduced this month were Speech and Drama, Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and Craft and Music Appreciation.
“We have not compromised on the educational quality with the previous timetable. The additional three classes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays would add a different element,” said Chithra.
“The extra classes would be more fun and expressive. While still imparting lessons, there are more activities, where they can express their artistic side.”
She explained that music appreciation is not about learning how to play musical instruments, as not all scholars would have instruments of their own.
“We play a musical piece, and they would have to listen carefully to identify the instruments, and tell us what it is.
“Later on, we will teach them how to keep to the beat of the music, and so forth. It teaches them how to listen and appreciate music.”
As for ICT, Chithra said there would be plenty of interactive games related to schoolwork.
“Our first speech and drama class by coach Alesia Dhana was well-received by the little ones. They had so much fun,” said Chithra.
“They could sing, act out and be expressive. It is a good way to unwind after focusing on the lessons.”
Chithra added that the scholars are also working on Merdeka-themed craft projects by using recyclable objects.
This project is separate from their usual arts and crafts class that is already on the timetable.
