Current Affairs: Research and Analysis

A knowledge of Current Affairs forms the bedrock of developing intellectual and emotional maturity in children. Helping children build awareness beyond the four walls of a classroom might seem like a tall task for both parents and students. However, in this workshop, students will be exposed to a range of media and topics while building on media literacy. We will teach students how to make sense of and form opinions about various news topics. Through reflection, they will learn how to analyse and grasp the context of  articles and posts from each type of medium.

Having an understanding of Current Affairs can benefit students in many ways. Through constant exposure to Current Affairs, students cultivate a sense of wonder through which they can develop higher order thinking skills. Even values like resilience and empathy can be built through being well-informed of the happenings around the world. Not only that, students will also benefit academically as a knowledge of Current Affairs will be advantageous in honing writing skills as well as giving them an improved answering ability in Comprehension Open-ended, Comprehension Cloze and the oral exam. Suitable for students going to P5 and P6 in 2022.

Students will have a task at the end of every lesson, they can choose to submit, but the homework will not be marked. Teachers will give an overview and maybe display good works.

Transitioning to a new normal: Tenopy is giving back to our student community by reducing the usual charges of our holiday workshops by 50%.
