Show and Tell
In 2009, The Primary Education’s Review and Implementation (PERI) committee recommended that our children grow up to be confident persons, adept at working in teams and able to communicate their thoughts and ideas effectively. Hence, in response to the recommendation, Fuchun Primary introduced "Show and Tell".
“Show and Tell” is a technique to teach young children the skills of public speaking. Through this performance task, pupils develop their oracy skills by talking about something that is close to their hearts. “Show and Tell” provides an opportunity for pupils to express their opinions in a non-threatening way and gives teachers insight into their pupils’ level of competency in public speaking. Through the use of a rubric, feedback is given to pupils and their parents.
Hey, look at me! I am Batman and my friend is a knight!
Learning journeys are conducted each year to extend and enrich our pupils’ educational experience. For our Primary 1 and 2 pupils, the learning journeys are opportunities to make real and concrete what has been learnt in school. The visit to the Singapore Science Centre is made more meaningful and relevant for our pupils as they take on a multi-disciplinary approach. For the Primary 1 and 2 pupils, Art, Music, English, Mathematics and Science are incorporated in their journey to the Singapore Science Centre. By viewing exhibits which are on display in the Science Centre, the pupils will be able to learn through various modes (kinaesthetic and tactile). These visits are indeed an integral part of the formal curriculum, enhancing the total learning experience of the pupils.
MUSICAL LEARNING JOURNEY 2017 (P2) – TERM 1
On 21 February 2017, our Primary 2 had the opportunity to embark on a fun and enriching learning journey to watch a musical, ‘The Ant and The Grasshopper’ at the SOTA Drama Theatre.
The highly interactive musical allowed its audience to sing and dance along during the performance, which raised the enthusiasm in our highly participative pupils. Through the live musical, our pupils also got to learn more about audience etiquette, values and morals reflected by the characters and how the various musical aspects such as tempo and mood of music ties in with the sequence of events in a story.
It was an enjoyable and memorable experience for our pupils that day as they were truly in awe after watching an outstanding cast put up such a marvellous play.

P2 Learning Journey to the Singapore Science Centre
In conjunction with the STELLAR book, ‘World of Tools’, the pupils learnt about tools in a fun and interactive manner. They learnt how tools work and how they help us in our daily life. Some of the tools mentioned were a screwdriver and screws, a hammer and nails, nuts and bolts, a wrench and a saw. During the lesson, the pupils were given a chance to make and bring home their own craft activity of a simple machine.
After the lesson, the pupils went on to explore two stations at Hall B. These activities involved a collaboration between the English Language and the Mathematics Departments. The pupils went to the Climate Change section where they learnt about the tools used in a weather forecast. This activity ties in appropriately with the STELLAR book, ‘What Will The Weather Be Like Today’. The pupils learnt about rain gauge, anemometer and sunshine recorder. They were also exposed to the different weather conditions that affect Singapore such as Monsoon Surge, Squalls, Haze and Convention Thunderstorm.
At the Number Line Tightrope found in the Math Exhibition Hall, the pupils did an activity based on the topic of Picture Graph as well as Addition and Subtraction.
The pupils enjoyed their day at the SSC tremendously. There was never a dull moment. It was a day well spent and they wished to have more of it.

Our school takes part in the RHB-Straits Times Spelling Competition every year. On 26 March 2016, 20 outstanding students who had emerged from our inter-class spelling contest represented Fuchun Primary School in the biggest Big Spell Round of the National Spelling Championship jointly hosted by RHB and The Straits Times. Our students thoroughly enjoyed themselves as they competed with over 1,800 students from various schools in Singapore. They also displayed great resilience as they sat through an hour-long written test without relying on spell checks. It was truly a memorable and invaluable experience!
Excitedly waiting for the event to

Every Monday, a parent volunteer or a teacher will first read aloud some selected books with the pupils. After which, the pupils will engage in some activities related to the book. These activities include art and craft and speech and drama.
Every week, one pupil will be chosen to be the group leader and don the group leader hat.
