Home-Based Learning

Dear Parents / Guardians,

The school will be having Home Based Learning from 17 May 2021.

Your child/ward will be provided with instructions on how to access the HBL materials by his/her teachers via the Student Learning Space. Our school’s HBL consists of both online and offline approaches to learning. More details regarding HBL, including the lesson schedules from Primary 1 to 6, will be put up here

Please click 
here to access our HBL timetables and lesson instructions (from 17 May onwards).

Instructions for Students:

  • Start your day right by waking up on time and have your breakfast before 8 a.m.
  • Find a comfortable and well-lit room in the house for home-learning. Minimize distractions.
  • Be punctual for your HBL lessons. Establish a daily routine when learning from home by following closely to your HBL class timetable.
  • Ensure that your learning materials and Login ID and Passwords for your SLS and/or Google Classroom accounts are with you before the start of the lessons.
  • Your attendance for the HBL lessons is expected. If for any reason you miss the HBL lessons on a particular day, please inform your teachers and ensure that you make up for the missed lessons.
  • Take short breaks in between to rest. Limit your screen time during HBL to about 2 hours each day.
  • Put forth your best effort, as the HBL learning tasks are part of your school lessons.
  • When you take part in ‘live’ lessons conducted by your teachers, dress in the school T-shirt or a proper T-shirt and follow your teachers’ instructions. Be mindful of your language and show respect to your teachers and classmates during online discussions or chats.
  • Practise good online etiquette and behaviours. Keep your personal information private and do not share your passwords with anyone. Follow closely to the instructions given by your teachers for online lessons and only visit the educational websites/portals that they have provided.
  • Disciplinary actions will be taken against any student who demonstrates undesirable online behaviours, especially Cyber-bullying. Please inform your teachers if you need help.

Tips for Parents:

  • Work out a daily routine with your child to be engaged in learning during HBL.

  • Set goals and schedule tasks with him/her to instil self-discipline and time-management skills. For further tips on guiding your child in setting goals, refer to the Resilience Boosters at https://go.gov.sg/selresforparents

  • Establish times for your child to turn off screens. Each HBL Plan recommends a maximum of 2 hours of online learning everyday. Encourage your child to take short   breaks in between, and have healthy offline activities, such as physical activities, reading books or playing board games with family members. 

  • Encourage your child to maintain an optimistic and positive outlook while accepting the changes and emotions that he/she has had to face as part of going through HBL

  • Please reach out to the school or teachers with suggestions or for help for HBL.
