Singapore (4 - 5)

  • Introduction

Grade 4 & 5 of education in Singapore is also referred to as Primary Education. It is a four-year foundation stage (Primary 1 to 4) followed by a two-year orientation stage (Primary 5 to 6).
The foundation stage is the first stage of formal schooling and is compulsory for every student to attend.

Based on the results of the PSLE, students are admitted in schools for secondary education.

  • Key features and highlights of the curriculum

The goal of the curriculum is to provide students with practical knowledge and skills that will help to solve challenges in the real world. Singapore’s school system encourages project work and creative thinking. As a result, classes focus on equipping students with particular problem-solving skills and knowledge in the subjects.
Bilingualism, or mother tongue policy, is another important principle of the Singapore education system. The objective of this policy is to promote English as the Global Language and at the same time students can learn about their own cultural values.
