The Thinking Cap Programme by MindChamps

The Thinking Cap Programme was first developed by the expert team at MindChamps to deliver new ways of learning and prepare students of all ages for success in the competitive and demanding educational environment today.
It is specially designed to focus on age-appropriate Learning How To Learn techniques and strategies that can be applied to the MOE’s (Ministry of Education) curriculum.
Through this programme, your child will be empowered with the crucial learning, thinking and communication skills needed to excel in school and beyond.

Did you know statistics have shown that scoring well in school exams takes more than just having good academic skills?

In fact, your child needs to have a healthy level of self-confidence and motivation to excel in his/her studies. This stems from having the right mindset, which comprises of emotional intelligence and resilience to overcome the inevitable challenges he/she will face in his/her academic journey.
Coupled with the right learning techniques, your child can learn more effectively at school – they will understand things better and faster, which eventually leads to greater self-confidence for him/her.

Is Your Child Prepared For The Shift In PSLE Focus?

With Ministry of Education’s (MOE) shift of focus in PSLE scoring system that will come into effect in 2021, your child will be experiencing a very different kind of education altogether. Instead of being graded on their academic skills, your child will be assessed on his/her aptitude and overall development.
This means PSLE assessment system will be shifting away from traditional rote learning, i.e. drilling your child with assessment books, spotting questions and relying on memorizing answers can no longer work in getting your child ready for PSLE examinations.
In this case, how can you help your child to be PSLE-ready?
