Project Work

Project Work at Yew Tee Primary School is a 5 – year programme that is carried out from P1 to P5 and is based on a framework that covers 4 key areas of Knowledge Application, Communication, Collaboration and Independent Learning. These are aligned to the non-academic traits of Curiosity, Confidence and Co-operation (3Cs) which are important for a 21st century learner. Project Work is also an important platform for SEL (especially social awareness and management that is incorporated in the Collaboration segment) and character development based on the school’s character development goals and school values.

At YTPS, we adopt Creative Problem Solving (CPS) as the main pedagogical approach for PW, so that the pupils can approach their project task in an imaginative and innovative way. It is a tool that helps them to re-define the problems they face, come up with breakthrough ideas and then take action on these new ideas

Another key feature of PW at YTPS is the interdisciplinary nature of the tasks. The project at each level is anchored on a subject (EL, Math, Science, MT and Aesthetics). It taps on a designed Learning Journey used either as a key stimulus, springboard or as a culmination of the project.

Knowledge Application
Pupils will acquire the ability to make links across different areas of knowledge and to generate, develop and evaluate ideas and information so as to apply these skills to the project task.
Communication Pupils will acquire the skills to communicate effectively and to present ideas clearly and coherently to specific audience in both the written and oral forms.
Collaboration   Pupils will acquire collaborative skills through working in a team to achieve common goals.
Independent Learning   Pupils will be able to learn on their own, reflect on their learning and take appropriate actions to improve it.

Assessment for Project Work is summative and informal in nature. At the end of the project, an individual grade would be given for each of the 4 main domains of Project Work.

  1. Knowledge Application
  2. Communication
  3. Collaboration
  4. Independent learning

Pupils will be assessed using a set of performance rubrics, which would be communicated to pupils at the start of the project. Pupils will be assessed by teachers in the 4 domains stated above and the marks achieved will be translated into grades (A, B or C) and reflected in the report book.
