CBK Intractive Lessons

We provide computer-aided education for all our K1 and K2 pupils to enhance learning and to familiarise children with computer vocabulary, basic keyboard skills and eye-hand coordination through manipulating the mouse in a controlled environment.

CBK Show and Tell

Show & Tell / Picture Talks

This is conducted in both English and Chinese languages. During these sessions, there will be sharing of information, thoughts and feelings. This helps to develop the child’s listening, understanding, vocabulary and language skills.  He/She will also develop social and emotional skills to empathise with others’ views and opinions. 

General knowledge is also added into the lesson. Children are encouraged to share their experiences with their friends during this time slot.

 

It is a chance for preschoolers to take a center stage in front of other children. This helps a child to learn and experience public speaking - a skill a child will use throughout his/her life.

Music & Movement

The Music & Movement programme encourages children to develop an appreciation for music, awareness of beats and rhythms through singing of songs, playing of percussion instruments. Children are made aware of attributes such as pace, pitch or loudness as well as singing to tune and melody.  They are also encouraged to make various bodily movements when they are working through the songs.
