Maths and Science are the two subjects which primary school students usually have interest to study. Sometimes it is a big challenge for students in this pandemic situation. Our school wanted to make activity more fun for students to do online. All teachers of both subjects have an event for the students to compete and participate, which support the students to be more active and to be a thinker.
Saint Nicholas School PIK has its own way to educate its students towards becoming skillful and willing to learn Maths and Science in fun and interesting way. Saint Nicholas School PIK held an event themed “When learners become thinkers” for primary school students of Grades 1 to 6. The competition was held online by using QUIZIZZ and ZOOM. Students had so much fun during the competition even though it was virtual.
The event was held in three days, starting from Monday, March 29th to Wednesday, March 31st . The first day was for Primary 1 and 2 students, followed by Primary 3 and 4 on the second day and last but not least Primary 5 and 6 students on the last day. There were 15 multiple choice questions for the participants to be done correctly. The participants were required to join www.joinmyquizizz.com from their browser, then they needed to input the code to join the competition given by the host. After that, they input their name and class to identify themselves. When all the participants had joined in the host guided them. The competition started right after the host clicked the start button on the QUIZIZZ.
“I am so ready and excited for this competition”, Said Kimberly Halim P3C. Some students said they were nervous and relieved after the competition was over. “I am so Ready”, said Edbert Primary 2A student.
“Hopefully, after the competition, the students will be more energize and excited in doing the online class for both subjects Math and Science” said Ms. Nora.
“I hope that every student will be a great thinker in class for Math and Science and they will enjoy the classes in the next term” said Mr. Daniel.
The announcement of the winners was held on Monday April 5th, 2021 via zoom. There were 3 winners from each level. Each of the winner were awarded with a trophy, certificate and medal. We hope that all the participants would give a great impact to the other learners at school and to be skillful in Maths and Science.
