Welcome back to school! Welcome to the new school year 2017-2018 in Sekolah Victory Plus. We feel so excited to see the new batch of Grade 4.

This school year is going to be awesome with the “Entrepreneur Me” as our school highlight. Students have great expectation to this. We believe that they will be more courageous and responsible a year ahead. They will work more confidently  in teamwork as well as individual.

We are also very welcome to work hand in hand with parents as our educational partners to facilitate and motivate our students so that they are able to enjoy the learning, moreover, challenge themselves to grow better each day.

English “Who we are” (Aug –Sept 2017)

Central idea – Effective interactions between human body systems contribute to health

In English, we will be supporting the HRT’s with the UOI. We will be following the line of inquiry that deals with the impact our life style choices have on our body. We will focus on healthy eating and exercise. At the end of the first unit of study, our students will all do our first “BIG WRITE”. The “BIG WRITE” will be a piece of descriptive writing about healthy foods they have tasted during the unit. We will also focus on developing speaking and listening skills, reading skills and writing skills that will enable us to be successful with the end of unit assessment.
