P6 Open House@CGS
The Primary 6 Open House is an annual event where we open our gates to the Primary 6 students and showcase the best of Crescent. It is an opportunity for all Crescentians to share their passions with their potential juniors through platforms such as lesson demos on LSCEP, Communicative Arts, and CCA performances and booths.
This year, I am glad to be given the opportunity to participate in the lesson demo on LSCEP, a uniquely Crescentian programme which aims to equip all Crescentians with key ICT literacy competencies.
The afternoons leading up to the event were intense as we had to prepare and practise for the lesson demo. My role was to introduce coding to the visitors and share my learning process with them. During the demonstration, my teammate, Shreya and I had to perform the mammoth task of figuring out an easy code to make the drone perform tricks – flying in a circle and then doing a flip. What I thought was going to be an easy task turned out to be a rather arduous one! It took us multiple times to get it right. However, in the end we succeeded and managed to get the drone to fly up using a very elegant code.
Prior to the demo, I was very nervous in front of the parents because I did not know how they were going to react to our demonstrations. I was pleasantly surprised by the visitors who looked very happy and contented with our lesson demo and that lifted the heavy weight off of my shoulders.
The lesson demos were very engaging and left a good impression on the parents. Overall, I felt this event gave me a new experience in challenging myself to solve real-world problems and enabled me step out of my comfort zone to develop myself further.
