Abstract: 
Limited Singapore research indicated a lack of exposure of modelling tasks at primary levels.
Teacher reflection is used as a tool in design research cycles exploring the potentials of
modelling tasks in a Singapore primary five classroom. Findings reveal that the teacher
identified three potentials of a modelling task on children’s mathematisation process: the task
provided a platform for children to (a) identify variables and form relationships between
them, (b) relate school-based math learning to real-world experiences, and (c) justify their
mathematical models. Implications on the promotion of modelling tasks at primary schools
as well as teacher education are drawn.
