Abstract: In the MOE Workplan Seminar on 29th September 2004, Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam said, “We want to nurture young Singaporeans with minds that keep inquiring…. We want our young to have the toughness of „adversity quotient‟…to work hard to achieve their dreams. If we, as teachers. are to prepare such learners, we need to change the way we teach and the way our pupils learn. They need to have effective communication skills and good interpersonal social skills and they need to become inquiring, life-long learners. SEED (Strategies for Effective and Engaged Development), the current MOE programme being implemented in P1 classrooms, provides the opportunity to develop such an education. This programme creates the opportunity to develop strategies that can kindle the curiosity and creativity of children so that they can be the sort of engaged learners described by Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam. In this paper we will describe how Compassvale Primary School has developed both curriculum and pedagogical practices to encourage such learning.
