Monday will mark the start of the PSLE Oral. I have been consolidating and testing all that we have learnt in the past year with my students.

My students have kindly helped me compile their school’s preliminary oral themes and questions. Instead of structuring the list under schools, I decided to structure the list according to the 4 main themes tested during the Preliminary Oral in my students’ schools.

The main themes were:

  • Volunteering
  • Recycling
  • Neighbourhood & Community
  • Health

Some questions asked were rather straight forward while others required more thought. We hope that the list will be useful for you as you do your revision this weekend. We, at Thinking Factory, wish you all the best for the PSLE Oral!
