ENTHUSIASTIC primary school pupils could not contain their excitement as they engaged in fun activities at the Kuntum UPSR Workshop 2016.

They listened attentively to the teachers, discussed with each other and took the opportunity to ask questions during the event.

The workshop received overwhelming response not just from Year Six pupils who will be sitting the UPSR examination in September but also other primary school pupils.

The participants were given helpful tips on how to answer examination questions accurately and fast, briefed on the latest exam format as well as common mistakes, including a segment on self-motivation at the annual workshop.

The one-day workshop, organised by Star Media Group and Kuntum, a monthly Bahasa Malaysia educational magazine published by Star Media Group, was from 8.30am to 6pm at Menara Star in Petaling Jaya.

Bahasa Melayu, English, Mathematics and Science were taught by well-trained and experienced teachers well-versed in the latest UPSR format.

Anna Miasarah Haulilah, 12, from Sri Utama School, said she had improved tremendously after attending the workshop.

“We were taught how to answer correctly according to the marking scheme to get full marks,” said Anna Miasarah.

“The teachers also taught us the formula so that we could remember easily.

“I had so much fun. My worst subject in school is Mathematics and I think I have improved a lot since they taught me calculation methods that I did not know before,” said Lam Zoey Kay from SJK(C) Yu Hua.

Ten-year-old best friends and classmates, Vilasini Arrin Ganesamoorthy and Naina Preet Dhear from Sri Utama School said they were better prepared for the upper primary level after attending the workshop.

“This workshop was interesting and fun. I was exposed to the syllabus that I am going to face when I enter Year Six,” said Vilasini.

“Even though I am only in Year Four, I can understand and catch up with the Year Six level which was taught at the workshop,” she added.

Pupils were given notes and exercises and presented with a certificate at the end of the workshop.

They were also given breakfast, lunch and tea.
