MCCA is conducted during curriculum time for all students from P3 to P6. It includes Swimsafe, Coding & Robotics, Info-Communication & Media, Digital Art, Speech & Drama and Outdoor & Lifeskill. Modular CCA provides broad learning opportunities for students to enrich their experience.

Modular CCA

 

INFO-COMMUNICATION & MEDIA

Media and Info-Communication Modular CCA (MCCA) aims to expose our students to media and infocomm technology in a fun and meaningful way. Our goal is to help them learn new infocomm skills and cultivate leadership and entrepreneurship capabilities at an early age. Our students will better appreciate technology and learn about application development, data analytics, cyber security and media production.

Beyond the skills and knowledge imparted through the exposure to these various technologies, we want to develop our students’ Digital Literacy. Digital Literacy is the ability to use, create and share digital content safely and responsibly. It encompasses information literacy and media literacy.

Information literacy is the ability to locate, identify, retrieve, process, and use digital information optimally. Media literacy enables us to comprehend, contextualise and critically evaluate information, as well as to create and communicate content effectively across digital media platforms.

In a rapidly advancing technological age, we want our students to cultivate a healthy online community and through this MCCA, learn to consider the collective well-being of fellow internet users. We want our students to have the attitude of taking personal responsibility to use the internet for the good of the community while understanding online dangers and the risks of negative online behaviours.

 
 

Coding & Robotics

At Waterway Primary School, we want to prepare our students for the Digital Century and one of the ways to achieve this is through the introduction of Coding and Programming. Exposing students to Coding and Programming promotes their computational thinking and develops their problem-solving skills.

Hence, the school has partnered Infocomm and Media Authority (IMDA) to bring programmes such as the Code For Fun (CFF) and Digital Maker for our students. These programmes anchor on the academic learning of related concepts using visual-based programming language, such as Scratch, and combining it with robotic kits, such as Lego WeDo, MoWay, and microcontrollers, such as Micro:bit, Arduino and Raspberry Pi, to create a coding experience for the student.

SPEECH & DRAMA

The Speech & Drama MCCA presents opportunities for our Primary 3 pupils to build upon the skills learnt from undergoing the Orators@Waterway curriculum while in Primary 1 and 2.  

 

During the 8-week programme, drama techniques such as role play, tableau, mime and improvisation are revisited before pupils embark on the interpretation and dramatisation of poetry. Together with their group mates, they collectively devise a creative piece of poetry theatre based on a selected poem.

The process includes visualising poetry, verbalising poetry and expressing poetry through physical movement. At the end of the programme, pupils present a class masterpiece to an audience of parents and teachers.

Through the enriching and enjoyable experience of learning to dramatise a poem and putting together a performance for an audience, our pupils develop their proficiencies in vocal expression, facial expression, gestures, spatial awareness and stage presence. They also gain collaboration skills, strengthen their self-confidence and derive a sense of personal achievement.

 

SWIMSAFER PROGRAMME

All P3 students will undergo the Swimsafer Programme as part of the PE curriculum and P3 MCCA. Students will learn about water safety, personal water survival and swimming strokes. They are grouped according to their abilities and at the end of the programme, each student has a chance to earn a Swimsafer certificate if he/she successfully passes both the practical and theory assessment.

 

DIGITAL ART

Digital Art is introduced in 2020 to all Primary 4 students as one of the MCCA modules. The objectives of this module are to achieve proficient technical and aesthetic skills using various technology tools to generate a broad range of two dimensional images. The Primary 4 students will be learning about manga. They will use the tablets to draw their manga style characters they have created for a series of posters related to contemporary issues in school. This module is also part of the Primary 4 Values In Action (VIA)  project – to educate students to be socially responsible individuals who contribute meaningfully to ensure that the school is a clean and safe environment. The posters designed by the students will be printed out and used in school.

Outdoor & Life Skill

Outdoor and Life Skills Modular CCA for Primary 5 students provides them with an enriching experience in problem solving and managing relationships. 


Students engage in authentic learning experiences using collaborative skills, creativity and reflective thinking. They also learn to apply skills such as basic first aid in hands-on role playing and knot-tying in their own creations. 

 

In building students' character and developing interpersonal skills, school values of Responsibility, Integrity, Self-discipline and Empathy are also reinforced through collaborative team play.
