Black, slimy and super fun! The Cambridge @ Sengkang K1 children explored magnetic forces using slime! They were filled with wonder and surprise as they watched the magnetic slime come “alive”. Using magnets, they manipulated the slime in many ways like pulling tentacles from it, dragging it from side to side, and even accidentally dropping the magnet into the slime and see it being “engulfed” by the slime in seconds!

The Cambridge @ Sengkang commemorated Earth week to raise awareness about ecological issues like climate change, drought, and water scarcity. The week was filled with significant and exciting activities to instill in children how they can help create a better, greener and cleaner planet. Even though Earth Day is celebrated once a year, the children were encouraged to conserve energy, recycle, and take personal responsibility for our planet throughout the year.
The Cambridge @ Sengkang Toddlers explore colours though “Bubble Art”. They mixed paint with water, squirted a little washing-up liquid, stirred it and blew into it using a straw to create lots of bubbles. They then gently placed a piece of paper over the bubbles to create a colorful print. Our toddlers were fully engrossed in the activity 😊
The Cambridge @ Sengkang toddlers are exploring their 5 senses this term. Their teacher created a sensory walk using boxes and different materials to let the children explore their sense of touch. The activity aroused the children’s curiosity and many stopped to touch the materials and requested to go again! Their teacher also used the opportunity to teach them about textures and sensory attributes like cold, warm, squishy and hard.
The children from Cambridge @ Sengkang went on an excursion to Happy Castle at Seletar Mall. They engaged in activities that enhanced their sensory abilities such as playing with cassia seeds, and observed the cause and effect of manipulating the sensory materials.
The Cambridge @ Sengkang K2 children were marvelling on how animals from the Arctic and Antarctic spend their lives surviving in a subfreezing air temperature and frigid water. A “Blubber Experiment” was set up to help the children understand that the mammals’ thick layer of body fats helped them to endure the cold climate. Through the experiment, the children experienced what it was like to take a dip in cold water without turning into a human popsicle!
