Sec 2 English
From Secondary 1 to Secondary 2, students should expect to have a better command of the English language. Their vocabulary should have expanded and their critical thinking skills should also have improved because they have been exposed more to the language during Secondary 1. However, many students would still struggle to write in their own words for Non-narrative questions and some would still be unsure about editing parts of the passage in Summary to make it their own.
Besides that, changing verbs to nouns or adhering to the Grammar rules and correcting sentence structures may remain a challenge to some students who may not know the different terminology we use in English Grammar.
Therefore, Sec 2 English Bridging Course is to hone these skills in students who wants to conquer their second year in secondary school.
These are what the Secondary 2 English Bridging Course will be covering:
- Paper 1: Editing, Situational Writing and Argumentative Writing
- Paper 2: Visual Text, Narrative Comprehension and Non-narrative Comprehension
With tests and practices, by the end of the course, your child would have done an entire paper and will be more familiar with the question types. They will also get to learn how to develop their writing and certain answering techniques which will benefit them greatly.
Sec 2 Maths
In Secondary 2 Math, there is a huge emphasis on ALGEBRA where students will be required to solve both linear and quadratic equations. This would include real-life questions that adopts algebra as a model to solve the question.
As Algebra is a topic repeated in ALL the subsequent topics taught in secondary 2, students with a poor foundation will struggle to keep up with the rest of the topics taught. Hence, it is very important to start the year on the right foot.
Our Secondary 2 Maths Bridging Course is specially designed to help students build a strong foundation in Algebra which is essential to excel in Secondary Math.
With this in mind, the Secondary 2 Maths Bridging Course gives students a head start before school commences next year in 2023 by providing a brief introduction to the following topics to ease their transition into a new level.
- Congruence and Similarity
- Simultaneous Equations
- Quadratic Graphs and Equations
- Pythagoras Theorem and Trigonometry Ratios
- Pyramids, Cones and Spheres
- Statistics and Probability
Students will be guided step-by-step in class with summary notes and questions. There will also be a topical diagnostic test at the end of each day to gauge students’ mastery of the topic.
Sec 2 Science
One common challenge seen among students moving from primary to secondary science is the struggle to understand topics learned in secondary school that builds upon the concepts taught in primary school.
The Secondary 2 Science Bridging Course gives students a head start before school commences next year by providing knowledge recaps of primary science and a brief introduction to new concepts.
The following topics are selected to ease students’ transition into secondary 2:

What our students and their parents say
The teaching methods were very clear, which helped me understand topics better and led me to improve in my math and science a lot. The teachers are also very helpful and approachable. When I need help with something I do not understand, they are always there willing to help. I am very thankful to OLL for helping me improve and do well for my PSLE.
