English Language

Programmes incorporated in curriculum (for Students)

1)  STrategies for English Language Learning And Reading (STELLAR)

STELLAR aims to strengthen children’s language and reading skills as well as promote a positive attitude towards English learning. The programme uses research-based teaching strategies and developmentally appropriate materials to engage children in the learning of English.


 

   

2)   Write Well + ( WW + ) Programme

The School-based WW + complements STELLAR teaching of writing through

  • explicit teaching of developmentally appropriate narrative and non-narrative writing skills (P1 to P6)
  • infusion of ICT such as digital puppetry or mind-mapping/concept mapping
  • integrating descriptive words, phrases and sentences used for writing into Spelling lists
  • targeted evaluation of student's mastery of specified writing skills through Writing Revision Test and the use of rubrics

      
 
 

3)   Literature-In-Curriculum ( P3 to P5 )

Literature-in-Curriculum strives to stretch our proficient readers' language ability through discussion of literary devices, themes and writing techniques used in quality and authentic children literature.

 
 
      

4)   Reading Lab Programme (P1 to P4)

The Reading Lab programme leverages on affordances in ICT to develop comprehension, vocabulary, word analysis and study skills through online literacy profiling and progress monitoring.  

It aims to interest students in reading and enlarge their specific knowledge using a wide array of quality factual and fictional selections that are tagged to their actual reading level based on the results from their online literacy profiling.   

In the process, students would develop the habit of independent work and sense of personal responsibility as they take charge of their own learning and become self-directed learners.
