English Language

Confident and Effective English Learners

With a systematic and spiral approach of teaching English in Compassvale Primary School, we hope to nurture our students' love for the language and develop them into Thinkers, Leaders and Champions through mastery of the language!

We aim to build a strong foundation of language learning in four main areas- listening, speaking, reading and writing. This is done by providing a rich, authentic and meaningful language experience for all our children. 

The English Language Department strives to stretch our proficient readers' language ability through discussion of literary devices and writing techniques used in quality and authentic children literature. This not only promotes exploratory talk, but also helps our middle and upper primary students to develop a broader worldview, and a critical appreciation of human and social conditions as presented by the themes in the chosen children literature.
