1. School-based Curriculum
Our school-based curriculum is developed with authentic materials. Explicit teaching of reading skills and systematic teaching of writing skills are the foci. PLPRW (Primary Literacy Programme for Reading and Writing) is running well in P.1-3. Phonics skills are immersed thoroughly. In P.4-6, a school-based reading and writing programme has been developed to strengthen pupils’ reading and writing skills. Pupils also engage in group work, projects, presentation for enhancing their listening, speaking and integrated skills.
2. NET(Native-Speaking English Teacher)
Our Native-speaking English teachers, Ms Gemma and Mr Scott, play a crucial role in providing an authentic English environment for pupils. Ms Gemma and Mr Scott work with local English teachers in the implementation of PLP-R/W programme in P.1-3, Guided Reading programme in P.4-5 and speaking lesson in P.6. Pupils are given opportunities to learn different reading strategies as well as communicate in English. Both of them help develop pupils’ confidence in speaking and listening to English. They also organize interesting extra-curricular activities and build a language-rich environment in our school.
