Our English Curriculum

 

1.   Primary 1-6 : Reading Workshops

Reading Workshops are conducted for P.1-6 students by the Native-speaking English teacher (NET), local English teachers and classroom assistant. It promotes the use of the five teaching strategies for reading: Storytelling, Reading Aloud, Shared Reading, Guided Reading and Independent Reading. During the process of reading, students should be able to draw upon their prior knowledge, learning experiences and world knowledge so as to gain an in-depth understanding of a text and construct meaning. 

The School Team 

The Native-speaking English teacher (NET), local English teachers and classroom assistant have reading and writing lessons with students twice a week for P.1-3 students and once every two weeks for P.4-6 students. During the reading workshops, two teachers co-teach in the same class in order to allow effective student-teacher interaction and cater to learners' diversity. An advisory teacher from the Native-speaking English Section supports the school regularly to provide school-based professional development, classroom support, and resources for teachers. Teachers receive professional training regularly which leads to improvement of students' literacy levels.

     

2. Primary 1-6: Life-wide learning

Our school has always placed great emphasis on students’ English learning. Teachers put effort into moving learning beyond the classroom and into other learning contexts. Excursions or interviews are facilitated on different levels in order to allow students to use English in an authentic context as well as allow more in-depth learning on the selected topics. Such experiential learning is not only pleasant for students, but also practical and profound for them.

         

    

3. e-Learning in English

e-Learning is an important element of learning English in our school in recent years. Students use iPads to read eBooks through reading apps and use various learning apps such as phonics during English lessons. We expect our teachers and students make good use of the e-resources to enhance our teaching and learning.

           

4. English Activities

Different English Activities are carried out in our school such as Weekly English Days, Christmas, Easter Egg Hunt, World Book Day and A Taste of the World. We hope students can learn in a fun way and to know more about western culture. Students are eager to learn and they enjoy these activities very much!
