In line with the English Language Education curriculum framework,
our school has constructed a balanced and coherent school-based
English language curriculum which enhances students’ four
language skills. Reading workshops, school-based writing curriculum
(Little Writers), e-teaching
and learning resources and self-directed
learning are the core components throughout the 6-year English
teaching and learning.
PLP-R/W has been implemented in P1 to P3 since 2013. Both LETs
NET are familiar with the programme and adaptations have
In order to cater for learners’ diversity, book leveling
is conducted yearly
so that students can read books according to
their reading abilities.
We joined the SCOLAR Drama Scheme in primary four to promote
creativity in 2009-2010. The established school-based drama
is continued in P4 every year.
A variety of life-wide or cross-curricular learning activities are developed in order to further promote experiential learning, such as interclass role-play and mock interview with tourists in P.4, Water Rocket Experiment in P.5 and study and presentation of endangered animals in P.6…etc.
Thinking tools and visuals tools are used in all levels to enhance students’ thinking skills, writing skills and self-directed learning ability.
In order to cater for learners' diversity, the enrichment curriculum
as Bright Sparks for P4, P5 and P6 students enhance the
the more able students through different meaningful
publishing our school newspaper, puppetry and drama.
“English Week”, which is a yearly programme, provides
with opportunities for reading some famous classic
doing some language arts activities like songs,
rhymes and role-plays.
SCHOLASTIC e-library programme and PLP-R/W programme are carried
out so as to facilitate the development of a reading culture and to
expose students to a wide range of text types in order to enhance
their reading proficiency.
Our school has employed a NET to form a collaborative workforce
with local teachers and to develop our school-based English
curriculum. Co-planning meetings are held every week for
teachers to discuss the teaching of reading, writing, speaking
and language activities.
Tuesdays have been allotted as “English Speaking Day” in order
to cultivate students’ speaking habit.
