Characteristics

  1. 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.

  2. PLP-R/W has been implemented in P1 to P3 since 2013. Both LETs
    and NET are familiar with the programme and adaptations have
    been made. In order to cater for learners’ diversity, book leveling
    is conducted yearly so that students can read books according to
    their reading abilities. 

  3. We joined the SCOLAR Drama Scheme in primary four to promote
    creativity in 2009-2010. The established school-based drama
    curriculum is continued in P4 every year.

  4. In order to cater for learners' diversity, the enrichment curriculum
    such as Bright Sparks for P4, P5 and P6 students enhance the
    standard of the more able students through different meaningful
    activities like publishing our school newspaper, puppetry and drama.

  5. “English Week”, which is a yearly programme, provides
    students with opportunities for reading some famous classic
    stories and doing some language arts activities like songs,
    rhymes and role-plays.

  6. 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.

  7. Our school has employed a NET to form a collaborative workforce
    with local teachers and to develop our school-based English
    language curriculum. Co-planning meetings are held every week for
    teachers to discuss the teaching of reading, writing, speaking
    and language activities.

  8. Tuesdays have been allotted as “English Speaking Day” in order
    to cultivate students’ speaking habit.

      preparation are co-designed among teachers
  6. To further promote experiential learning through providing students
    with a variety of life-wide or cross-curricular learning experiences
    • P.4 - A large-scale inter-class role play and mock interview in P.4
      will be held to make use of the key vocabulary and sentence
      pattern learnt in the textbook. After the interview, students will
      find out which places are the least popular. They need to think
      up some ideas and facilities to promote tourism in these particular
      places and then write a letter to Hong Kong Tourism Board.

      evaluation of the experiment ‘Water rocket’ they learned in

      be collaborated with our teacher-librarian.P6 students will explore
      more endangered animals by reading other electronic reading
