Reading
Workshop

SCHOLASTIC e-Library
  • All students will continue to read the e-books published
    by SCHOLASTIC (named as “e-Library” below) which
    provides pupils with more than 600 hundred books with
    different levels of difficulties.
  • All students need to read a book and do a worksheet
    during long holidays.
  • In order to make the e-Library more user-friendly,
    one e-book in every two months will be assigned to
    students of each level every month. Of course,
    students are welcome to read more than one
    e-book every month.
  • P4 and P5 students are encouraged to read  e-books
    on their tablets during morning reading time.
  • In order to encourage students to read e-books regularly
    and continuously, we will work with our school librarian
    to promote a new reading award scheme.

A wide range of questions and higher-order thinking questions will
be provided in all levels.

  • Apart from the literal questions, more higher-order
    thinking questions such as inferential, evaluative and
    affective questions need to be asked in lessons and
    set in worksheets

Writing

In order to put a more balanced emphasis on both language forms and
authentic language use, modifications will be made in our assessment
system starting from this academic year:

  • For P4-P6
    • In each of the exam papers in P4-P6, an extra short writing task,
      which carries 6%, will be added. Hence, the percentage in assessing
      pupils’ language forms will be decreased accordingly.
    • In order to better prepare pupils to meet the new challenge
      of the writing tasks in the exams, short writing tasks will
      be provided in daily teaching in P4-P6.
  • For P1-P3
    • The final task in the PLP-R/W programme will contribute 10%,
      while the exam paper will make up the remaining 90% of the GE.
      Hopefully, P1-P3 pupils are more able to realize the importance
      of writing tasks.

    teaching kits for 2017-2018 during the lesson-enrichment
