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 students’ 6-year of English education.

 

  1. PLP-R/W has been a large part of the curriculum in P1 to P3 since 2013. Both LETs and NET are familiar with the programme and adaptations continue to be made. In order to cater for learners’ diversity, book leveling is conducted yearly so that students are appropriately challenged by reading books according to their individual reading abilities.

 

  1. In 2009-2010, we joined the SCOLAR Drama Scheme in P4 to promote creativity. This established school-based drama curriculum now continues in P4 every year. In order to further promote drama in education and strengthen the drama special effects, a new lighting system and sound system set up was installed under the approved grant from QEF in 2021.

 

  1. Reading across the curriculum has been implemented in P4 to P6 since 2019 under the grant scheme (PEEGS) launched by SCOLAR. This reading programme aims to help students connect their learning experiences, and to enhance their language proficiency and application of language knowledge and skills for non-subjects. In addition, through reading various nonfiction and multi-modal texts that thematically align with the textbook units, students will extend their knowledge base and learn various reading strategies.

 

  1. A variety of life-wide or cross-curricular learning activities have been developed in order to further promote experiential learning. Examples include interclass role-play and mock interview with tourists in P4, Balloon Rocket Experiment in P5 and studies and presentations on endangered animals in P6.

 

  1. Thinking tools and visuals tools are used in all levels to enhance students’ thinking skills, writing skills and self-directed learning ability.

 

  1. In order to cater for learners' diversity, the enrichment curriculum such as Bright Sparks for P4-6 students enhance the standard of the more able students through different meaningful activities like publishing our school newspaper, puppetry and drama.

 

  1. The annual “English Week”, provides students with opportunities for reading some famous classic stories and participating in language arts activities like songs, rhymes and role-plays.

 

  1. The SCHOLASTIC e-library and PLP-R/W programmes 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 both enhance their reading proficiency and to broaden their reading interests.

 

  1. Our school employs a NET to form a collaborative workforce with local teachers to further 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 various language activities.

 

  1. Tuesdays have been allotted as “English Speaking Day” in order to help cultivate students’ speaking habits.

 

  1. To continue with good practices of assessments as learning, students exercise ongoing self-assessments in their daily learning. Further,    peer evaluation among students is conducted in class.

  1. A 'light' pre-lesson task assigned for P3-P6 students in each chapter in order to facilitate learning and teaching in class. A variety of 'light' pre-lesson tasks are designed for students such as:
  • vocabulary checking
  • flipped classroom/ Edpuzzle
  • show and tell

 

  1. Note-taking continues in P3-P6 so as to help students develop meaningful learning skills and gain a better understanding of the topics they have learned.

 

  1. Making use of the topics in the textbook and other reading materials to nurture in our students the nine priorities of positive values and attitudes in our daily teaching. In addition, higher-order thinking questions will be employed in class so as to help students think a step further and a feedback technique (TAG) will be applied in order to develop students' ability in giving feedback and elaborating their ideas.
