Workshop on Reading across the Curriculum (RaC) in the primary English curriculum
Since each individual is different and with different learning style, we employ various teaching strategies such as discussion, group work, games, shared reading and writing, videos, learning with I-pad and apps to cater for learner diversity. We hope our students can learn best and unfold their potential through learning in our school.
Pupils do book presentation in class. It motivates pupils to read and build up their confidence in speaking. Pupils also upload their book sharing video clips in apps so that they can have more opportunities to practice.
P. 6 Interview training
Teachers guide P.5 and 6 pupils to do better in interviews for secondary school allocation. Teaching videos are shown and pupils do the self – introduction and presentation of some topics as required by teachers. Pupils have mock interviews with the NET and ELTA so that they gain the experience to talk to new teachers.
