EERS (English Extensive Reading Scheme)
The reading scheme is done every week. RaC readers are taught and related activities are carried out. NET, ELTA and local teachers co-teach the lessons.
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.
It aims at training the communication skills of pupils and building up their confidence in speaking. They learn to cooperate with group members and enjoy the fun of role plays and performance art.
Story-telling club aims at building up pupils' confidence in using English in daily life naturally and upgrade pupils' language skills. Pupils listen to stories and do reading activities. They also play games ,show and tell and do presentations.
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.
Visiting the library is one of the ways to cultivate the reading culture. Teachers purposefully promote reading specific books for students to read on the topics related to the textbook modules.
Different activities are designed for each level. P.1-2 have singing competitions. P3 has buying and selling activity while P.4-5 present readers’ theatre in the hall and p.6 has quiz. These activities motivate pupils to learn English in fun.
Our school joined the SCOLAR activity which was co-organised by the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Students learnt about endangered animals. They created their own e-books by using an app. It was fun and they enjoyed the learning very much.
