Catering to both local and international school students, this course aims to improve their competence in reading, writing and all aspects of literacy-related skills.

Teaching Objectives

    • Encourage Reading

To cultivate the ability to use language competently and with creative flair, students need to read as much as possible. Students are introduced to both contemporary and classical all-time favourites such as Alice in Wonderland, Treasure Island, Oliver Twist, Harry Potter, Nancy Drew’s Mysteries and many of Roald Dahl’s ingenious gems.

    • Hone Writing Skills

Students will be exposed to different genres such as Recounts, Narratives, Persuasive Writing, Descriptive Essays, Reports, Letters and Poems.  Students are encouraged to write smoothly and creatively using their imagination and ingenuity, and become adept in both creative and formal writing.

    • Build Vocabulary and Grammar

There will be a continued focus on helping students enrich their vocabulary as well as building sound grammatical skills.
