TEACHING AND LEARNING APPROACH
The school hopes to build a strong foundation in the English Language among our students while cultivating their love for the language. Through the EL curriculum, language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) as well as knowledge about the language (grammar and vocabulary) are taught using effective and engaging strategies which are developmentally appropriate. To ignite the joy of language learning, various Language Experiences, Activities and Play (LEAP) are planned across the different levels.
Through experiential learning, students are able to connect to a learning topic on a personal level and experience it for themselves. Different language experiences are incorporated into the EL curriculum to provide students with the context and content for them to think, talk and write about.

Through activity-based learning, students are given opportunities for experimentation, exploration and expression. Various language activities are incorporated into the EL curriculum to encourage students to participate actively in their learning.
Through play-based learning, students become more motivated to learn and more engaged in the learning process. Different types of language play is being incorporated into the EL curriculum which include both physical and virtual play activities to engage students in learning the language.
Literacy Support Programmes
To ensure that all students receive the literacy support they need, various literacy support programmes are being implemented to support students at the lower primary, middle primary and upper primary levels, which include both MOE support programmes and school initiated support programmes.
