(Strategies for English Language Learning and Reading) – Lower Primary

To develop children who love reading and have a strong foundation in English Language. Children learn reading and writing using rich and interesting books, with discussions led by the teacher. The classroom environment is focused on children’s interaction rather than teacher talk. Each Stellar Unit includes the development of Social Skills in which students will learn to interact among peers in non-threatening situations.

Each STELLAR Unit includes the development of four language skills:
- Listening
- Speaking
- Reading
- Writing

Daily English lessons include the Shared Book Approach where teachers will introduce Big Books to the students and they will learn songs related to the Big Books. There will then be explicit teaching of language items, structures and skills using the learning sheets and the Enrichment Booklets.
