Sustained Silent Reading (SSR)

Sustained Silent Reading (SSR) is a regularly scheduled, fixed period of time in which everyone in the room including the teacher reads a book of his/her choice quietly and uninterrupted. This strategy provides pupils with authentic opportunities to enjoy reading while practising their silent reading skills.

Book Talk is part of the formative assessment for Primary 3. The pupils are given the opportunity to talk about a book that is of great interest to him or her. This is to foster a love of reading and encouraging them to be confident speakers.

Global Awareness Programme

Our English Department has subscribed to the Little Red Dot (LRD) for our Primary 4, Primary 5 and Primary 6 pupils.  The teachers are required to teach pupils values through the newspaper articles.  The teachers lead the class in discussion about the values elicited from the article.   They also predict the outcomes of such behaviours and actions or make links between the two.  After the discussion, pupils write a reflection on their takeaways and moral stand on the issue discussed.  Each term, we will focus on 2 core values.

The core values are as follows:-

School Term 1

School Term 2

School Term 3

School Term 4

Graciousness

Public -Spiritedness

Harmony

Nil

Responsibility

Respect
