Pri 5 to 6 Synthesis and Transformation June 2023

Cloze, Synthesis and Transformation, Compre Open-Ended Workshops

Primary 5 to 6

In this 2-day workshop series, Students will be learning about synthesis and transformation question patterns and how to tackle them. Synthesis and Transformation have been one of the hardest components to score in the PSLE Paper 2 section. If your child faced plenty of challenges tackling Synthesis and Transformation in Primary 5, you will understand the importance of mastering this section now that your child is taking PSLE this year.

Also, Comprehension Cloze carries 15 marks. Inherently, this section can impact your child’s grades – that delicate borderline between an AL1 and AL2 can either be crossed over with success or it can spiral south. Topics are unpredictable while there are so many collocations to revise for and retained in their memory. During the exams, students have to be composed enough to recall the right prepositions, collocations and decipher the text carefully so as to apply the most suitable jargons. Join us in this second phase of PSLE workshops that starts as early as Primary 5.

Finally, the most critical section that most parents worry about is the Comprehension Open-Ended. This section has a weightage of 20 marks. There is a number of questions in this section and there is a way to train your child to ace certain question types. Our teachers are very experienced in explaining the techniques in an easy-to-understand manner for your child.

Join us for this vital second phase of the English Language PAPER 2 Programme.

“My favourite story is Father Christmas. We get to act out a skit before we started analysing the characters. During that lesson, I learnt to write something meaningful. Best of all, I could get a lollipop as a reward. This is my third holiday course at Writers Studio.”

“I like to write but I needed to put on a bigger thinking cap. I learnt to make some bends in my story plot. I learnt new ways to write about the characters and what they do in their stories. I could pick up new vocabulary because at every paragraph, we are taught new phrases.”

“I enjoy the lessons taught during the Creative Writing Camp. There were so many interesting activities. I remember that we had to wear a face mask with a big nose and act out a character. It makes me think about what the character will say and do in my story. I learn to create new characters in my stories.”
