Overview

Learning is understood as the acquisition

of knowledge about ourselves and our world. In Writers Studio, we have a team of zealous and professional teachers to bring your children

to greater heights in the English language.

A holistic approach to learning and revision is

adopted across our lesson.

We believe that good habits of mind and positive learning attitude should be inculcated in students.  Students will learn proper decorum and conduct in

a formalized setting. Afterall, students learn best in

a conducive setting, supported by a positive learning culture.

The students will be able to understand new words and learn how to expand their vocabulary.

 

Primary One ( 7 yrs old)

The early years in primary school are formative

for a child’s development of language. We believe that preparation should start early

so that the child would have a better headstart

in Primary 1. 

 

We use a meticulous set of approaches to hone language skills. The children acquire fundamental skills in writing. Basic writing elements are taught

so that students gain awareness of the structure

and scope of a short story. At this age, the child

needs to gain confidence in writing. A coherent sentence structure, the ability to spell it right and

a sufficient set of vocabulary will all add value.

Learning how to expand the plot of a strong convincingly and creatively is important. Due to

their lack of life experience, a primary one student

is knowledge limited. Hence, we focus on  than how

to expand their plot logically and interestingly.

 

Thematic vocabulary and fundamental techniques

of suspense conflicts and cliffhangers will be broken down in a simplified manner to enable the students

to deliver interesting stories.

 

On admission to Primary One, children are not used to the very structured and heavy Primary

One syllabus. There is indeed a great leap from

K1 and K2 to Primary One in terms of teaching methodology and modes of assessment. As a result, many children find it difficult even to

make a headstart at Primary One.

 

Intensive international research by leading educationists have concluded and confirmed

that the initial years of a child’s education have

the most important bearings on his academic performance in the later years. The Primary One Preparatory Course is designed with this research result in mind so as to provide a strong headstart towards success for future learning.

The whole concept of the course is a comprehensive and thoroughly enjoyable Pre-Primary One education. This includes a strong emphasis of writing, reading literacy, answering inferential comprehension questions. Fundamental grammar skills and thematic vocabulary will be taught in detail.

 

 

Kindergarten Two (6 yrs old)

Brillant Starters Programme

Cornerstone Programme

This is a fun and child centred programme for teaching literacy through synthetic phonics. The sounds are taught in a specific order (not alphabetically). This enables children to begin building words as early as possible.

 

The five main skills taught include:

 

- Learning the letter sounds

Children are taught the 42 main letter sounds.

This includes alphabet sounds as well as digraphs such as sh, th, ai and ue.

- Learning letter formation

Using different multi-sensory methods, children

learn how to form and write the letters.

- Blending

Children are taught how to blend the sounds

together to read and write new words.

- Identifying the sounds in words (Segmenting)

Listening for the sounds in words gives children

the best start for improving spelling.

-Tricky words

Tricky words have irregular spellings and children learn these separately.
