Primary 6: Acing PSLE
It’s time to build on the knowledge learnt thus far in Primary School, polish it further and prove your mettle in the Primary School Leaving Examinations (PSLE)! Our curriculum planners keep a close watch on the examination trends and guidelines in order to get our students exam ready in this crucial year:
- Composition Writing: Our students practise Composition Writing topics that are relevant from examination perspective. We help students to practise:
1. Creative ways to ‘begin’ the composition.
2. Develop distinctive characters.
3. Include descriptive details and vocabulary (show, not tell).
4. Work on rising action and building climax.
5. Develop impressive ‘conclusion’ while closely following the theme.
- Situational Writing: Often, Situational Writing task gets overlooked due to the huge emphasis laid on the Composition Writing task. We ensure that our students value and practice the Situational Writing task with:
1. Correct format.
2. Formal/informal choice of vocabulary.
3. Proper paragraph structure while including all relevant details.
- Practice makes one perfect! We ensure that our students get consistent exam practice through all our study modules: Grammar & Vocabulary questions, Cloze questions, Synthesis & Transformation, and Reading & Visual Comprehension. Our monthly study modules ensure that each topic is covered in detail. The students are also taught the necessary methods to understand and tackle each question, especially challenging questions like Cloze Passages, Synthesis & Transformation, Comprehension Open-Ended etcetera.
- Each study module that is taught in the class is followed by an assessment using which we are able to keep a close watch on the child’s progress and give constructive feedback.
Listening Comprehension & Oral: Our unique study material is so crafted that Listening Comprehension and Oral exercises are part of every study module. We firmly believe that like everything else in the English Language paper, Oral and Listening questions need to be practised regularly to build confidence, develop fluency and respond quickly to visual and oral stimuli. When done under the teacher’s guidance, a child learns to develop correct and detailed responses.
