Pre-Primary Enrichment - English
An early start to the programme has its advantages. This will help the child to read and encourage the child to cultivate good reading habits. The course is designed to enable the child to develop the appropriate level of English language skills so that he/she can cope with English at entry into Primary school education. English will be introduced through working with Montessori and other concrete materials, from a concrete to abstract manner. A comprehensive reading scheme is used, which includes phonics, phonetics and phonograms. The child is also introduced to language usage, grammar, comprehension and sentence construction. Once the child has reached a level of competency, creative writing will be introduced to enable the child to develop a head start and confidence in expressing his thoughts, and further enhance his language skills.
