English Curriculum
 
Since 2016-2017, the school has implemented a new English curriculum namely “Space Town” literacy programme which was designed and developed by the Advisory Teaching Team NET Section, CDI, EDB.
 
In Space Town, the teacher’s role is not solely to teach literacy but to guide students to empower themselves with the life-long skills necessary to become self-directed learners. The aim of Space Town is to develop students’ four language skills (reading, writing, speaking and listening) as well as other learning skills through this sustainable Primary Literacy Programme.
 
A language-rich environment is critical and crucial to facilitate students in learning English effectively and confidently. In Space Town, students have four lessons every week to learn with native English-speaking teacher which accounts for half of the weekly lessons. Students are given more opportunities to apply English in reading, writing and other language activities. Moreover, students are provided with books with different themes and topics regularly. Students’ reading interest and ability can be enhanced. Through Reading Town Apps, students can listen to stories, do online reading and recording and play vocabulary games. Students can learn English in an interesting way at school or at home independently.
 
In response to the recent educational development of Self-Directed Learning and E-learning, the school has adopted a new English textbook namely “READY” which was designed and published by Oxford University Press. Through meaningful pre-learning activities and online interactive learning platform, students’ learning motivation and confidence are greatly enhanced. They are able to develop the knowledge and skills in a more interesting as well as effective way. Students are also given the chance to expose to different text types and genres.
