Overall Aims of the English Language Education Curriculum
The Subject Target of English is for learners to develop an ever-improving capability to use English:
- to think and communicate;
- to acquire, develop and apply knowledge;
- to respond and give expression to experience;
and within these contexts, to develop and apply an ever-increasing understanding of how language is organized, used and learned.
- The English literacy programme, Primary Literacy Programme – Reading and Writing (PLP-R/W), is carried out in P.1 and P.2. Students’ writing skills are developed through reading activities inside and outside the classroom.
- P.3 to P.6 students have one to two lessons with ELTAs every week. The lessons are conducted in an interactive and fun way so that students can practise their speaking and communication in English with native English speakers.
- E-learning is promoted in Key Stage 2 (P.4 to P.6) to facilitate self-learning and enhance teaching and learning effectiveness.
- English activities such as festival-related games and English Day are held to increase students’ exposure to English beyond the textbook contents and help them learn English in a fun way.
Foci of Subject Development in 2021-2022
- BYOD scheme will be implemented in Primary 4. The scheme aims to enhance students’ interaction and participation in lessons. With the help of technology, diversified extended learning activities and materials can be designed. In addition, teachers can understand students’ learning progress easily and provide help to students.
- By joining QSIP organised by CUHK, the school-based reading curriculum will be revised in order to cater for learner diversity in lessons more effectively, especially during the teaching of reading. Then, the experience will be shared and extended to other grades.
