Lesson Overview

Learn and Explore - Composition Skills 2

Over the week, students will read a single piece of children’s literature to inspire debate, analysis and of course, practice of various text types.

During each 4 hour lesson, learners will analyse language, draft and edit their own pieces with the support of the teacher. 8 different texts will be produced over 4 days.

In the final lesson, the teacher will give individual feedback that will allow students to successfully write final versions. These will be added to their portfolio for later reference.

Learn and Explore - Comprehension Skills 2

Each day, students will have access to a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction texts. 

Students will practice question types seen in the PSLE. They will be taught how to zoom in to consider the author’s language usage and zoom out to review the wider themes. 

Time will be spent at the end of each lesson critically reviewing the day’s reading. Students will discuss the day’s themes, likes and dislikes, what they have learned and consider what they want to understand more about!
