Primary 5 - English

We start our Primary 5 curriculum with the Comprehension Module. We use the techniques and question types found in PSLE Comprehension (both Visual and Open-ended) as a launchpad to explore how we read, understand and respond to texts, as well as demonstrate how these vital skills are also applicable to other parts of the English exam paper.

We use explicit teaching to target problem areas and help students tackle these problems meaningfully, effectively, and productively.

Add small-group tutorials for more targeted learning & revision

If you feel your child needs more help after our hour-long lecture, you can sign them up for our weekly tutorials too. These are conducted in small groups, so your child has personalised guidance from their teachers, all of whom are ex-MOE teachers.

Our weekly live-streamed lessons engage students in a content-rich and interactive learning environment. The meticulously crafted curriculum is designed to give your child ample practice and revision in each topic, question type, and examinable component. 

Because we’re committed to helping students, we’re also keeping fees for these weekly tutorials affordable at only $40/lesson (which will include the lecture).
