Curriculum Tailoring

  • Teachers work as a team to select focused learning targets and objectives from the syllabus. Coordination across the levels of a key stage and across key stages is a must for the whole curriculum. Teachers teaching the same year level sit together to make decisions on how the curriculum may be adapted or extended.
  • To provide a rich language learning environment and arouse pupils' interest, teachers employ games, show-and-tell activities, theme-based projects and information technology, where pupils can learn English through purposeful and contextualized use of language in a fun way.
  • Teachers also make use of pupils’ work, such as poetry, stories, songs, personal letters and diaries for the benefit of other pupils.
  • Interesting pieces of work are encouraged to be displayed in the classroom. All these create a language-rich environment for developing language proficiency.
