Our school has joined the Grant Scheme on Promoting Effective English Language Learning in Primary Schools (PEEGS) launched by the Education Bureau this school year. The scheme has allowed our school to develop school-based English enhancement measures to further promote effective English language learning for our Primary Four and Five students. Our focus is on “promoting reading across the curriculum”. We have developed four reading packages, which align with the core curriculum, for each target level. The thematic reading packages not only expose students to authentic multimodal texts and current issues, but also provide students with opportunities to dig deeper into a topic. The topics include: Electronic Products Then and Now, Amazing World, Loving Hong Kong, Healthy Eating, Travel Fun, Fabulous People, Brilliant Inventions and Fighting Scams. Under each topic, the students can develop their general knowledge and know more about the world. They can also expand their vocabulary power and strengthen their language skills. Last but not least, students can benefit from using various e-tools during the learning process. For example, our Primary Four students have written about their local trips using Story Creator whereas Primary Five students have shared their smart inventions on Padlet.
A student has invented the Doggie Toilet Warning for his pet
