Chinese Language Arts - Primary (P1-6)

  • Class Overview

    Thinktank’s Chinese language arts programme focuses on nurturing a natural affinity and appreciation for the language in our students. Birthed from a vision to inspire, infuse and enthuse students to enjoy Mandarin, we believe Chinese language learning takes root best in an intentional yet spontaneous way through the mediums of art, music and movement, speech and drama and writing. Through experiential learning, children hone their oral and written skills making the process of learning Mandarin both fun and meaningful.

     

  • Oral Communication (P1-P6)

    This programme is specially designed to equip our students with the essential language and examination skills to achieve academic excellence. We break down each examinable component at the Primary Six Leaving Examination (PSLE) and dedicate individual lessons with targeted learning outcomes to expand the scope of the students’ responses. Through this, our students become confident speakers of the Chinese language honing fundamental skills of oral presentation and delivery.

    From 2017, a stimulus-based conversation using short video clips will be introduced in the PSLE oral paper. With this in mind, our Chinese curriculum team has woven into each lesson, one-to-one practices, exposing our students to video clips featuring situations related to daily life.

    Through the use of real-life scenarios and role-playing in the classroom, our students will gain mastery of vocabulary in context, bringing the subject to life.

  • Writing (P1- P6)

    Your child will dive into narrative and expository genres; scene setting, characterisation and idea generation techniques. They will be taught the synthesis of introductions, plot development and compelling conclusions. Our systematic and progressive Chinese reading and writing curriculum will enhance overall language appreciation and mastery in the specific area of composition writing.

    By employing visual presentations, in-class games to stimulate student engagement and interactive play, Thinktank provides an enriched learning experience through which a love for the Chinese language will surely be cultivated.
