English - Primary (P1-6)

  • Class Overview

    Our popular English classes cover the components of writing, comprehension, vocabulary, grammar and oral literacy.

    In writing, skills are taught progressively resulting in work that grows increasingly sophisticated in content and nuanced in expression. Aided by apt and precise vocabulary, this scaffolded approach gives children the strategies with which to write with confidence and clarity.
