  • The following are the reading activities of P6. Reading is important as it builds up their language skills and vocabulary. Pupils will be required to cut out an article from the Little Red Dot and paste it in a jotter book, which is kept in class. The pupils will write comments on it or a question will be posed by the teacher. Through reading the Little Red Dot, the pupils will be informed of current affairs which is useful for their oral exam especially picture discussion and conversation. This year our school is one of the pilot schools for the whole-school approach programme. Some of the activities are mass borrowing where the NLB bring books to the school for the pupils to borrow. There is also the Read &amp; Reap activities. The pupils are encouraged to borrow books from the school library as from the mass borrowing.
  • The materials used in P6 this year are as follows.
  • The marks for composition are 15 marks for situational writing and 40 marks for continuous writing. All pupils must do the question for situational writing. For continuous writing, pupils must do either a picture composition or write on a given situation.
  • For situational writing, pupils have to read the given task carefully. It will give them the names of the persons they need to include and if they need to write an email, a notice or letter of complaint. Pupils are expected to look for and highlight the points required on the graphic stimulus given before they start writing. The length of this should be about one side of the writing paper about 100 to 120 words.
  • Pupils are required to plan before they start writing.
  • Pupils have to highlight contextual clues and draw arrows to the blanks. This is to ensure that they have a greater chance of getting the correct answer.
  • Pupils are required to look up meanings of the words they do not know and write the meanings next to the words. In this way, they build their vocabulary and increase their chances of getting the right answer.
  • The pupils have an exercise books where they jot down notes on the use of grammar and new vocabulary. In addition, they also paste whatever, grammar tables and vocabulary lists
  • During comprehension lessons, pupils will get to read aloud individually. The pupils get to discuss current affairs found in the Little Red Dot. They also get to voice their opinions and feelings during the Values Education lessons. We also use the oral practice exercises from the Listening Comprehension Book.
