1. Why English and Creative Writing is a separate class by itself ?
During the 1.5 hours of our English lesson, we focus on Paper 2 Booklet A and Booklet B components like Grammar, Vocabulary, Vocabulary Cloze, Visual Text, Synthesis and Transformation, Grammar Cloze, Comprehension Cloze and Comprehension Open-ended. Paper 2 itself carries 162 marks out of 200 marks in a PSLE English paper. As there are too many components to focus, the students will not have enough time to do any composition in class.
All children have a creative mind but if it is not properly articulated, the composition might turn out to be a disaster. During the 1.5 hours of our interactive Creative Writing lesson, our focus is to encourage and brings out the creativity of each student by guiding and stimulating their ideas. Students will be taught how to structure their composition using linking and descriptive words and phrases to enhance reader’s experience and to avoid repetitive words. Our Creative Writing class has always been our most sought after class since our inception.
