Course roadmap

Journey through our Primary English course

P1 & P2 English

Our Primary 1 and 2 English Programme helps students to cultivate an appreciation of the English language, and develop a robust foundation across the key areas of reading, listening, speaking, and writing. Students will gain a repertoire of new vocabulary and learn basic grammar rules.

We will also lay the initial groundwork for students to become effective orators and writers over time. They will build confidence in public speaking through classroom discussions and our Show-and-Tell component, and pick up fundamental writing skills, which include techniques on how to brainstorm and develop storylines in a creative and imaginative manner. 

P3 & P4 English

At the Middle Primary level, students will sharpen their foundational skills acquired from Lower Primary. Students will expand their library of vocabulary with our Mind Stretching Vocabulary list, and build upon their proficiency in grammar to effectively manipulate and transform sentences. They will be introduced to a broad range of narrative and information-based text types, to train their ability to analyse implied meaning, and respond critically.

Students will continue to hone their skills in communicating effectively, both in the spoken and written form. With the help of proprietary frameworks such as R.E.A.P and P.E.E.R.S, they will acquire good practices in reading fluently, and communicating their ideas in a structured and coherent manner. They will also be trained to effectively brainstorm, structure, and enliven their essays with writing techniques reinforced through our regular writing tasks.

P5 & P6 English

Our Primary 5 and 6 Programme will gear students up for the PSLE, and equip them with exam-smart techniques and skills to ace the examinations. Students will master core grammar rules, and continue to strengthen their knowledge of vocabulary, which will enable them to tackle multiple sections of the English paper more effectively.  

Students will become well-acquainted with trending PSLE composition themes and common mistakes made by students in the examinations. They will reinforce their techniques in analysing composition questions, and brainstorming storylines, and acquire more tools to ace their writing tasks, through the use of impressive opening hooks and good vocabulary phrases demonstrated through model essays. Through continuous practice with our R.E.A.P and P.E.E.R.S framework, students will also master the skill of communicating effectively, and differentiate themselves from their peers in the oral examinations.

Our testimonials

What our students & parents say about us

Mrs Shum is a very dedicated teacher. She has given me detailed feedback to improve my writing and her lessons are very engaging. I really appreciate the personalised feedback which helps me identify areas I should work on more. She goes the extra mile to share interesting facts every lesson which has helped expand my general knowledge in so many ways. With Mrs Shum's tips and MS Worksheets explaining how to master various components, I'm able to answer questions with greater confidence. Lastly, Mrs Shum cares deeply about our emotional well-being, and she always reminds us that trying our best is more important than the results.

I would like to thank the Chinese Language teacher very much for her effort, concern and encouragement for my child! He is very happy to be in her class and has enjoyed the Chinese Language lessons very much. He has tried his very best in the PSLE examination last year 2022 and his Chinese has improved. The constant encouragement from his Chinese Language teacher makes a difference and goes a long way!  Thank you Mr Kuek and all the teachers very much who has taught him and shared during the online bootcamp and the webinars! We really appreciate the effort, time, love and understanding put into preparation of the examination booklets and materials and staying behind after the online lessons to answer the students' questions! Wishing all the teachers and staff a very Happy blessed year 2023 ahead!

Dear Mrs Shum, thank you so much for all the guidance and support you’ve given me since i joined ms. Since i joined at a pretty late stage, i didn’t expect myself to acquire so much valuable knowledge that allowed me to learn English from a whole new perspective, as well as to perceive life in many different aspects. Thank you for always being so generous in sharing with us your personal experiences that engaged us during class, and making English such a fun subject for us explore the wonders of it! Thank you for taking the extra mile to further support me in English Literature as well, it really has been very useful!! It has truly been an eye-opening experience learning from you and I will remember these lessons as part of the unforgettable memories of learning in this subject❤️🥰

Mrs Shum is a caring teacher who is concerned about her students and their well-being. She has helped me improve in my English and has always been very caring towards me. She stresses on our mental health and has encouraged us a lot. Her teaching is amazing and i love how she shares interesting facts related to the topic we were studying and she exposed us to the basics of general paper too. To add, Mrs Shum gives specific feedback on our work which allowed us to know what we can improve on. The MS comprehension worksheets were also of great help as they allow me to know how to answer certain questions in a straightforward manner. Mrs Shum marks quite strictly which also further prepared me well for the O-levels where the marking is usually more lenient. As a result, I learnt how to do better and could gauge where i stand. Mrs Shum also made me realise that i was better in personal recount essays which allowed me to do well in the O-levels. Overall, MS worksheets were of great help and useful with specific tips and strategies. Thank you so much.

Dear Mr Alvin, Just want to text you to say "Thank you for all you have done for all the kids! Elvyn scored AL6 for his 2022 PSLE!“ A special mention to Teacher Meili, Teacher Audrey, Teacher Ryan and 丁老师。Not only were they never annoyed by his endless questions and constant requests for ways to improve himself, they guided him and encouraged him to do more and better. We are so blessed to have met all of you! I had introduced friends to send their kids to MS and will surely help to promote MS in the future too!
