We have a variety of activities to promote reading. Teachers and pupils share the stories that have read at the Mother Tongue Early Bird programme every Wednesday.
Holistic Assessment consists of a range of the formative tasks (e.g show
and tell, interactive writing and interactive conversation) to grow our pupils to
be a self-directed learners and confident speakers which are the key
competencies for 21st century. Holistic Assessment also provide the useful
information to teachers and parents on the progress of the pupil. Furthermore,
the qualitative feedback will
help pupils to learn about their strengths, weaknesses and steps they could
take to support his/her learning.
To help pupils develop an appreciation of both the Singapore and
Chinese culture, TPS embarked on Bi-Culture Programme in 2010 for P3 and P4
High Progress pupils.
This innovative programme exposes our P3 and P4 High Progress
pupils to Chinese Literature, Culture, traditions and history. Under this
programme, pupils have given the opportunities to get in touch with Singapore and
China’s History, drama training and to go on interesting learning journey.
Different learning packages such as oral and reading comprehension are designed by teachers to help students be equipped with essential language skills.
