Lil’ but Mighty School Workshops!

What a year it has been! Did you know that apart from our English programmes for our Lil’ but Mighty ones, we have been bringing our curriculum to more children in their schools this year? Understanding that every school has different needs and area of focus for their children, our school workshop team works closely with the school’s teachers to come up with a curriculum that truly fits what they are looking for. Here are the schools which we have had the privilege of working with this year!

Lil’ but Mighty School Workshops!


1. Greenridge Primary School and Tao Nan School
The Write Recipe: Feast on Writing Workshop

 

To write well, the young ones require specific techniques to be shared and an understanding of the various key ingredients in a story. The Write Recipe: Feast on Writing Workshop aims to do exactly that. Teachers love how the workshop focuses on writing skills which are transferable to the writing of compositions and pupils love the writing assignments and activities which are carefully planned to provide an engaging and enriching experience.

Returning to where we first started, we served The Write Recipe to a new batch of P3s and P4s at Greenridge Primary School and the results are just as delicious. From learning to use their five senses to writing about how various mascots around us came alive, the children were always eager to learn.

In addition, we love the enthusiastic bunch at Tao Nan School! The Primary 4 students at Tao Nan School enjoyed themselves tremendously and you know the lessons are great when the instructors had just as much joy as the students in the classroom. With students who are constantly surprising you with original and creative ideas, you can be ensured that there will never be a dull moment!

2. Fairfield Methodist School (Primary)
The Write Recipe: Maga-Zing & Text Types Workshop (I)

 

As much as we see the importance of helping our children to be prepared for assessment in school, we are advocates of authentic learning. It is essential that children recognise how learning English is to prepare them for life, where they are surrounded by various text types serving different functions every day.

How wonderful is it then, that students can be given the opportunity to produce a school magazine for other students by showcasing the various text types available? Imagine our excitement when the teachers of Fairfield Methodist School (Primary) shared this idea with us. Needless to say, we are instantly onboard!

With the aim of exposing students to the authentic use of different text types, this workshop was conducted to help students grow their knowledge of different text types and their features. With clear instructions and hands-on activities, the P3 and P4 team of young writers had a fruitful time of learning the skills for them to be critical writers and audience of the texts surrounding them.

It has been a good run this year and we look forward to going to more schools to share our Lil’ but Mighty flavoured workshops! Till we next meet. (:
