Post-PSLE Bridging to Sec 1

English Enrichment

Module 1 ~ Visual Text Comprehension

We’ll compare and contrast the differences between Primary School Level (PSL) and Secondary School Level (SSL) visual texts and examine the demands of open-ended questions. Students will be taught to craft open-ended responses to visual text comprehension questions, which will be something new to them.

Module 2 ~ Situational Writing

In Primary School Situational Writing, the written response does not need to adhere to a prescribed format. In Secondary School Situational Writing however, the format of the response is a criterion for assessment. In this module, students will learn to write in styles that will serve them well even in adulthood.

Module 3 ~ Editing

In Secondary School English Editing, prompts for where errors are located in a passage are no longer given. To do well in this component, students will really need to make sure they build a strong foundation in grammar so that they’re able to spot those elusive errors.

Module 4 ~ Composition

Personal recount compositions require students to describe an account of a significant event in their lives and to layer it with a thoughtful reflection. In addition to descriptive skills, students need to be able to dissect an event to extract relevant themes and lessons.

Module 5 ~ Summary Writing

From reading and understanding a factual text to identifying and rewriting the salient points in more concise yet precise form, students will be taken through the entire process of what it takes to tackle a summary writing exercise, and more importantly, how to score full marks for it.

Module 6 ~ Comprehension

Students will be introduced to the narrative and non-narrative text types. We’ll focus on questions that’ll require students to provide responses on language use. They’ll need to learn to read between the lines, identify vocabulary in context and assess use of language for impact and more.

Module 7 ~ Research Project

Project work is an important part of secondary school curriculum. In this module, students will be given a list of projects to choose from. They will be taught how to conduct research, separate accurate information from misinformation (fake news!), and finally deliver their findings in written in oral and written form.
