Strategies for English Language Learning and Reading (STELLAR)
In 2008, the P1 pupils participated in an MOE pilot project (phase 3) on STELLAR. This project focuses on engaging pupils’ interest through the use of interesting books and activities that get children to use, read and write English every day. The STELLAR Programme is now extended to P5.
At the lower primary, pupils are taught to produce the English sounds more accurately and fluently. A range of in-class activities is incorporated into the EL curriculum for pupils to speak and interact with their peers. These activities include Show and Tell, Poetry Recitation, Group Discussions and Oral Presentations. Teachers will provide guidance and real-time feedback for pupils engaged in these oral activities.
