Primary Mathematics (P1-P6) [Chinese and English version]
Our syllabus is designed to tackle the Hong Kong mathematics curriculum. Beyond simply basic arithmetic, we also include application problems designed to foster problem-solving skills. The most difficult part of mathematics is understanding how to apply the learned concepts to a word problem. Understanding the parameters of a problem is the first step towards solving it. Our educational model involves first teaching the students the correct method to solve a problem, then allowing the students to try it themselves. Rather than allowing students to waste time struggling with difficult problems by themselves, why not allow our instructors to help from the sidelines, providing advice and strategies when needed?
We have carefully prepared a syllabus that closely follows the requirements of the school curriculum, suited towards the individual progress of each student. Whether your child is following the basic courseware of their schools, or the school board’s standardized learning objectives, our courseware will certainly be suited to the students’ needs.
Below are example problems designed for each grade level:
Primary Chinese (P1-P6)
Elevate students’ interest in Chinese education, and to strengthen their proficiency with reading and writing. The lessons are well paired with the associated exercises, in order to build the student’s foundations of language mastery.
Besides providing reading, writing, and language composition, we also include sections of listening and speaking, forming a complete, multifaceted Chinese curriculum. Through Chinese education, students can more easily grasp many different disciplines, building the basics of the language and fostering the mindset of an active and motivated learner.
Learning and familiarization with different genres of writing. From forming individual sentences to putting together full passages, students will train their ability to conceptualize thoughts, then articulating those thoughts into writing.
Reading comprehension – Passage analysis and directed reading
Language composition – Vocabulary, sentence composition, articulate writing, synonyms and antonyms, punctuation, idioms and figures of speech, etc.
Week 1: “writing, reading” – Writing, literature analysis, language composition
Week 2: “reading, speaking” – Reading comprehension, language composition
Week 3: “writing, reading” – Language composition
Week 4: “listening, speaking” – Listening exercises, reading comprehension, passage reading
Every February, May, August, and November will include a segment on picture-based learning.
Primary Chinese Reading and Writing Class (P3-P6)
A resistance or even phobia towards writing is a condition that almost every student is afflicted with. The problem stems from the lack of understanding or knowledge towards the subject matter. To solve this problem, we simply need to improve and fortify the biggest weaknesses of the students: reading and writing skills, doing so will naturally elevate their general literary abilities.
Reading and writing are closely intertwined: reading is about absorbing information, and writing is how information is passed forward. In order to raise the literacy skills of our students, we must first increase their interest in reading. Through joining together reading and writing into a full package, we hope that it would cultivate their interests in both, and this interest will allow them to reach their fullest potential.
Our syllabus aims to expose our students to different types of literature as well as writing styles, effectively allowing our students to establish their foundations. Through intertwining reading and writing lesson segments, matched with an appropriate amount of reading comprehension analyses, our students can more easily develop their own strategies for reading and literature analysis. By reinforcing that with writing exercises, which allows them to put what they have learned into practice, our students can conquer their fears of writing!
Reading Comprehension – Directed reading sessions can help students decipher and understand different types of literature. Through reading exercises, students can learn to quickly extract the key points of word passages, and strengthen their grasp on effective reading strategies.
Writing Composition – Using the reading material that has been taught, the writing techniques of the passages will be further dissected and explained, and students can try to apply them through writing exercises.
Primary English (P1-P6)
Listening and Speaking – Interactive educational model. Instructors lead each lesson solely in English. Classes are comprised of a special discussion topic, supplemented with pictures and light reading material. Aimed towards encouraging students to familiarize themselves with oral English, and includes listening comprehension as well as spoken fluency and pronunciation.
P1-P4: Learning proper pronunciation through tongue-twister exercises, there will be an evaluation in the fourth lesson involving a brief picture description section.
P5-P6: Every two weeks the students will each perform a short monologue. The instructors will decide on the topic and lead the students through the word passage. The second lesson will be a simple segment, and the fourth lesson will have a more complex and in-depth piece. These will serve as the individual evaluations for the course.
Reading and Writing – Traditional educational model. Using worksheets to teach grammar, vocabulary and reading comprehension. If the students can flexibly and comfortably use what they’ve learned, beyond just listening and speaking the language, their abilities can reach even greater heights.
Short writing exercises: Using a variety of literary formats, instructors explain and lead students through different writing exercises.
Reading comprehension: Equipped with word passages spanning many different topics, students will attempt to answer questions about the associated texts.
Grammar: Includes worksheets that train the students on “tenses” and “prepositions,” and the theme/topic of these exercises change every month.
Cumulative Summary: The fourth course of every month will include a cumulative exercise, reviewing all the content and concepts they have learned throughout the week.
Mock Test (Pre-exam preparatory)
To match the needs of our students with upcoming exams, we have added a “Pre-exam preparatory course” for the primary school level.
The main focus of preparatory courses is to help students with their end-of-term exams, providing them with ample amounts of review and practice with the course materials. Students can enrol into courses on an as-needed basis, depending on which subjects they feel needs the most reinforcement, and hopefully allowing students to approach the school exams with full confidence.
Chinese: 1 hour and 15 minutes per lesson (45 minutes mock test, 30 minutes to walk-through and review problem areas)
English: 1 hour and 15 minutes per lesson (45 minutes mock test, 30 minutes to walk-through and review problem areas)
Mathematics: 1 hour and 15 minutes per lesson (45 minutes mock test, 30 minutes to walk-through and review problem areas)
※ Before enrolling into a mathematics prep course, we must be provided with the exam parameters and testable topics, in order to help us prepare the appropriate testing materials for the students.
