Getting Your Child Ready for the New Composition Format in the Primary 5 English Syllabus
Be Ready For the Change,
Before it Sneaks Up On You.
"If you fail to plan, you plan to fail."
This is the reason why most students experience a huge dip in performance in Primary 5 English.
This is especially glaring in Composition Writing, because there is a distinct change in the Writing Format, that requires students to include more details, clearer descriptions and more vivid plot developments.
Many parents panic after lackluster results in the school exams, but this stress can be easily avoided if your child is prepared for what is to come.
This is the objective behind our P5 Headstart Program
=> To Familiarize your child with the skills and strategies to write elevated Compositions required at P5, during this December Holiday.
From Average to Awesome.
Pick Up Content Strategies & Language Techniques to Bring Their Writing to the Next Level.
From Analyzing the question, to planning the story, we provide your child with detailed instructions on what to do when writing any composition.
This not only roots out confusion, but also alleviates their confidence when doing composition writing.
We want your child to discover the joy of writing, that comes naturally when they have structured processes and strategies to follow.
In this program, we equip your child with the knowledge of what is essential in a "model composition", and replicable skills on how to bring their writing to life, through simple writing techniques.

A Systematic Approach to Brush Up On Composition Writing Techniques
From Story Planning to Language Techniques, we equip your child with the knowledge and skills to write engaging composition pieces.
#1 Question Analysis to Identify Marking Requirements
Many students fail to perform this step which can lead to answers that are out of point or fall short of marking requirements.
We teach your child to analyze and plan their composition efficiently so they approach every composition question with speed and accuracy.
#2 Check that Critical Elements are Present in Each Segment
We provide your child with clear guidelines on what to include in each segment, so they meet marking requirements head on.
From 5 different ways to write introductions, to creating meaningful conflicts, we teach replicable strategies to stretch your child's writing potential.
#3 Model Compositions For Revision
We understand that it takes time for your child to familiarize with the new Composition syllabus.
Which is why we have prepared 12 different model compositions across 3 main themes, so your child can revisit the techniques and strategies taught in class.
All Model Compositions come with a glossary of useful words and explanations so they are useful for revision.

Familiarize with the P5 English Syllabus to Breeze Through the Year On Solid Footing
Three Distinct Process to Write Solid Compositions
Question Analysis + Story Planning: When picking up any composition question, we teach your child to analyze what the question is asking for. From identifying the theme to extracting information from the pictures, answering the guiding questions and planning the story, your child will learn to approach composition with rigor and gusto.
Content Strategies: An engaging story is propped up by various elements throughout the composition. Starting with Introduction, we take your child through the various segments and highlight the critical bits of every segment. This ensures a baseline score for content that translates into consistent performance!
Language Techniques: To leave a lasting impression, your child needs to use the most suitable words and phrases, based on the context of the question. Through techniques like "show-not-tell", "literary devices", etc, we equip your child with the tools to write vivid descriptions that hook the reader from start to the end.
