Key Programmes

English Curriculum (Primary 1 to Primary 6)

The school adopts the Strategies for English Language Learning And Reading (STELLAR) which aims to strengthen the students’ foundation in literacy skills through a variety of learner-centred and developmentally appropriate pedagogical approaches using Big Books and authentic children’s text.

 

Learning Support Programme

LSP (Learning Support for English) is an early intervention programme aimed at providing learning support to students who do not have foundational literacy skills and knowledge for the Primary 1 English curriculum. 

 

Identified Primary 1 and Primary 2 students who are in the programme will attend English lessons conducted by our LSP teacher in small groups during curriculum hours so that greater attention will be given to each of them. 

 

Good Morning, Rivervale!

All Riverlites are given an opportunity to stand on stage and tell a story or share a topic of their interest. Through this sharing, the students will develop and improve their oral presentation skills whilst boosting their self-confidence. Promotion of reading a wide genre of books is advocated through this platform.
