There are a variety of teaching strategies used including:
|Activity orientated lessons|
|Working in Paris, in groups, alone|
|Extensive drill of exercises such as phonics, mathematical tables, selling|
|Projects to encourage research skills|
|Different forms of writing such as creative, descriptive, letters|
In the junior primary classes the phonics approach is being used to teach language and this will be built on in the higher classes. Key skills and competencies have been identified for each class level and teaching will be around ensuring students reach these levels by the end of the academic year. In an English medium school it is essential that a student becomes fluent in English in the early primary years. It is very difficult to achieve this if a student is not encouraged to use English outside of the school environment. Parents need to ensure that some English is used in the home.
