P1/P2 Speak Up & Act Out! June Holiday Programme

During the June holidays,  the P1 and P2 pupils who signed up for “Speak Up & Act Out!” had loads of fun as Ms Renee taught them how to read and speak more clearly and confidently–with expression! They were exposed to Reader’s Theatre, Speech & Drama games and activities, and dramatisation, culminating in a mini-performance that was staged at the end of the programme for their parents.

Check out the video below to watch and listen to our pupils as they proudly present two items for your viewing pleasure!

Parents’ Workshop: Secrets to Good Writing

On Saturday, 19 May LiteracyPlus ran a writing workshop for parents whose children are in P3 or P4. Parents learnt about what makes writing “good”, the traits of good writing and the core skills needed in narrative writing.  They received practical tips on how to help their child improve his or her writing.

View photos of the event below!

It was great to see so many parents turn up for this writing workshop.  Look out for our next Centre event!
