Excellence in Writing
Learning Point's Excellence in Writing programme inculcates in young learners a thirst for the written word through greater exposure to a wide range of vocabulary and expressions. Students will also have opportunities to practise creating their story ideas in a timed environment, to simulate exam conditions.
With a strong emphasis on creative writing techniques and literacy skills, students will be taught how to enhance their narrative writing through a variety of strategies. Students will gradually be introduced to newer and more challenging techniques as they progress from Primary 3 to Primary 6. These include the use of dialogue, similes and metaphors, characterization, among others.
As students advance to upper primary, they will also be introduced to other text types, such as expository and personal recount passages. They will also be trained in situational writing where they learn how to write different text types, including emails, letters, and reports.
By the time students sit for the PSLE, they will be all-rounded, confident writers with linguistic mastery who can skilfully apply the various writing techniques they have learned.
