STELLAR Activities

STELLAR stands for STrategies for English Language Learning And Reading. Through the use of authentic children’s literature, we aim to strengthen reading and language skills as well as instill a love of reading in the children. Over the course of the year, our pupils will be engaged in various language experiences which include outdoor learning and hands-on activities. Such multi-sensory experiences enable children to relate their classroom learning to real-life contexts, thereby strengthening their language learning.

Three cornerstones undergird the STELLAR framework. These are Shared Book Approach (for Reading), Modified Language Experience Approach (for Writing) and Learning Centres (for reinforcement or extension of Language Use through differentiated learning).
