Primary 1 Preparatory Class
(Level as of 2018)

(Available at our AMK, Clementi and Parkway Centre branches)

We are introducing a new programme for all Primary 1 students of 2018. Besides the struggle of thinking of a plot in composition writing, we understand that Primary 1 students also struggle with basic sentence structure, reading and understanding of comprehension passages.

As such, in this Primary 1 Preparatory class, we hope to prepare your child for both composition writing as well as the Paper 2 components. The following composition topics and paper 2 components will be covered in this class:

Component What Will Be Covered
Paper 1 (A) Helpful Act
You helped a friend who fell down during Physical Education lesson.

(B) Fearful Incident
You were lost and almost left behind on a school excursion
We will also be covering other creative-writing techniques.
They include:
  • Varied sentence structure
  • Good vocabulary
  • Building tension
Paper 2
  • Punctuation
  • Rearranging Sentences
  • Vocabulary
  • Basic Grammar Rules
  • Comprehension Techniques
