Unleash creativity, learn to write in various genres and be an author!
To teach children how to write and how to express their ideas and emotions is such a joy for both teachers and students. With basic skills in writing, students will learn to express themselves in a rich variety of creative and practical ways. Through various genres and tones we aim to provide different styles of writing to inspire and stimulate our students.
Our Love to Write curriculum is designed to encourage students to enjoy writing in English as they explore all the skills needed to be a confident writer. It aims to enhance students’ English writing skills while nurturing their creativity. It is divided into 10 levels – from K3 to Form 4. At lower levels, Love to Write students will transfer their creative thoughts onto pages in a coherent manner while also participating in a range of stimulating activities.
As they progress through primary school, students will learn advanced writing skills and enrich their vocabulary and grammar through practical writing topics. For secondary levels, students will be able to pick up more sophisticated writing techniques which they can apply to their secondary school assignments. By the end of the course, students are expected to become effective and confident writers, who not only excel at school but also have developed a passion for writing.
