Readers & Writers Programmes

THINK N’INK

(7 – 12 Years / Primary 1 – 6)

Becoming confident readers and conscious writers 

Carefully structured to help children succeed in school and meet the standards expected of primary students by the Singapore Ministry of Education, Think N’ Ink focuses on key literacy skills such as comprehension and composition through a text-type approach, with an increasing emphasis on written responses to stories. Students are also gradually guided through creative, composition and functional writing to develop enthusiasm for writing and to build their confidence as writers. 

In our Think N’ Ink programmestudents in Primary 1  6 learn to: 

  • Read and appreciate different text types with fluency and understanding. 
  • Decode texts for main idea and supporting details. 
  • Confidently answer comprehension questions. 
  • Understand and use the writing process to become more effective writers. 
  • Write a variety of texts with a good range of thematic vocabulary. 
  • Master complex punctuation and grammar. 
  • Integrate non-fiction information to develop deeper understanding of a topic. 
  • Develop critical thinking skills:  Analysing characters, inferring meaning from contextual clues, evaluating, interpreting and analysing reading content. 
  • Use strategies to succeed in PSLE examinations 

“My child is attending the Readers & Writers Primary 1 class. He enjoys going to the class and looks forward to it weekly. The class is lively and interactive, where the children exchange and share their ideas freely. The children are exposed to various forms of literature and each story teaches the children different forms of values. The teacher is encouraging and caring towards her students. The teacher’s delivery and cohesive learning environment make the lesson appealing.”
