Primary students are being taught to hone their writing skills. During Publishing, where they showcase their learning, Grade 1 constructed stories based on the tagline ‘How to…..’ and wrote on topics like ‘How to Play Cricket’, How to Brush your Teeth and How to Decorate a Christmas Tree’.
Meanwhile, Grade 2 and 3 were encouraged to write about small moments, with a focus on details, including showing a character’s small actions, dialogues, and internal thinking. Some very interesting stories emerged with titles like ‘The Last Point’, ‘My flight to Chicago’, and ‘The Ticklish Hour.’
Grades 4 & 5 were taught to conduct research using primary sources and write narratives that are reflective and theme-based. Some of the topics they wrote on included, ‘Animation’, ‘How firecrackers are polluting the Environment’, and ‘Drums’; all displaying immense talent and grasp of concepts taught.
