The class for Year 5 started at 8.00 am to 9.20 am...Luckily, all the targeted pupils were present so that the class ran smoothly. Some exercises were given...focusing on Section A for Paper 2...which needs them to create 5 sentences based on the picture and information given. 5 out of 7 pupils were able to create the sentences with less guidance but the other 2 pupils need to be drilled more on the writing skill with guidance.
The next slot was for Year 1, from 9.30 am to 10.30am. In order to improve their mechanic of writing, I did a copy writing exercise for them. They need to copy down all the words correctly and neatly legible print. And, at the same time, by copying, they could say and spell the words correctly. Such as :
man - He is a man mat - This is a mat pan - This is a pan.
( This is one of the simplest way to teach how to create sentences )
I really hope that they can improve a lot after having the extra classes done.
( Practices make PERFECT )
