Primary 5 English

About this class

We start our Primary 5 curriculum for English with the Comprehension Module.

The techniques and question types found in PSLE Comprehension (both Visual and Open-ended) work as a launchpad to explore how we read, understand and respond to texts, as well as demonstrate how these vital skills are also applicable to other parts of the English exam paper.

We use explicit teaching to target problem areas and help students tackle these problems meaningfully, effectively, and productively.

Add small-group tutorials for more targeted learning & revision

If you feel your child needs more help after our hour-long lecture, you can sign them up for our weekly tutorials too. These are conducted in small groups, so your child has personalised guidance from their teachers, all of whom are ex-MOE teachers.

Our weekly live-streamed lessons engage students in a content-rich and interactive learning environment. The meticulously crafted curriculum is designed to give your child ample practice and revision in each topic, question type, and examinable component.

Because we’re committed to helping students, we’re also keeping fees for these weekly tutorials affordable (lectures are included in all tutorial packages).

Class schedule (Available for Standard and Premium Package)

There are 2 types of Primary 5 classes:

  1. Lectures
  2. Tutorials

Lectures have larger class sizes, while tutorials have smaller class sizes capped at 6 students per class.

Each lecture is an hour of intensive content teaching on key topics and concepts, while tutorials allow our TCHERs to dive deeper into hands-on practices and give students more individualised feedback.

Please note that tutorials are not standalone. You will need to attend one lecture to be able to join the tutorial.

TCHER Online Academy (Available for Basic, Standard and Premium)

Have a tight schedule that can’t accommodate weekly lessons? Our TCHER ONline Academy provides you with the flexibility of recorded lessons you can play back anytime, anywhere.
