Primary English Programme
Cognitus Academy’s unique Primary English Programme is built on Critical Reading and Writing (read more) and focuses on two key elements – motivation and strategy.
Motivating Students to Excel
Our programme is crafted to meet every child’s level of readiness (or what MOE calls ‘ability’) and motivate them to achieve their full potential. Through our own passion for the English language, our trained and experienced teachers ignite students’ love and interest in English.
We understand that students need to know ‘why’ before they ask the ‘what’ and ‘how’. Therefore, we teach our young charges to set learning goals, study plans and motivate them to work towards their targets.
Weekly lessons from newspaper articles also make the language come to life and encourage students to think broadly and critically about local and global issues.
Strategies to Master English
Primary 1 to 2
Our structured Lower Primary programme develops mastery and fluency in grammar, vocabulary and exam skills to build confidence in our pupils. Beginning from literacy and phonics, our programme stretches students’ ability to think about and learn English in a fun way.
- Solid foundation in grammar
- Growing bank of vocabulary
- Accuracy in reading comprehension
- Confidence in written and oral communication
Primary 3 to 6
For Upper Primary pupils, our proven strategies for scoring A*s in PSLE English exams involve not only exam tips, but also equip them with critical reading and writing skills to maximise their potential.
Critical reading skills taught at Cognitus Academy have elevated students’ ability to read with understanding and score for sections such as Comprehension MCQ and Open-ended and Comprehension Cloze Passage.
- Precision in grammar conventions
- Appreciation and application of vocabulary
- Accuracy and consistency in reading comprehension
- Flair and creativity in written and oral communication
- Termly assessment designed to stretch students’ abilities
Putting our students’ growth and results is at the core of everything we do. Sometimes, students come to us less than one year before PSLE and wish they had come to us earlier. There is really no harm in making an enquiry with us right now. If you think that we can help your child, make an appointment with us for a trial lesson today.
