Frequently Asked Questions
How do I prepare my child for Primary 1 English?
Have them learn the spelling and meaning of 3-5 new words every day. It will be good to include a mixture of adjectives, nouns, verbs.
Do I need to buy anything for Primary 1 English?
Thematic vocabulary handbooks are good to have.
What should a Primary 1 & 2 child know?
At Pri 1 & 2, it is enough that a child knows how to answer 5W1H questions in full sentences for comprehension and the differences between is/are/was/were/has/have/had. In addition to these, the child should understand Basic Subject-Verb-Agreement. I.e. Adding ‘s’ to singular present tense verbs.
Are there still English exams for Primary 1 & 2?
Weighted assessments have been removed for both years. Primary 1 will be totally exam free. There will be a year end exam for primary 2.
How will I know if my child is doing well in Primary 1 & 2?
Check on their school work regularly. If they are scoring anything below 8/10 for spelling and regular assignments, they probably require help. Every now and then, you can let them try out past year papers. For P1, P2, they should be scoring above 85%.
