Writing Enrichment™

2 Hours; Primary 1 - 6

TWC employs a matchless methodology in teaching writing that has earned great respect from educators and customers. We have experienced phenomenal success in helping students achieve excellent results in both writing and English. In both Sydney and Singapore, students who have gone through our programme have not only produced stellar writing pieces, but are lauded for their creativity and mastery of the English language.

 

TWC’s students develop transferable thinking and life skills that are essential in higher learning. The focus of the programme is to equip students with language skills, strategies and techniques that will power higher-order thinking and enable them to achieve their life goals. Our programme in Singapore adheres to the PSLE format for Continuous Writing. The well-respected curriculum we have is designed to help students achieve a world-class standard in English and writing.

COURSE COMPONENTS

Our four-week learning cycle consists of a series of lessons and assessments that are vital in helping us evaluate your child’s learning progress and actively support their learning outcomes. Our materials are specially designed by our team of curriculum writers with engaging content to ignite students’ curiosity and nurture the joy of learning.

Week 1: Formative Lesson

 

​​The main objective of the Formative Lesson is to focus on learning one or more new writing skills, strategies or techniques. Our worksheets are designed to develop language proficiency, writing and higher-order thinking skills.

 

Students will be introduced to new vocabulary, be exposed to a variety of comprehension passages and questions, and learn writing concepts through practical exercises.​

How your child will benefit:

 

  • Broaden general knowledge through real-world issues discussed in materials.

  • Increase repertoire of useful vocabulary.

  • Methodically master strategies and techniques for effective writing and communication from purposefully written mentor texts and guided practical exercises.

  • Learn to interact deeply with text and analyse writing techniques within a passage.

  • Develop strong, explicit thinking and social skills through vibrant discussion of ideas.

Week 3: Summative Assessment

 

We continue to explore previously introduced writing skills, strategies and techniques in different ways. Another timed piece of writing will be completed in class by the students, this time by themselves.

 

This allows teachers to assess if they are able to independently apply the knowledge acquired.

How your child will benefit:

 

  • Increase confidence in planning and writing independently.

  • Cultivate good exam habits through simulation of exam conditions.

  • Develop quick thinking and organisational skills.

  • Strengthen time management ability.

  • Receive graded reports based on TWC-enhanced PSLE English marking rubrics.

Week 2: Formative Assessment

 

The lesson this week recaps and explores in greater depth the writing skills, strategies and techniques taught in Week 1.


A teacher-guided and timed writing task will be completed in class, to assess if students are able to apply what was taught. If they have difficulty applying the concepts taught, the teacher will diagnose the ways to help them to facilitate real improvement.

How your child will benefit:

 

  • Reinforce the concepts taught and allow learning to take place thoroughly.

  • Learn and practise planning strategies.

  • Develop deeper and more thorough thinking through instructional scaffolding and guidance by teacher.

  • Receive diagnosis of learning issues from marked written piece and meticulous TWC-style comments, individually tailored to help the students be even better in their writing.

  • Experience long-term growth by cultivating excellent habits of the mind through reflecting on learning issues and strategies provided.

Week 4: Consolidation Lesson

 

This week’s lesson consolidates and extends the knowledge learnt in the learning cycle. New exercises are included in this week’s worksheets, where students get to explore Model Compositions from the perspective of a writer, and learn how language is used in context.


Draft 2 of the written piece from Week 2 will also be completed in class, so that students can ask their teacher to clarify the TWC-style comments suggested to improve their work.

How your child will benefit:

 

  • Learn from excellent examples of compositions, some adapted from actual students’ works.

  • Speak confidently and clearly.

  • Develop critical reading and thinking skills in analysing a Model Composition.

  • Hone grammar / language skills through practical exercises based on Model Composition.
