P4 BUILD PROGRAMME
Our P4 programme strives to build on the children’s knowledge of the various components and very importantly, begin preparing them for the upper primary jump in the following year (P5). This includes providing exposure to higher level questions in different components to the children but carefully crafted along with guidance from the teacher to aid them in understanding.
Essential skills and strategies that will extend till the upper primary level such as the identification of keywords, breaking down of passage, recognising the various questions types and checking of answers will be taught for writing, comprehension, grammar and other key components. To boost the Lil’ ones’ vocabulary, children will also have regular spelling based on vivid phrases for writing, word patterns and vital vocabulary including figurative language suitable for the P4 level that are sourced from past year examination questions.
To help children connect language use in the classroom to the world at the P4 level, our Mighty Communicators™ Initiative emphasises on learning about the purpose and language features of various authentic texts in the world through the use of texts like newspaper articles, movie reviews and signboards.

Our Experience and Nurturing Teachers
It takes a village to raise and grow a child. At Lil' but Mighty, every child is capable of growth and the best part is that as teachers, we have the opportunity to do so with the children. Our teachers at Lil' but Mighty believe that every child is unique and building positive relationships with the children and parents opens up opportunities for learning.
Equipped with rich and relevant teaching experience, our nurturing yet dynamic teachers are always coming up with new and engaging strategies in teaching English. All teachers at Lil' but MIghty gather weekly to discuss and design materials that best tailor to children's learning needs. Alignment across the curriculum and different classes is ensured through the weekly reflection sessions.
Learning is a never-ending process and this applies to our teachers too. To provide innovative ways of learning and to be kept abreast of the latest pedagogy in teaching, all teachers are required to attend English workshops and share the learning thereafter. We hope that as we hunger to learn, we will inspire our children to do so too.
