P5 ADAPT PROGRAMME
Our P5 programme recognises the importance of helping children adapt to the new challenges posed at the upper primary level. By systematically highlighting the essentials in every key component, we seek to pull the children out of the possible dip as soon as possible. Our carefully crafted curriculum ensures that pupils are equipped with skills to meet these new demands for the language paper.
Children will be guided through Situational Writing, the new component in Paper 1 along with essential planning and content skills for continuous writing. Other language skills for Paper 2 such as the identification of keywords, breaking down of passage, recognising the various questions types and checking of answers will continue to be taught and reinforced. To boost the Lil’ ones’ vocabulary, children will also have regular spelling based on vivid phrases for writing, phrasal verbs and vital vocabulary including figurative language suitable for the P5 level, sourced from past year examination questions.
To help children connect language use in the classroom to the world at the P5 level, our Mighty Communicators™ Initiative emphasises on the topics of intention/purpose and practising responsibility in their language use as they participate in various authentic tasks.

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.
