primary plus, primary english courses

Primary Plus is a series of theme-based courses in which children will work on a project, task or presentation by collaborating with classmates based around the topic of the course. Children will learn how to form opinions, discuss and compare ideas during these activities. They will develop all-round English skills as well as important life skills for the 21st-century such as leadership, digital literacy and critical thinking through a series of interactive and creative activities and stimulating materials such as games, music and tasks.

Teachers will help identify what your child does well and areas they need to develop, based on their language skills, confidence in communicating with English and their classroom performance. You will be able to see your child’s progress
