UPCOMING HOLIDAY WORKSHOPS

Date: Mon - Wed 12, 13, 14 March 2018
Time: 10.00am - 12.00pm
Level: P1 - P4
Price: $120
 

The Literacy through Drama programme aims to introduce to children a host of language and literacy skills through advanced speech and drama strategies. In our contextualised drama activities, students define, articulate, express and verbalise thoughts.  Children are encouraged to use literate language that will eventually transfer into their learning of written language.

Objectives:

  • to build students' vocabulary bank thematically, to learn and use appropriate words to express themselves effectively.
  • to encourage reading and deepen students' understanding of narrative passages.
  • to build students' confidence level in using figurative language in composition writing in school and in conversations.
  • to build and enhance students' self-esteem and confidence level through stage experience.

EDUCATIONAL DRAMA

Date: Mon - Wed 12, 13, 14 March 2018
Time: 1pm - 3pm

Price: $120
 

The Educational Drama workshop aims to help our students to develop awareness, encourage positive attitudes, and make decisions to help them acquire life skills that link with the core of 21st Centuries Competencies framework where knowledge and skills are underpinned by values. 

This would be an opportunity for the students to develop social and communication skills; collaborating and expressing ideas and opinions with a team. In addition, by using 'real' stories as the stimulus in class would allow the children to develop care and concern and be able to handle challenging situations well.

Objectives:

  • To stimulate spontaneity, creativity and their imaginative skills.

  • To develop speech skills such as voice projection, articulation pronunciation.

DYSLEXIA STRENGTHS DECATHLON BY ROD NICOLSON

As we continue to embrace dyslexia, we aim to produce and conduct workshops that focus on the strengths of our students with dyslexia.  The chart above provides an overview of the skill areas that workshops are designed and how the skills that each workshop focuses on can enhance the strength/s of our students with learning differences.  Each of these triads helps promote unconventional thinking among our students thereby helping them overcome their learning differences, by developing their own coping mechanism in their learning and their self confidence.
