Focal points
  • Enhancing the reading interest and competency of P.3 students with low PLPR performance through the provision of appropriate reading materials and frequency words to cater for the learning differences among students.
  • Initiating a cross-curricular supportive reading programme with the support of the collaborative team comprising the teacher-librarian, English teachers, NET teacher, Class Mistresses and Social Guidance Officers.
  • Employing reading strategies, vocabulary learning techniques and student guidance strategies to promote the reading interest and competency of the target students.
  • Developing a repertoire of reading programmes to meet students’ needs.
  • Improving the quality of the reading programmes through parent-school cooperation.
Programme details
  • The starting reading materials and frequency words were selected according to the achievable reading level of each target mentee obtained from their P.2 PLPR final assessment.
  • Selected reading materials were related to the English subject learning units, and the topic of General Studies curriculum.
  • A booklet was produced to trace the progress of the target students and the impact of their parents’ support on their reading.
  • The teacher-librarian met the parents of P.2 and P.3 students before the programme to introduce useful tools. Parents were encouraged to read the brief Chinese outline of the selected English reading books provided to their children before attending the meetings (2 meetings per week).
  • Each P.2/P.3 student was assigned to a big brother/ sister. At the meeting, the big brother/ sister helped the small brother / sister to go through the English part.
  • Funny reading games such as “To Be an Astronaut of LTMPS Reading Spaceship” were introduced to enhance the target students’ reading impulse and motion. Results were displayed on the “To Be an Astronaut of Our Reading Spaceship” bulletin board.
