    The first column is the LEARNING OUTCOMES column.These are skills and attitudes to be acquired by pupils andare drawn from the syllabus.

    The second column is the SPECIFICATIONS column. Here,the larger Learning Outcomes are broken down intomanageable skills and sub-skills for teaching and learning.These specifications represent important aspects of thelearning outcomes to be acquired in Year 4 SJK.

    To help teachers further, these specifications have beencategorized into 3 levels ranging from the more basic to the

    Level 1 outlines the basic skills to be achieved by alllearners. On completing their tasks successfully, learnersthen progress to Level 2, and then to Level 3.

    The third column is entitled EXAMPLES / ACTIVITIES /NOTES. These notes are directed at teachers and includeexplanations, teaching points and examples of activities to

    help pupils achieve the skill specifications.

    Language Skills

    A close link with the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writingis maintained. Vocabulary and sentence patterns introduced in theoral component also need to be taught and used by pupils inreading and writing. Grammar items taught and learnt must beapplied to both oral work and writing exercises.

    Learning Content

    In teaching English to pupils, specific contexts are used to makelessons meaningful. Some themes have been identified to helpteachers decide upon topics that are suitable for their class.

    When planning lessons, topics for teaching are initially based on theimmediate learning environment of the child. Later on, these areexpanded to town, country and more distant foreign locations.

    The Spoken Language

    In teaching children the sounds of English, the aim is for them to beunderstood by others. As such, teachers should ensure thatlearners produce the sounds of English well and pronounce wordsclearly with the correct stress and intonation so as to enable thelistener to understand what is being said.

    To this end, specific sounds such as blends and diphthongs havebeen identified for teaching. These sounds can be found in thesection entitled Sound System. The objective of this exercise is toaim for clear speech and intelligibility.

    Teaching-Learning ActivitiesIn order to help pupils learn the language, pupils must be givenevery opportunity to take part in activities that require them to usethe language skills taught. Some activities have been suggested inthis document. However, teachers are encouraged to set morecreative and challenging tasks and activities based on the needsand interests of pupils.


    Evaluation is part and parcel of the teaching-learning process.Continuous formative evaluation is important to keep track oflearners progress. Awareness of learners capabilities will enableteachers to plan activities for further development.

    Other considerations

    As far as possible, teachers should use the Malaysian setting whenplanning lessons. Teachers should also use materials thatemphasize the principles of good citizenship, moral values, and theMalaysian way of life.

    The Curriculum Specifications makes only a few suggestions as tothe number of activities required for the attainment of languageskills. Teachers need to use their initiative, imagination and

    creativity to extend the experiences of their pupils.


    The English Language programme for Year 4 SJK focuses on thefour skills, namely Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. TheYear 4 SJK programme focuses on providing the basis for literacyin the English language. Also important is vocabulary control andsimple functional uses of language in everyday life.


    Listening is an important skill as what learners hear often becomesone of the main sources of the target language to be learnt.

    In order to develop pupils listening skill, teachers should makepupils listen to songs, rhymes, and stories. To show theirunderstanding of what they have heard, pupils can be asked to

    answer questions that require them to recall ideas, give details andeven talk about the ideas heard.

    Oral Work

    Pupils should be given lots of opportunities to talk in class so thatthey gain confidence to speak in the language. Opportunities shouldbe given to pupils to role-play, participate in drama activities thatmake them use the language appropriate to the role or situation. In

    this respect, pair and group work activities allow for all pupils toengage in speaking activities at the same time. Pupils should alsobe encouraged to talk in English to other pupils and teachers in theschool.

    Curriculum Specifications for EnglishYear 4 SJK



    Schools are encouraged to use good reading schemes. At thisstage, pupils should be reading on their own from a range ofstories. Teachers should teach pupils to read with understandingand enjoyment, building on what they (the pupils) already know.

    Pupils should also be taught to use various cues for wordidentification, and to use their understanding of grammaticalstructure and the meaning of the text as a whole to make sense ofthe content.


    At this stage, pupils would have mastered the mechanics of writing

    and should be writing simple paragraphs of several sentenceseach. To make writing enjoyable, teachers should ensure thatpupils write in response to a variety of stimuli including stories,classroom activities and personal experiences. At this stage,teachers should encourage pupils to write independently but whenthis is not possible, teachers need to set guided writing exercisesrelaxing the amount of control gradually as pupils show greaterconfidence.

    This document only lists a number of essential activities for theattainment of the English language. Teachers need to use theirinitiative, imagination and creativity to extend the experiences oftheir learners, to reinforce what has been learnt and to createchallenging language tasks.
