Some aspects of language skills, language arts and grammar that are required to be taught in Year Three are covered in this book.Section 1 of the guidebook provides an overview of the English Language Curriculum whileSection 2 deals with the four language skills, language arts and grammar.

The second is the content column which includes teaching points and the suggested word list. The third is the teachers notes column which includes teaching aids/materials and other instructions for teachers. Section 3 consists of complete sample lessons. In this section, teachers will be able to see and understand how the different language skills, language arts and grammar modules are presented for each week, based on one particular theme and topic, in a coherent and cohesive manner. These complete sample lessons are provided to help teachers plan effective and enjoyable lessons. Section 4 provides teachers with a glossary.The guidebook provides suitable and practical suggestions of teaching methods via the materials provided. However, teachers are in a better position to make appropriate and relevant decisions when planning their lessons. There is no single best way and teachers have to use their pedagogical content knowledge, experience, skills and creativity to plan their lessons in order to help their pupils learn better. Teachers should decide on a theme/topic and then select suitable listening and speaking, reading, writing and language arts activities to be used for teaching that topic. Activities from the MOE Teaching courseware, the textbook and other suitable resources are encouraged to be used when teachers are planning their lessons.This guide book is neither complete nor exhaustive by itself. The activities provided are merely suggestions and teachers are free to improvise and adapt accordingly to the level and suitability of their pupils. A lot of initiative, imagination and creativity are needed by teachers in planning their lessons in order to extend the experiences of their pupils. Therefore, It is hoped that teachers will find this guidebook useful and pupils will enjoy the activities and hence improve their English language proficiency. THE ENGLI SH LANGUAGE CURRI CUL UM 3THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE CURRICULUM AIMThe English Language Curriculum for Primary Schools aims to equip pupils with basic language skills to enable them to communicate effectively in a variety of contexts thats appropriate to the pupils level of development.OBJECTIVESBy the end of Year 6, pupils should be able to:communicate with peers and adults confidently and appropriately in formal and informal situationsread and comprehend arange of English texts for information and enjoymentwrite a range of texts using appropriate language, style and form through a variety of mediaappreciate and demonstrate understanding of English language literary or creative works for enjoymentuse correct and appropriaterules of grammar in speech and writingOBJECTIVES123454CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORKPrimary education is divided into two stages: Stage One refers to Year 1,2 and 3, and Stage Two, Year 4, 5 and 6. The English Language Curriculum has been designed in two strands. Strand 1 is the language focus and strand 2 is language arts. Language focus deals with language skills such as listening & speaking, reading, writing and grammar. Language arts deals with music, poetry, drama and childrens literature.As English language learning is developmental, the focus in Year 1 and 2 is basic literacy. This is done by building a strong foundation in basic literacy skills namely reading through phonics, penmanship and basic listening and speaking. Activities are contextualized and fun-filled with integration of language skills in meaningful contexts.From Year 3 and onwards, pupils will further develop the ability to speak, listen, read and write in English meaningfully, purposefully and with confidence. A grammar module is introduced from Year 3 to enable pupils develop a sound grasp of the language structures and rules of grammar.The Language Arts module has been added to the English language curriculum from Year 1 to allow pupils to engage and enjoy stories, poems, songs, rhymes and plays written in English.STRAND 1 STRAND 2LANGUAGE FOCUS LANGUAGE ARTSLEVEL 1(Years 1, 2 & 3)Listening & SpeakingReadingWritingGrammar (from Year 3)MusicPoetryDramaClass Readers LEVEL 2(Years 4, 5 & 6)Listening & SpeakingReadingWritingGrammar LiteratureEnglish at Play:Music, Poetry & DramaCURRICULUM ORGANISATIONThe curriculum is modular in design and this is reflected in the organisation of the content and learning standards. In Year 1 and 2, the English language curriculum emphasises the development of basic language skills so that pupils will have a strong foundation to build their proficiency in the language. In this initial stage, there will only be four modules; namely:51. Listening and Speaking 2. Reading 3. Writing 4. Language ArtsFrom Year 3 onwards, where pupils build on the skills they have acquired in Year 1 and 2, a fifth module, Grammar, is added to the above four modules. Therefore, the modules for this stage are:1. Listening and Speaking2. Reading 3. Writing 4. Language Arts5. GrammarThe following diagram shows the conceptual framework of the curriculum model. Fig.1 The Modular ConfigurationThe modularity of the English Language Curriculum Standards for Primary Schools is a modularity of focus. By organising the curriculum standards under five modules in Year 3, pupils will be able to focus on the development of salient language skills orsub-skills under each module through purposeful activities in meaningful contexts. This modular approach does not exclude integration of skills. However, skills integration is exploited strategically to enhance pupils development of specific and specified language skills as described in the content and learning standards in a module. The approach taken in this curriculum stresses the need for pupils to develop all the four language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Teachers are expectedto sustain a cohesive and coherent organisation between the listening and speaking, reading and writing skills. For the language arts module, teachers may plan lessons in relation to the language skills taught or they may come up with generic lessons. Teachers should incorporate the fun element in specified contexts to make their lessons meaningful.LISTENING AND SPEAKING READINGWRITING LANGUAGE ARTS GRAMMAR STAGE TWO (YEARS 4-6)STAGE ONE (YEARS 1-3)6In order to make learning more meanin
