English Activities & Programmes
Show and Tell
In 2009, The Primary Education’s Review and Implementation (PERI) committee recommended that our children grow up to be confident persons, adept at working in teams and able to communicate their thoughts and ideas effectively. Hence, in response to the recommendation, Fuchun Primary introduced "Show and Tell".
“Show and Tell” is a technique to teach young children the skills of public speaking. Through this performance task, pupils develop their oracy skills by talking about something that is close to their hearts. “Show and Tell” provides an opportunity for pupils to express their opinions in a non-threatening way and gives teachers insight into their pupils’ level of competency in public speaking. Through the use of a rubric, feedback is given to pupils and their parents.

Learning journeys are conducted each year to extend and enrich our pupils’ educational experience. For our Primary 1 and 2 pupils, the learning journeys are opportunities to make real and concrete what has been learnt in school. The visit to the Singapore Science Centre is made more meaningful and relevant for our pupils as they take on a multi-disciplinary approach. For the Primary 1 and 2 pupils, Art, Music, English, Mathematics and Science are incorporated in their journey to the Singapore Science Centre. By viewing exhibits which are on display in the Science Centre, the pupils will be able to learn through various modes (kinaesthetic and tactile). These visits are indeed an integral part of the formal curriculum, enhancing the total learning experience of the pupils.
P1 Learning Journey to watch “Elephants and Piggies!”
February 2016, our P1 students went for a Learning Journey to watch a Musical –
Elephants and Piggie’s , “We are in a Play!” This learning journey was a
collaboration between the English Language and Aesthetics Department. In this
learning journey, students learnt the proper concert etiquette in an authentic
theatre setting. They also identified and noticed how the
characters used facial expressions, body language, voice and tonal inflections
to demonstrate their emotions in the musical. They even learnt how music can
affect the mood of the musical!
Our school takes part in the RHB-Straits Times Spelling Competition every year. On 26 March 2016, 20 outstanding students who had emerged from our inter-class spelling contest represented Fuchun Primary School in the biggest Big Spell Round of the National Spelling Championship jointly hosted by RHB and The Straits Times. Our students thoroughly enjoyed themselves as they competed with over 1,800 students from various schools in Singapore. They also displayed great resilience as they sat through an hour-long written test without relying on spell checks. It was truly a memorable and invaluable experience!

NLB KidsRead Programme
The NLB KidsRead Programme is a collaborative effort between the National Library Board (NLB) and our school. This fun and exciting programme allows pupils to be exposed to different children’s books each week. Every Monday, a parent volunteer or a teacher will first read aloud some selected books with the pupils. After which, the pupils will engage in some activities related to the book. These activities include art and craft and speech and drama.
Every week, one pupil will be chosen to be the group leader and don the group leader hat.
