LaC inside classroom - LaC Periods in S.1
There were around 26 lessons scheduled in the school timetable for S1 students in each academic year from 2010/11 - 2016/17 to enhance their English abilities especially writing and speaking and learn systematically different knowledge structures such as compare and contrast, problem and solution, etc. that are important for them to study different content subjects effectively in English. In 2011/12, four teachers were invited by the Education Bureau to present our school’s LaC periods and LaC days at its seminar entitled “Maximizing students’ exposure to English through varied cross-curricular approaches” held at the EDB Kowloon Tong Education Services Centre on 20 April 2012.
LaC outside classroom - LaC Days
A variety of theme-based English activities on the LaC Days such as the Science Day and the Music Day were organised to consolidate what students learnt in lessons of different content subjects and enrich the school’s English language environment.
Organising a cross-curricular summer bridging programme for incoming P.6 students
We organise a summer bridging programme for incoming P.6 students to provide more opportunities for students on the use of both general and academic English (GE + AE). LaC and RaC elements are infused in the programme and students will learn more reading skills and vocabulary items (especially the vocabulary items taught in content subjects). Starting from July 2012, we have designed and run a cross-curricular bridging programme for the incoming P.6 students. It has been a great success and welcomed by students and teachers.
English Reading across the Curriculum (RaC)
Apart from completing book reports in Science, V.A., Music, History, Chemistry, Geography, Home Economics and English, S.1 - S.3 students will learn and revise various reading strategies in the lessons and complete different reading assignments.
