Chinese Academy offers a child-centered primary school education in a nurturing and supportive learning environment where children are encouraged to become independent learners.
Through the provision of effective bilingual learning experiences both inside and outside of the classroom, students’ intrinsic motivation for learning will be promoted and their individual potential will be developed.
TEACHING AND LEARNING
Be relevant to life
Each student is unique and has his/her own preferences in learning; differentiation is done through offering options in content and process that cater to each student’s interests and abilities.
Encourage self-expression and wide exposure
Be achieved through intrinsic motivation
Children are endowed with an intrinsic curiosity about the world around them; they will be encouraged to formulate questions, find answers and pursue further investigations on their own.
Be culturally diverse
Motivation and Achievement
Chinese Academy takes the approach of continuous assessment where in-depth formative and summative assessment on students’ growth and learning are carried out through daily school life. Information collected provides useful reference for teachers and parents in determining educational and intervention strategies.
Assessment takes many forms including anecdotal records, checklists, observations and portfolio. Timely, specific feedback coupled with constructive advice encourages students to set realistic goals for next steps.
Regular testing and monitoring will take place using standardised assessment. Results, in addition to individual goal-setting, will be analysed for planning to meet individual pupil’s needs.
