三至六年班課外閱讀報告

English Information

We take pride in stating that one of our students’ key strengths lies in their ability to communicate using a high standard of English.   It has also been our constant endeavor to instill in students a life-long love for literature through widespread reading for pleasure.

In the past few years, we have provided students with the following opportunities to further explore the language beyond classrooms–

Reading Award Programme

Students record the English books they read in the Reading Record Card.

The students who read the most number of books receive Reading Awards at the end of each term.

 

Hong Kong Schools Speech Festival

The Hong Kong Schools Speech Festival is one of the prime events in which our primary girls get

the opportunity to challenge themselves in their spoken eloquence. Students give it their best when

it comes to rendering the chosen pieces of text and uphold the long tradition of performing

meritoriously at the event.

 

Big Sister Reading Scheme / Reading Buddies

Students of senior grades help students of junior grades enhance their reading interest by sharing

books and story-telling. The senior girls read to the younger ones and ask them questions to develop

their ability to comprehend and infer varied meanings from texts.

In the past academic year, we also had secondary students from St. Clare’s Girls’ School who came as

reading buddies to our school and read books to our P.4 and P.5 girls.

 

English Ambassador Programme

To further enhance students’ confidence in speaking, English Ambassadors from the senior

grades are stationed around the school campus on Mondays and Wednesdays. Students across

grades share interesting anecdotes in English with the Ambassadors and earn stamps in their

English passports. These stamps are redeemed for gifts at the end of each year.

 

International Festival

This is a celebratory day as students gear up for activities from countries around the world. Our

senior girls design, create and supervise their own booth games which are a manifestation of

world-wide etiquettes and culture. In the past academic year, students also got a one-of-a-kind

opportunity to experience the mystifying facets of African culture through African Drumming.

 

RTHK Radio Programme

The department also participates in the Sunday Smile Radio Programme organized by RTHK which

provides opportunities for students from P.3 – P.5 to use different forms of language arts. The students’

performances are subsequently broadcast on Channel 3 of RTHK.

 

Lunch Book Sharing

We make use of every opportunity in the curriculum to teach our students to become life-long readers

and cherish reading for pleasure. Teachers and students take turns on a regular basis to share their

favourite reads with all students during lunch breaks.

Mathematics Information

Our school’s mathematics curriculum aims to develop pupils’ understanding of basic mathematical knowledge, creativity, and problem-solving skills so as to enhance their lifelong learning abilities. More specifically, different learning experiences are tailored into our school-based curriculum to assist pupils to master the following five basic dimensions of knowledge: Number, Shape and space, Measures, Data handling, and Algebra.

To arouse pupils’ interest, learning and assessment activities are of a wide variety. Pupils do not just learn the mathematical concepts by listening to their teachers. They are given opportunities to actively apply their knowledge and creativity in solving problems during project work (e.g. making models, doing surveys), group discussions and presentations. Their confidence in Mathematics is also enhanced through participation in a number of inter-class and inter-school competitions.

Let’s take a look at what activities the students had participated this year (2016-17)

We welcome your views, interesting news or challenges of Mathematics/General Studies. You could express your ideas to your Math or GS teachers, or send email to STEM@scps.edu.hk

It provides students with opportunities to integrate knowledge, skills, values and attitudes. It promotes creativity through hands-on and minds-on learning experiences and problem-solving process which helps them to deal in everyday life. We also hope to widen their learning beyond the school settings through activities like outdoor visits, project learning, and newspaper clippings to stimulate students’ awareness about environment, science and history.
We use English as a medium of instruction for teaching G.S. This is to provide a better English foundation for our students and to pave the way for higher standards in English-taught subjects when they reach secondary level.
GS assessment comprises various continuous assessments, projects, newspaper clippings, tests and examinations, all of which are conducted in English. Our syllabus includes materials taught in the textbooks and also current affairs.

Biblical Knowledge

St. Clare’s Primary School is founded by The Congregation of the Missionary Sisters of Our Lady of the Angels. The founders wished our students would know God and have a fruitful life.

Subject Objectives:

–      To transmit the messages in the Gospel.

–      To cultivate values such as respect for life, filial piety, politeness, simplicity, peace, justice, honesty, thoughtfulness, sacrifice for others and tolerance.

–      To teach students help and love each other as we are brothers and sisters in God’s family.

–      To guide students to experience God’s love in daily life and build a relationship with God (to teach them the ways of prayer)

–      To let students experience the connection of our faith to everyday life through liturgy, prayer and religious activities.

–      To help students understand the perfection in life that is to follow Jesus. They learn to live out truth as well as love God and one another, so that they would become good daughters of God.

IT Information

The school’s IT curriculum is designed according to the EDB document, Modular Computer Awareness Programme. The curriculum fulfills the three learning objectives – information technology knowledge acquisition, skills and attitude which are listed on the consultation document for the Strategy on IT in Education.

Our IT teaching aids are designed according to the level of the students. Every IT lesson includes a theme and some activities. Using different teaching methods, the teacher gives the students some missions to motivate them. Students can enjoy the lesson, be inspired and have more room to think creatively. After they are well trained and have improved their IT technique, they can participate in group activities such as study reports and IT competition, which allows them to build up a positive attitude and to share their opinion. Letting IT become a part of our students’ daily life helps them to learn and take in knowledge more proactively and willingly.

The school includes topics to tell the students how to use IT functions correctly. For the senior students, copyright and other broad-based topics are included in the curriculum in order to raise their awareness when using IT. Assessments incorporate three domains – cognitive, affective and psychomotor.

Assessment Method

Through a continuous assessment of student’s performances.
There will be no written examinations.

PuTongHua Information

本科的學習分為聆聽、說話、閱讀及譯寫四個範疇。課程內容的編排由淺入深,使學生能循序漸進地學習。

本科學習總目標

(一)培養聆聽、說話、朗讀等語言能力,以及自學能力。

視覺藝術科 – 課程簡介

為了配合美術教育和藝術的發展,課程發展議會藝術教育委員會於二零零一年通過將小學課程的美勞科和中學課程的美術與設計科統稱為視覺藝術科。

本科的課程宗旨是希望學生透過視覺藝術科的學習來擴展其以視覺為主的感官、美感和藝術經驗,繼而使學生能夠進行表達個人感情和思想的視覺藝術表現;此外亦希望透過評賞和創作,發展學生視覺認知、共通能力和後設認知,藉着對不同文化藝術的接觸,來拓展學生多元化的視野,從而陶冶學生的情意、修養、品德,以至對國家民族及世界的投入感。

而在視覺藝術科課程設計上,老師必須透過不同的學習活動來讓學生有效掌握四個學習重點,包括:培養創意及創造力、發展技能與過程、培養評賞藝術的能力及認識藝術的情境,繼而將評賞與創作互相配合,最終達到視覺藝術科的課程宗旨。

特色

視覺藝術科不是單單讓學生將主題的內容繪畫在畫紙上,而是希望透過不同的學習活動來引發學生主動學習,培養不同的共通能力,幫助學生統整不同學習領域的知識和經驗,在學習和生活情境中實踐出來。

P.E. Information

Physical Education (PE) is “to educate students through physical activities.” It aims to develop students’ physical competence and knowledge of movement and safety, and their ability to use these to perform in a wide range of activities associated with the development of an active and healthy lifestyle. It also develops students’ confidence and generic skills, especially those of collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking, as well as the attribute of aesthetic appreciation. These, together with the nurturing of positive value and attitudes in PE, are foundation for students’ life-long and life-wide learning.
