English Language Programmes Primary school can be difficult for many students ages 7 to 12 years old. Lorna Whiston’s literature based Language Extension programmes cover all the skills they need to succeed.

  • use standard English to express their ideas verbally
  • listen and respond to stories, poems and other literary stimuli
  • read age-appropriate books confidently and with understanding
  • use phonic sounds and blends to assist with decoding and spelling
  • appreciate and retell stories in their own words and sequence their main events
  • write a short composition with guidance and input from the teacher
  • attempt basic factual writing
  • understand and apply basic punctuation conventions
  • use an age-appropriate vocabulary to express themselves clearly
  • attempt simple cloze passages using helping words
