Why Study Cambridge Primary English?

The Cambridge Primary English course encourages a life-long enthusiasm for reading, writing and spoken communication. Learners develop English skills for different purposes and audiences. This course is for learners who have English as a first language, and can be used in any cultural context. (Cambridge Assessment International Education, n.d.)

What will students learn?

Learners develop skills and understanding in four areas: reading, writing, speaking and listening. They will learn how to communicate effectively and respond to a range of information, media and texts to:

  • become confident communicators, able to apply all four skills effectively in everyday situations
  • see themselves as readers, engaging with a range of texts for information and for pleasure, including texts from different times and cultures
  • see themselves as writers, using the written word clearly and creatively for a range of different audiences and purposes.

How is the programme taught?

This curriculum supports an integrated approach to teaching the four skills. We deliver Cambridge Primary English using a broad range of activities that promote experience, reflection and improvement.

We use a range of fiction genres, poetry, playscripts and non-fiction texts to provide authentic contexts for skills development.
