Primary School

The oral language is a key tool in helping learners in this stage to learn. The teacher will scaffold learning through using classroom talk to create interest in a task, to break complex tasks into smaller steps, to focus learners on the aim of a task, to model language, to demonstrate tasks, and to show learners who are unable to do a task alternative way of approaching it. The curriculum will support language learning by providing language input at text level, through stories, songs, chants, role-plays, poems and descriptions, so that learners are exposed to whole language.
