② The A.C.A.D.E.M.I.C Guide to Literary Compositions for Lower Primary

Good writing has never been more relevant than it is today. Far from being an exercise in merely memorising phrases and storylines, the beauty of composition writing is in how it trains our youngest minds to become skilled content creators. At Academia, we believe that writing beautifully is an essential skill for Generation Z, especially for those who aspire to join the ranks of the global financial, managerial and entrepreneurial elite.

Over three days, we will write three different stories using our in-house mnemonic that represents a distillation of advanced literary techniques into an easy-to-remember format: the A.C.A.D.E.M.I.C. Guide to Adding Literary Details to Your Composition.

This programme is designed for Primary 3 & 4 students, but is also suitable for advanced Primary 1 & 2 students.

③ The Art of PSLE Composition Writing Workshop

The art of writing well encompasses a wide range of skills, from vocabulary mastery to an architectural approach to plot and structure. Learn these essential skills in our Upper Primary Composition Writing Workshop. Students will understand the necessary skills that will help them construct sophisticated and exam-appropriate compositions.

④ An Academic Pre-Foundation Programme

A strong foundation in English is a lifelong asset. Our proposition: it’s easier to lay the right foundation for writing well from a young age than to disentangle the effects of poor preparation. Join us to start building the assets that will help your child stay ahead in an increasingly polarised world.

We have taken the fundamental Primary One syllabus, added intellectual sophistication and exposure to the mix, and designed our Pre-Foundation Programme to be engaging, inspiring and charming.

Over the years, we have consistently seen our best and brightest accelerate through the levels to reach remarkable levels of intellectual development and giftedness by Level One and Two.
